Rusev Will Return to Saudi Arabia for WWE, Says the Money is Good

Posted By James Walsh on 11/11/19


In an interview with The Sun, Rusev said that in spite of recent issues that left WWE stars stranded there, he plans on going back to Saudi Arabia. Here are highlights:

On his tweet about prayers during the delay: ďThe frustration just grew by each hour and me asking for prayers is nothing new. My father is a pastor, Iím a believer in God, Jesus Christ, our saviour, so I always ask for prayers just because I wanted to go home, not because we were held hostage. I donít think anyone in their rightful mind is going to hold 170 people, American citizens, hostage, I donít think thatíll reflect well anywhere.Ē

On returning to Saudi Arabia: ďI make a lot of money, I will definitely go back. I love it, I love every single trip that we do there, I love how we break barriers with women wrestling there and Lana being able to go. I think itís a great victory for the company, not just for that, but to open new doors and new opportunities to develop further, itís just amazing. Itís a great opportunity for us to be ambassadors for entertainers.Ē
