United States Champion Rusev has torn through every Superstar thrown his way, but at WWE Fast Lane, the rookie monster will try the most decorated opponent imaginable: John Cena. The Authority announced the match on Twitter on Jan. 26.
After finishing second in the Royal Rumble Match, eliminated by eventual Rumble winner Roman Reigns, an irate Rusev stormed the set of Royal Rumble Fallout and interrupted a backstage interview with the Cenation leader. Cena did not take kindly to the act, and within seconds the altercation erupted into a pull-apart brawl.
Now that the match is official, it will not be long before the WWE Universe finds out if even Cena is strong enough to stop the mighty Hero of the Russian Federation.
Rusev has yet to be pinned or made to submit in the year since he debuted. Will the 15-time World Champion, undoubtedly looking to rebound from his loss in Royal Rumble’s instant-classic Triple Threat Match, stop the unapologetic Super Athlete in his tracks? Or will Rusev only further demonstrate his dominance, this time taking down the WWE Universe's perennial favorite in the process?
