- As noted, this week's WWE RAW saw Rusev return to action after being away on hiatus. Maria Kanellis earlier revealed that she and Mike Kanellis were expecting a baby boy, but then said Ricochet is the father. Ricochet insisted she was lying and that led to a quick win over Mike. Maria then revealed that Rusev was the father, and brought him out to the stage for his return. Rusev destroyed and squashed Mike, making him submit with The Accolade.
Above is video of Rusev talking to Kayla Braxton after RAW, and below is video from the return. Braxton asked The Bulgarian Brute what is going on between him, Mike and Maria.
"A lot of questions," Rusev said. "A lot of questions going on. At this point in time I'm just not ready to answer them, and that's that."
