WWE Smackdown Live

Despite being advertised to appear, Rusev was not on WWE Smackdown Live tonight to make his Smackdown debut or his title match demands.

Rusev was advertised last week by WWE, as well as in today’s WWE.com ‘Quick Hits’ preview, but did not appear on the show at all. Rusev posted the following Tweet, saying he attended tonight’s NHL Western Conference Finals game three between the Anaheim Ducks and Nashville Predators:

Sorry #SmackDownLIVE I had to make the @PredsNHL game. See you when I see you.

Rusev previously appeared in a taped vignette making a demand for a WWE Championship match at WWE Money In The Bank, or he’d return to Bulgaria instead.
