Rusev and Lana have officially split or so it seems. After all, she's been smooching with Dolph Ziggler. Many online are already drawing comparisons to another famous wrestling couple that broke up years ago, Marc Mero and Sable. In that instance, Sable excelled as Mero floundered for the most part, picking up the nickname "Marvelous" and pairing up with Jacqueline.
I'm remaining optimistic that Rusev is not going to follow suit. I do think that it's odd they've split the two up as they seemed tailor made for one another (yes, I know they're a real life couple). I don't see Lana and Ziggler as a long term item either and have heard many reports that she actually wants to wrestle. Fans love her right now, so I say strike while she's over. I don't think Lana is going to have any trouble remaining popular during her time with WWE.
So that takes me back to Rusev. What do you do with this Bulgarian brute? I think he needs to stay a dominant heel. I also think he needs a manager in his corner. That's not a knock on him, but I think his character would benefit from it and I miss the days of the manager. Zeb Colter and Paul Heyman are out of the picture for now, I think it would be nice to have the role of the traditional manager make a comeback.

|An awesome pick|
|He's got people skills...|
Regardless of who Rusev ends up with (probably no one), it's my hope that this extremely talented star continues to shine and the WWE doesn't make him "marvelous" too.
