Backstage Update on Rusev's WWE Status

Backstage Update on Rusev's WWE Status
There has been much speculation regarding Rusev’s current WWE status leading some to wonder whether The Bulgarian Brute would soon be getting released by the company.

Rusev even went as far as to remove all mention of the WWE from his Twitter account; however, the entire endeavor is apparently just a work. Bryan Alvarez stated the following on Wrestling Observer Live,
“There is no scandal involving Rusev, it is all storyline. Rusev is no longer in the match with The Undertaker. He’s been replaced by Chris Jericho. They ran some goofy stuff on social media to get people talking – which they did. Rusev, I believe, is going to be in The Greatest Royal Rumble, so he’s still on the show. The point is that Rusev is not quitting. He’s not leaving. He’s not getting fired. Nothing like that. They just decided Jericho vs Undertaker would be a better match even though they announced Rusev vs Undertaker before they figured that out.”
SI’s Jimmy Traina followed up with the WWE and confirmed Alvarez’ report via Twitter:
Wrestling fans, I asked the WWE if Rusev has left the company. WWE said those rumors are not true, he is still with the company and he will be in the Royal Rumble match at Greatest Royal Rumble in Saudi Arabia. #RusevDay
