Rusev hasn’t wrestled much on WWE TV in recent weeks but there are plans for him, despite rumors going around regarding his future with his company. On last week’s episode of Smackdown Live, he said that he was looking to take out a legend.
In the latest Wrestling Observer newsletter, there’s a short line in there about the plans for Rusev. The reason why Rusev lost quickly at SummerSlam was not that they were punishing him but it’s part of a long-term storyline and the plans at the time were for the Orton/Rusev storyline to continue.
There’s still plenty of time between now and Hell in a Cell and it does look like Orton/Rusev will be added soon. Many years ago, Orton called himself the Legend Killer. Apparently, the idea now is that Orton is the legend that Rusev is trying to kill off.
Orton faced Rusev at this weekend’s live events in Hawaii and Japan.
As of this writing, here are the matches that have been announced for the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view:
Jinder Mahal (Champion) vs. Shinsuke Nakamura
Hell in a Cell Match
Shane McMahon vs. Kevin Owens
Also, there is another Hell in a Cell match that will likely be added to the show. We won’t spoil it here but you can click here if you want to read more.
