This Sunday at WWE Money in the Bank, Big E and Rusev will clash in a match of international proportions.
Rusev and Big E first collided last month at WWE Payback, when The Super Athlete was able to weather the early storm and defeat Big E with the Accolade. From there, the two Superstars have continued to spar with one another, both verbally and physically.
This past Monday night on Raw, Big E made quick work of Damien Sandow with the Big Ending, then – after weeks of having to listen to Rusev and his Social Ambassador, Lana, disparage the United States – let loose with an inspiring speech touting his love for all things red, white and blue. However, the patriotic moment was short-lived as Lana distracted her American rival, allowing Rusev to attack from behind and once again apply the Accolade on the defenseless Big E.
Yet, Big E would not remain down for long, as he confronted the Hero of the Russian Federation on SmackDown, getting the better of him and taking Rusev off his feet.
Can Big E defend his country’s honor proudly, or will he once again succumb to the sheer power of Rusev and the Accolade? Find out at Money in the Bank, available on WWE Network and pay-per-view, this Sunday at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT!
