Rusev praises Rey Mysterio’s work and said that he loved to work with WWE legend Rey Mysterio. Rey Mysterio also pitched one idea to WWE that he wants to make a tag team with Rusev on WWE TV.
Rusev also likes Rey’s idea and he excited to work in that way. But WWE has different plans for both of them. So WWE does not approve Rey’s idea and we do not see any alliance between Rey Mysterio and Rusev on WWE TV.
The pitched idea for Rey Mysterio and Rusev revealed
Here are Rusev’s words:
“Rey Mysterio is amazing. I loved working with him on the same team. It was my pleasure of having a tag team match with Rey Mysterio. After the match, we worked a live event, and he goes, ‘Hey man, I like working with you.’ Maybe this is just Rey being Rey because he’s such a nice guy. I’m honored to know Rey because he’s such a nice guy and one of the greatest of all-time.”
Rusev’s status following WWE release and Rey Mysterio contract updates
“He goes, ‘We should work as a tag team. I have nothing going on.’ I’m like [stunned], ‘YES! PLEASE! I BEG YOU!’ I think he went to a different story and they shot me to something else, so it never came to fruition, but even the idea, even if he was just being nice and saying it, I’m still taking the compliment.”
#5 WWE Updates: New Day’s future after Big E’s singles run

WWE previously on two occasions avoid the break up The New Day and any of the members turn his back on others. First, a few years back Vince McMahon wants that Big E should turn heel just like Seth Rollins did in The Shield.
