On Sunday, Rusev will challenge AJ Styles for the WWE Championship at Extreme Rules, and he told ESPN that winning the title is on his bucket list.
“Becoming heavyweight champion and holding the top title is on my bucket list,” Rusev said. “That spot is always getting tighter and tighter, but why not? A man can always dream.”
