Rusev's storyline feud with Bobby Lashley and real-life wife Lana has been ongoing for almost two months now, but the next chapter of their rivalry will not be taking place at Survivor Series.
Lana has been dealing with severe backlash on social media since the start of her recent angle, while Bobby Lashley has even been sent death threats.
On this week's episode of Monday Night Raw, Rusev had to be detained by police after he attacked Bobby Lashley in a restaurant after discovering that the latter was on a date with Lana.
Bobby Lashley and Lana made their returns to WWE, both appearing to close Monday night Raw and making out in front of Rusev. It was unexpected, it was awkward and Lashley even commented on the kiss afterward.
Most of the main WWE superstars are relatively healthy and competing on a full-time basis, but the company will have to make do without two of their top heels for the foreseeable future.
If the opening segment of Monday Night Raw was any indication of what fans can expect with Paul Heyman now in charge, things got interesting.
Bobby Lashley has taken a break from his regularly scheduled lobbying for a match with Brock Lesnar and turned his attention to Goldberg.
Bobby Lashley has hinted that he could take time away from WWE for his next MMA fight, revealing that he's still under contract with the Bellator promotion during an interview with British publication Sky Sports.
