During his appearance on Reel Talk, Rusev discussed the explicit nature of his current storyline and why he thinks most storylines of today don’t work. Here are the highlights:
On Not Having An Issue With The Risque Nature Of His Current Storyline:
It’s no different than what Brad Pitt or any of the other actors would be doing in Hollywood. That’s what you do, you’re an actor and the certain role requires you do something like that. You can always say no but we’re not that people, we’ve always been professional. I don’t think it’s a problem at all, for me personally. I know it’s not a problem for her. And it was always about her. I always asked her for her opinion. People always run to me and ask me, ‘How you feeling about this?’ I’m like, ‘Why are you asking me, why don’t you go and ask her, she’s the one who is supposed to kiss him, every now and again, I’m not kissing the guy.’
On What Storylines Need To Work:
He had the mentality of the fighter, he always wants to fight, fight, fight, I’m like, ‘Dude, just calm down, this is not about just fighting, we’re gonna fight, but let’s tell the story about why we are fighting.’ And that’s the problem with stories these days in different organizations, they all want to fight, but nobody knows what they’re fighting for.
