Lana’s Mother was in ICU, but is now out and is “ doing much better,” her father’s condition has improved.
Earlier this year on April the 15th WWE furloughed and released several top wrestlers and staff as the result of the pandemic, that included Rusev. There had also been speculative rumors about Rusev jointing Impact Wrestling after the company shared a Slammiversary promotional video that showed the Bulgarian Flag back in June.
Rusev addressed the speculation of an Impact debut on his Twitch channel, The professional wrestler quoted saying.
“ As I said, any Bulgarian can go and debut. They might have another kid from Bulgaria. I keep saying that. Could be anybody. Look, I don’t know why you think it’s me, but I can’t confirm or deny. Or I don’t wanna conform or deny. Maybe they wanna pay me a million dollars for one match. Who knows? Maybe I’ll come in.”
Could Rusev be headed to Impact Wrestling?
Could the former WWE superstar be going to join Impact? The video released earlier this year, hyping the big event sure has fans believing so. Regardless of what happens, whether the Bulgarian native debuts or not he sure is having fun leaving the answer to that question open.
Could it be Rusev Day for Impact!?!?!?
We at AEE want to wish Rusev a speedy recovery, as he deals with the COVID-19 virus. As well as his wife Lana aka CJ Perry and her parents, who look to be on the mend.
