It’s been talked about for a while, and it seems to make sense that Rusev might be unhappy with his current WWE situation. Widely regarded as one of the most underutilized WWE talents on the roster, he’s got every tool WWE looks for in a WWE Superstar, yet he can’t seem to catch a break.
He was pushed heavily upon his arrival to the WWE, then after a feud with John Cena at WrestleMania 31—a feud in which he suffered his first major loss—Rusev was rarely pushed again. That loss seemed to trigger a downward trend in which The Bulgarian Brute became an enhancement talent often used to put over other wrestlers on the back-half of their wrestling careers. After more than two years of this treatment, rumors began to circulate he was planning to leave WWE.
Both he and real-life wife Lana (also a WWE Superstar) were rumored to be on their way out together, but rumors died down when Lana publicly declared neither were leaving and Rusev was placed into a program with veteran Randy Orton. Rusev was getting more attention on SmackDown Live and it appeared as though things may have been ironed out.

Recently, Rusev led a faction from SmackDown Live’s roster and invaded Raw. He was front and center and looked more lively in his character than he has in some time. Alas, it hasn’t stopped the rumors and even Rusev has added fuel to the fire.
If I go …. I go!

In a seemingly random tweet on Sunday morning, Rusev announced loudly on Twitter, “If I go…. I go!” It was a short and unexplained tweet that sparked nearly a two thousands retweets and a string of comments begging Rusev not to leave.
Whether this tweet was in response to the recent releases WWE has handed out or the continued rumors of Rusev’s unhappiness with the creative direction of his character will be seen in time. Hopefully, this was nothing more than a kayfabe tweet and not a sign Rusev is on his way out.
