Former WWE superstar Miroslav Barnyashev (Rusev) shared a funny story on his Youtube Channel about a time when he worked at a Wendy’s. The Bulgarian Brute says his employers made him put a “W” on the burgers to symbolize the restaurant’s name, a task that Barnyashev was not a fan of.
They were making me put a ‘W’ on a burger,” he said. “You were supposed to with the mustard and if you work at Wendy’s please you can share that if it is still that way. You gotta draw a ‘W’ with the mustard. I did a couple times and I said, ‘that’s pretty stupid, obviously.’ No disrespect to Wendy’s So yeah, we would put in this ‘W’ and I was like ‘Man, this is really stupid. First of all, who is going to open their bun to see that there’s a “W?”‘ And I said, ‘Hey, Mr. Manager, what if you opened the burger the other way, the “W” becomes a “M” for McDonalds? And they’re like, ‘Ohhh, we never thought of that.’ So, anyways, it’s not a great story. Actually, it is a great story. A week later I never showed up to work. I was embarrassed to quit.
I’ m 20 years old and I’m fresh off the boat. I’m probably a month in in the United States of America,” Rusev makes known, but was finally convinced he had to go and get paid by the piper. I was so embarrassed to go and pick up my check after that but my friend was like, ‘Nah, man. This is money, you gotta go pick it up.’ So I got a $170 check.
