One of WWE’s top stars is returning to action this week. He is from the Smackdown Live Brand. It’s none other than “The Bulgarian Brute” Rusev. The former United States Champion was last seen in March after which he suffered a shoulder injury costing him 2 months of his career.
Rusev is set to return to the ring this Sunday at a Smackdown LIVE house show in Everett, WA. He will be seen fighting in a triple threat match against United States Champion Kevin Owens and One half of The Hype Bros, Mojo Rawley. The match will have the United States Championship on the line.
Rusev is set to work his 2nd live after his return on Sunday, on Monday in Bakersfield, CA. He will be fighting for the United States Championship against United States Champion Kevin Owens and The Artist Shinsuke Nakamura in another triple threat match.
This hints us that he will most likely return to Smackdown next week. Rusev was also backstage this week but not used for some reason.
