Former WWE Superstar Rusev (Miroslav Barnyashev) has been banned from Twitch.
Fans who go on his Twitch page right now will see the default error message for banned/deleted accounts: “Sorry. Unless you’ve got a time machine, that content is unavailable.”
Miro has not said why his channel was banned but it could be because of a video that showed Lana in a bikini. Twitch has strict rules and they state the following under the “nudity and attire” section of their community guidelines:
“Swimwear is permitted as long as it completely covers the genitals, and those who present as women must also cover their nipples. Full coverage of buttocks is not required, but camera focus around them is still subject to our sexually suggestive content policy. Coverage must be fully opaque, even when wet. Sheer or partially see-through swimwear or other clothing does not constitute coverage.”
For anyone wondering, if he was banned for violating the rule listed above, it’s likely a short ban so he should be back soon. In January, Impact Wrestling was banned for a week due to a segment that featured Rob Van Dam and girlfriend Katie Forbes.
Earlier this week, Rusev made headlines when he announced that he was done with pro wrestling because he is now a full-time content creator. Click here for more on what he said about being done with wrestling.
UPDATE: Rusev just posted this update:
I was too sexy for Twitch. I learned my lesson. See y’all tomorrow https://t.co/LpksrVZZJM
