Identity of the Russians & Rosebuds on Raw, soccer star Tim Wiese/WWE update, more news

WWE recently sent out a survey to some fans asking them what type of sports and entertainment they enjoy the most. NBA, NHL, MLB, Wrestling, PGA Golf, Pro Boxing, Amateur Boxing, Major League Soccer, National Lacrosse League, UFC, Canadian Football League, EPL Soccer, TNA, and others were included on the survey.

The guys playing Russians in the segment with Rusev on Monday’s Raw were actually wrestlers from Scotland’s Insane Championpship Wrestling. One of the guys is Joe Hendry. He spoke with a fake Russian accent. The other one was Lionheart (Adrian McCallum). You might remember that Lionheart suffered a broken neck after taking a Styles Clash from AJ Styles earlier this year. TNA British Bootcamp contestant Nikki Storm was one of the Rosebuds. She was eliminated from the show on Sunday. They also used Babyface Pitbull as one of the Rosebuds. She has also appeared on British Bootcamp. They also used Mark Coffey from ICW as a Rosebud.

There were reports in Germany this past week that Tim Wiese would be appearing at the WWE show in Frankfurt on Saturday. Wiese had said back in September that he was offered a deal by WWE. Nothing came out of it though. Wiese played for the national team between 2008 and 2012 and was the number 3 goalkeeper for them for the 2010 World Cup. Sources in WWE say that he may also attend a VIP event before the show but is not with WWE since he’s still under contract to a soccer team in Germany.
