What happened to Rusev? He told it himself in some responses that he gave on Twitter to some fans curious to know what his fate is. And the Bulgarian has clearly made it clear that he has put the WWE behind him who fired him along with many colleagues in April, although his wife Lana still works there.
Rusev responded to several of his fans. "I'm not dead, my friend. This is just the beginning," wrote the former United States Champion to one fan who thanked him "for the good memories" and "for being one of his favourites in WWE"
But to fans who tagged him with his ring name during his days at the WWE, the Bulgarian said he did not want to be known as "Rusev" or the "Bulgarian Brute" any longer. In fact, he reiterated that he wanted to be called by his real name, that of Miro.
To one fan who called him the "Goat of Wrestling", he replied, "I am Miro, not a goat" and to another, who said, "He is the Bulgarian Brute", he quote-tweeted his reply as, "That’s a WWE name I can’t and won’t use."
The last chapter of his personal confessions was the one relating to his prospects for the future. "Staying faithful to God and living the best life I can," was his reply (without any specific reference to a possible return to Stamford) to a fan who asked him what he hoped to do in the future after his release from the WWE?
