Rusev cuts the most babyface promo of his WWE career on SmackDown

The WWE finally let Rusev open his babyface wings and now Rusev Day may break up on Sunday.

What a cruel twist of fate.

This week on SmackDown, Andrade Cien Almas defeated Aiden English in short order and post-match Zelina Vega cut a promo about the end of Rusev Day at SummerSlam. The thought of an “useless holiday” like Rusev Day being destroyed made Almas and Vega uncomfortably too happy.

Before Rusev Day could be disparaged anymore, Rusev and Lana came out to shoot down any ideas Almas and Vega had.

Rusev and Lana were welcomed by cheers from the Greenville, South Carolina live crowd.

Then Rusev made some jokes, smiled and gave the mic to his partner. Lana uncorked the catch phrases as her and Rusev ended the segment holding hands.

Everyone in the WWE Universe is begging to cheer Rusev. We all just want an opportunity to cheer the Bulgarian brute, his wife and his best friend. Let us celebrate Rusev Day the way it was meant to be, with Rusev as a smiling babyface.

Will the Rusev Day trio survive SummerSlam this Sunday?
