Rusev removes WWE references from profile, reacts to Undertaker match removal

Maybe not the best Rusev Day ever. The last 48 hours for the Bulgarian Brute have been a whirlwind. On Wednesday, Rusev was booked in a marquee match with The Undertaker for the WWE’s Greatest Royal Rumble Network special on April 27 in Saudi Arabia.

Rusev even began to promote the feud on social media hours after the WWE announced the match.

This morning (Apr. 12) Rusev and his wife Lana conducted an interview with TMZ and the leader of the Rusev Day movement talked a little trash to The Deadman. The TMZ video interview would then catch the attention of The Undertaker’s wife, former WWE wrestler Michelle McCool, and something just felt off about the whole interaction.

Hours after the interview dropped, Rusev was unceremoniously removed from his casket match with The Undertaker and replaced with Chris Jericho.

After losing his shot versus The Undertaker at the Greatest Royal Rumble, Rusev changed his profile picture on Twitter and deleted all references to the WWE from his profile.

Then Rusev would go on to tweet below.

“Life is life..... it will be #RusevDay somewhere”

It should also be noted that Rusev does not, or no longer, follows any of the WWE’s accounts on any social media.

Is Rusev, real name Miroslav Barnyashev, getting ready for something? What is next for Rusev in the WWE or maybe outside of it?
