It’s that day again. As wrestling fans, we can get attached to various wrestlers and certain things they do. With so many things that we see, there are always going to be things that we like more than WWE does. Those instances can set up some disagreements between the company and the fans when they don’t go the same way. One of the more popular underutilized stars made his return on Monday Night Raw.

This week on Monday Night Raw, Rusev made his return for his first major appearance since Super ShowDown on June 7. Rusev returned as Maria Kanellis announced that he was the father of her unborn child in an attempt to motivate her husband Mike. There is no word on what this will lead to for Rusev, as the story seemed ready to continue in the upcoming weeks.

Rusev is back and he officially had a match. Check out the destruction of Mike:

Opinion: This isn’t the most logical move in the world for Rusev but it’s certainly better than having him sit on the sidelines for months at a time. He has been able to get over almost on his own with his Rusev Day idea, but for some reason WWE decided to leave him at home instead of running with it. At least he’s back for the time being though and that is good for everyone.

What are you expecting from Rusev? Will the Kanellis story work for him? Let us know in the comments below.
