"He hasn't done something like this before. It's tough. He has the mentality of a fighter. He always wants to fight. I'm like dude just calm down. There's gonna be a fight. Let's tell the story of why we're fighting, and that's the problem with stories these days from other organizations.
They just want to fight, but nobody knows what they're fighting for. You can only have so many titles to fight for," Rusev said. "It's real emotion. People relate to it. That's why they love it and hate it so much, because it's so real."
