Rusev is one of the most popular stars on SmackDown Live right now, but he failed to win the United States Championship at WrestleMania on Sunday, and he failed to earn another title shot when he lost a triple threat match during SmackDown Live this week. In the wake of Rusev’s recent losses, the former US Champion took to Twitter to tease a change.
Enough is enough….. maybe it’s time for a change.

One can only speculate what type of change Rusev is contemplating, but with the WWE Superstar Shake-Up coming next week perhaps he’s interested in making the jump to Raw.
Speaking of SmackDown, Shane McMahon announced this week that General Manager Daniel Bryan officially resigned from his job, and now he’s a full time wrestler once again.
Shane then announced that Paige will be the new GM, and he took to Twitter to say that it was his privilege to bring Paige to SmackDown Live.
#SDLive has been and always will be the land of opportunities and second chances. It was my PRIVILEGE to name @RealPaigeWWE as the new General Manager.
