Are the Days numbered? Every now and then, a wrestler catches lightning in a bottle and find the kind of thing that is going to work no matter what they do. It might be a finishing move or a chant, but sometimes it is a catchphrase that makes everything work for a wrestler. That can make it very frustrating when WWE ignores whatever the fans are wanting, and now it might come back to cost them.
Over the course of the last two and a half years, Rusev has gone from a regular, run of the mill villain to one of the most popular names in WWE. The RUSEV DAY chant has carried him further than a lot of fans would ever believe that he could go. With so much fire behind him, it seemed to be a matter of time before he broke through. That has not exactly happened, and Rusev might have something else in mind.
According to Ringsidenews.com, Rusev has recently changed the name on his Twitter profile to Miro (a shortened version of his real name of Miroslav) and, until this weekend, his description to “soon to be free agent). The description has since been changed to, as of this writing, “add a bio to your profile”. Rusev has not signed a new contract with WWE, though there is no indication he plans on leaving the company.
I don’t understand the HATE it’s coming. My name is Miro, I’m not in a storyline. I am speaking as a human being. Please don’t make this about WRESTLING

Rusev has been busy as of late. Check out what he has been up to:
Opinion: I have no idea what is in Rusev’s head but if he wants to leave WWE, that is completely up to him. After the incredibly popularity he built up for himself on the strength of the Rusev Day stuff, I’m not sure why WWE felt the need to leave him on the sidelines and never use him in a meaningful way. They are now with the love triangle deal, but it’s not like that has been the kindest story to him. I’d like for him to stay, but I can’t blame him if he doesn’t.
Do you think Rusev will stay with WWE? Do you want him to? Let us know in the comments below.
