Rusev has made his return to WWE television and with a new look.
During Monday’s episode of RAW in Knoxville, Tennessee at the Thompson-Boling Arena on the USA Network, WWE had The Street Profits hold a gender reveal party for the second child of Maria and Mike Kanellis. This is where Maria revealed that they are expecting a baby boy.
A quick singles match took place that saw Rusev beat Mike with his finisher.
Rusev was last seen when he worked the 50-Man Battle Royal at the WWE Super ShowDown pay-per-view event in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia at the King Abdullah Sports City Stadium. He’s also only appeared on a handful of live events since WrestleMania 35.
This comes after some of his comments in media interviews and on social media.
