Rusev Day comes to SummerSlam’s Kickoff show

 
 

The 12th match for the SummerSlam card, and the first one on the Kickoff show, has been announced by WWE.

The new match features Rusev and his wife Lana taking on Andrade “Cien” Almas and his business manager Zelina Vega in a mixed tag team match. The match has been building for a few weeks now with both Lana and Vega being involved in matches.

Another match is expected to be added to the Kickoff show although it’s not known if it will be a new one or a match that has already been announced.

In a tweet, a fan pointed out to Rusev that he went from a WWE title match to the Kickoff show in one month, something that “brings a tear to your eye.” Rusev was quick to respond with, “Tears of joy?”
