Rusev Expected To Return On SmackDown Live This Week
This week’s WWE SmackDown Live is shaping up to be a big show. Not only will it feature the return of Daniel Bryan, the possible TV debut of Mike Bennett and Maria Kanellis, but it looks like Rusev will be making his return this week as well.
Rusev was recently cleared from his shoulder injury which he underwent surgery for in March. His wife Lana, now receiving her own single’s push, will be wrestling Naomi for the WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship on Sunday at Money In The Bank. It will be interesting to see how WWE works the dynamic of the pair once Rusev returns.

.@TheNotoriousMMA , you talk s*** and Floyd is going to knock it out of you. And if he doesn’t, I will.

McGregor received lots of heat last year when he took some shots at WWE wrestlers, including John Cena. Always the entertainer, McGregor is a noted wrestling fan and was likely just trying to draw media attention. He even spoke late last year about possibly working for WWE in the future.
