He’s been the talk of the WWE over the past couple weeks and the WWE Universe is clearly behind Rusev and the ever-entertaining “Rusev Day”. With that in mind, to hear that Rusev will be joining the group of SmackDown Live competitors on WWE’s Mixed-Match Challenge on Facebook Watch won’t disappoint people. That he’ll be teaming with his wife makes the announcement even more special.

Rusev has quickly become a fan favorite because the WWE has finally allowed him to unleash his personality. It’s a personality fans have started to become familiar with as he and Lana are a big part of the Total Divas show. Teaming the two up makes sense and you can see their fun and energetic personalities on display in the Twitter video they made sharing the news.

Dressed as “Rusev Claus” and joined by the Ravishing “Mrs. Rusev Claus,” the two got a good chuckle when Lana forgot to initially add the “Mrs.” to her name. She then stumbled trying to get the words “Mixed-Match” out and eventually the two invited fans to join them on Facebook to watch their team compete and try to win the event.

Videos like these make fans realize it’s a shame the two aren’t paired together on television. You can tell they enjoy working together and have a lot of fun entertaining fans. With Lana doing very little on SmackDown Live these days, she could be a natural fit with Rusev and English making them a very entertaining trio.

As for Facebook Watch, Lana and Rusev will be one of 11 teams competing to win the Raw vs. SmackDown tournament which WWE describes as a contest “where male and female Superstars team up to determine which combination of strength, skill, athleticism, and experience reigns supreme.”

Competitors include WWE Superstars like Alexa Bliss, Bobby Roode, Asuka, Charlotte, Finn Balor, Braun Strowman and others.
