Even though her husband tested positive for COVID, there is some good news as well. According to recent reports, Lana’s mom is on the mend.
As things stand, Lana’s family fought and is winning against this horrible virus.
What Does This Mean For Rusev?
Since his release from WWE, there has been no word about a wrestling return for Rusev. However, we are sure there are plenty of opportunities.
Rusev, now going under the name Miro, could consider AEW. This promotion is a great option, especially as it is in direct competition with WWE.
Miro could do wonders for the brand, too. After all, he could pull some WWE fans to the AEW product.
Unfortunately, his current diagnosis means he will be out of action for a little while. Coronavirus has a minimum isolation period of two weeks.
While two weeks is the minimum, it could be longer depending on how Rusev recovers.
No matter where he ends up, I am sure that the promotion will want to protect their staff.
For now, we wish Miro a speedy recovery. And as always, we will keep you informed of the latest Rusev news and rumors.
