There has been a lot of speculation and rumors on the WWE contract status of Rusev, and his wife Lana, after they had some time off earlier this year, and after reports of the two being unhappy with how they were being used. However, they are currently working a storyline with Bobby Lashley and Rusev has praised the opportunity in recent media interviews.
There has been no confirmation on new WWE contracts to Rusev and Lana but Rusev tweeted a response to a fan today and indicated that he has not inked a new contract with the company.
Rusev responded to a fan who was talking about AEW needing star power. The fan added that Rusev made a "huge mistake re-signing" with WWE, and that's when he responded.
Rusev wrote back and said, "Who said I've re signed !?!?"
There has been no word on if Rusev actually did re-sign or not, but we will keep you updated with the latest information as it becomes available. Below is Rusev's full tweet to the fan:
WWE have their stars on 5 year deals, and you just don't see how any of these guys are going to reach their potential. Rusev made a huge mistake re-signing. Thing is, outside of WWE, AEW is a new company and NJPW are growing here, but I can't see anyone making the waves WCW did.— Lee Shellum (@Shellum_Lee) November 17, 2019
