Former United States Champion Rusev was released from WWE along with a number of other stars back in April. Rusev was negotiating a new contract with the company at the time and it’s believed that the Bulgarian star didn’t want to re-sign even though his wife Lana had already put pen to paper.

While many of the other released talents have since moved on to debut in both AEW and Impact Wrestling since their non-compete clauses have expired, Rusev is yet to decide what the future holds for him inside a wrestling ring.

During a recent Twitch Q and A live stream, the former Champion revealed that he’s done with professional wrestling at present.

“I’m done. I’m done, man. I’m just enjoying my Twitch. I’m a professional Twitcher, YouTuber, content creator, I’m not a wrestler anymore. Can I be your favorite streamer?”

Rusev has since revealed that his new name is Miro, which many believed would be his new ring name, but that may now not be the case.

The former WWE star went on to reveal that he’s had a conversation with Vince McMahon via text message, even though The WWE Chairman hasn’t called him, since there are many reports that WWE is now looking to re-sign many of the stars who were released when COVID-19 began to cause problems.

“I texted Vince, I haven’t talked to him. I texted him, it was a nice conversation.”

Rusev’s wife Lana remains part of WWE’s Raw roster even though the former Total Divas star has recently been taking time away from the company after her mother, father, and husband Rusev all tested positive for COVID-19.

Lana herself hasn’t tested positive for COVID-19 but was advised to isolate given the fact that she had been exposed to a number of people with the virus.
