Rusev is one of the best wrestling Twitter accounts to follow. He can be funny and, at times, he can be brutally honest about things he dislikes. Sometimes he’ll tweet about his unhappiness with certain things in WWE. Many of you remember when he expressed dissatisfaction when he was advertised to wrestle The Undertaker at the Greatest Royal Rumble in April. He has also responded to false reports about his “impending exit” from WWE.
On Tuesday night, Rusev took to Twitter to express unhappiness about being left off Team SmackDown at Survivor Series. It looks like the entire card has been announced which likely means he will not be on the show.
He wrote, “Interesting i beat Bryan and Miz and yet they are captains and i can’t even make the roster. NOT EVEN QUALIFYING MATCH!!!”

Lana also expressed unhappiness about being left of the Team SmackDown’s women’s team. She wrote, “Apparently the women are just picked with NO qualifying matches ? FAVORITISM! @RusevBUL & I will not be celebrating #RusevDay & #LanaDay at #SurvivorSeries #SDLIVE”

On this week’s SmackDown Live, the following names were announced for the men’s team at Survivor Series: The Miz, Daniel Bryan, Shane McMahon, Rey Mysterio, and Samoa Joe.
The women’s team consists of Carmella, Naomi, Sonya Deville, Asuka and Charlotte Flair.
Plans can always change in WWE but with less than two weeks away, it seems unlikely that Rusev and Lana will have a match on the show unless they decide to add Rusev vs. Aiden English to the card. Even then, it would likely be a Kickoff show match.
