Road Dogg Talks How WWE All Of A Sudden Stopped Pushing Rusev Day

WWE Senior Vice President of Live Events and pro wrestling legend Road Dogg took to an episode of his “Oh… You Didn’t Know?” podcast, where he discussed topics such as how Rusev Day was getting over with the fans, but he honestly doesn’t know what went down that all of a sudden WWE stopped pushing them.

Road Dogg said:

“So it’s yes, yes, we saw it. Yes, we saw Rusev Day getting over. I honestly don’t know what happened to Rusev Day. One day, we were pushing it and the next day we weren’t. Honestly, when I say we weren’t pushing it, it didn’t go away. It didn’t just disappear, we just weren’t doing anything with it anymore.”

“Every time I would pitch something it would get shot down. So I don’t know what happened. I’m not going to say anything, because last time I said something, I got a phone call and I’m not gonna have that happen again.”

“But honestly, I don’t know what went down that all of a sudden we stopped running with it because it was going really well.”

Road Dogg also discussed how former WWE Chairman Vince McMahon was not a fan of former WWE Star Aiden English, which could have led to the decision to stop pushing Rusev Day.

Road Dogg said:

“I think it was getting over and I don’t know if Vince was a fan of Aiden English. I feel comfortable saying that. I don’t know if he was a fan of Aiden English. He’s a great singer. He’s a great wrestler.”

“He’s, I mean, he’s not a beautiful man, but neither am I. Well, look, he doesn’t, his body looks like everybody else’s, just he’s not tanned and he looks like me or whatever. You know what I mean? Like he just looks different.”

“And I don’t mean nothing bad by that. You can’t say nothing nowadays without having to qualify it with everything. God, the dude is not good-looking, what do you want me to say?”
