‘Sums it up’ – Former WWE star Rusev mocks Shane McMahon’s return as Raw Underground is debuted
Rusev aimed a dig at WWE following the return of Shane McMahon on Raw.
McMahon returned to WWE TV to present Raw Underground, a new concept which incorporates MMA elements into wrestling.
In a ring with no ropes, competitors were seen having MMA-style fights with McMahon watching on.
The debut of Raw Underground received mixed reviews by wrestling fans, while a former WWE employee did not hold back on Twitter.
Rusev, who was released by WWE due to cuts brought on by the coronavirus pandemic, said: “‘We want to build new talent’. Shane is back! Sums it up.”
One of the fighters who dominated the first night of Raw Underground was Bobby Lashley, Rusev’s former foe in WWE.
The pair were involved in a love triangle storyline towards the end of 2019, before it fizzled out in the New Year.
In May, Lashley told talkSPORT the Bulgarian Brute will be a superstar wherever he ends up.
He said: “With Rusev, you know how it is in this business, people come and people go.
“But with Rusev, I don’t think anyone is debating this: Rusev is an incredible talent.
