This week on Raw, Rusev made his shocking return to TV after being announced as the father of Maria Kanellis’ unborn child.
Rusev, who had not wrestled on Raw or Smackdown since April, was reportedly kept hidden backstage before Monday night’s show.
Many people were rather unhappy about the storyline Rusev was inserted into upon his return to TV.
Many fans and critics feel as if the former United States Champions deserves to be in a serious upper midcard/main event storyline.
However, Dave Meltzer is reporting in the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter that while the eventual storyline plan for the father of Maria Kanellis’ baby is not yet known, it won’t be Rusev:
“Rusev is not the answer.”
Apparently, WWE feels as if putting off the reveal is a good way to get a much-needed ratings boost:
“Build to that as a mystery for a ratings boost.”
Stay tuned to WrestleTalk.com for the latest on WWE’s plans for Rusev following his in-ring return.
