Video: Rusev and Summer Rae are way too good at this

Rusev and Summer Rae are the guests with Michael Cole this week and while they don't give much in the way of juicy quotes, the entire interview is worth a watch if only because it so clearly demonstrates how very good these two are at working this story WWE has given them. Summer, in particular, is outstanding in her role as a woman stripped of her agency and under the spell of a manipulative, controlling brute like Rusev.

This exchange was amazing:

Summer: "I do cheap shots and if she wants to play that game, we can play it."

Rusev: "We don't do cheap shots."

Summer (giggling): "Okay, you're right."

The story still has its issues but these two are delivering performances that are consistently saving it from completely bombing.
