Rusev Day ended after Aiden turned on Rusev, which was a shame as it was a very over gimmick. On the latest audio update of Wrestling Observer, Dave Meltzer explained what he thinks will happen after Aiden and Rusev square off on this week’s Smackdown. It doesn’t look good for Aiden. This is what he said:
”They worked all weekend too. You know what that’s all about. It’s basically just squashing Aiden English. Maybe they’ll do more on television but, again as entertaining as I actually find the angle I still feel the same way I do from the beginning when they were doing the angle. I see nothing in the long run that is for the better because Rusev was aided by Aiden English as far as getting over.”
“The whole Rusev Day thing has lost a lot of its luster without Aiden English and Aiden English without Rusev they’re not going to do a thing with him. Once he gets squashed from the feud eventually if not immediately then Aiden will just struggle getting airtime. Maybe he’ll do some stuff in prelims and stuff but I just can’t see them pushing him on his own, but we’ll see.”
This is just another instance of WWE killing anything good far before it could have reached its potential.
