According to the Wrestling Observer, Rusev is once again in a tough predicament with WWE.
Reports are that the Bulgarian Brute has not appeared on television recently due to an ongoing contract dispute. His last appearance was the January 20th episode of Monday Night Raw, where he teamed with Liv Morgan in a losing effort to Bobby Lashley and Lana. Whether this impacts his ongoing feud with Lashley remains to be seen, as the contract situation could still be worked out.
Rusev briefly changed the bio in his Twitter last month to "soon to be free agent." Over the summertime news came out that his contract was set to expire, and while his wife Lana re-signed with the company, he has yet to make a deal. He's won the United States championship three times during his WWE run.
