VIDEO: Rusev Announces His Return To WWE TV

As reported, WWE talent Rusev was out recovering from a shoulder surgery he underwent to correct a nagging problem last month. Since his departure Rusev was moved to Smackdown Live along with his real-life wife Lana.

Rusev released a video two weeks ago claiming that the only way he would return to WWE TV would be if Shane McMahon gave him a WWE Championship opportunity. That obviously didn’t pan through, so Rusev released the following video announcing that he will be making a WWE TV return next week on Smackdown Live.
