Update On Rusev’s Return To The Ring, Kevin Owens Says He’s ‘The Best In The History Of WWE’


– Rusev will be making his return to the ring for some live events this weekend for SmackDown LIVE.

He is advertised to face Kevin Owens and Mojo Rawley in a Triple Threat Match on Sunday in Everett, Washington. Then on Monday, he will face Owens and Shinsuke Nakamura in a Triple Threat Match in Bakersfield, California.

Rusev was backstage at SmackDown LIVE on Tuesday but was not used.

– After defeating Chad Gable in his New Face of America Open Challenge this week on SmackDown LIVE, Kevin Owens talked about why he believes he’s the best in the history of WWE.

“I really respect what Chad Gable tried to do tonight. Tried to make a name for himself. I did the same. Remember when I walked in on Raw, right in the middle of John Cena’s “Open Challenge,” and I laid him out. You remember that? Of course, that’s not what happened tonight, because I am the absolute best in the history of WWE and I know a lot of people might think that’s not true, they might think that’s a crazy claim, they might even think that I’m trying to say that to rile people up and that I don’t believe it myself. But trust me, when I say I am the best in the history of WWE and when my time is done and it’s all said and done, everyone will see it too.”
