On April 15, WWE released 34 Superstars including Luke Gallows, Karl Anderson, EC3, Drake Maverick, Sarah Logan, and Cain Velasquez. Nine producers and Gerald Brisco were also furloughed while longtime referee Mike Chioda was let go. The releases came after the wrestling behemoth announced they would be making cutbacks because of the coronavirus pandemic, despite estimates showing WWE is still on course to make record profits in 2020.
Rusev and Aiden English were also released by the company. The pair formed the popular tag team Rusev Day in 2017 and 2018 and became one of the most popular acts in professional wrestling as they would be showered with chants of 'Rusev Day!" throughout their matches.
During a recent interview with Kenny McIntosh at Inside The Ropes, English was asked if he might reunite with Rusev once the world gets back to normal. The former Vaudevillain said it was ultimately up to the fans as he mentioned they had texted each other about teaming on the indies, but it would have to be something people wanted to see.
English said: "Obviously that day, we exchanged texts and stuff like that and all I can say is one of those texts did pose the question, 'Rusev Day indie world tour?' So, the opportunity is there. Let us know if that's something you guys would like to see."
