Rusev and Bray Wyatt both suffer from the same exact problems. You see they are both unique in their own ways and have very high potential to be top guys. They ALWAYS win their matches. Until they face John Cena and Roman Reigns. Both them where dominant and top guys then they go in feuds with John Cena and Roman Reigns and "magically" start looking like nerds. Losing constantly, made fun of, it's the same for both.

Rusev hasn't been the same since losing to Cena at three PPVs in a row in 2015.

Yeah it totally killed his momemtum and character, but Cena just HAD to look strong.

Fortunately their fixing the situation by having him lose again! That's totally gonna work, right?

As for Lana, well she can't wrestle. She should be a manager again.

I like Rusev, he is a funny guy, and he is good in the ring. Turn the guy face, let him do more funny stuff on the mic, ppl will get behind him, granted.

I will bet you that there is a feeling in the back that Rusev and Lana are not serious about the business. Granted, Rusev and Lana have probably worked very hard to be in WWE. However, the reality is that they are probably not considered "Company folks". Look at the "love triangle" angle. Granted, it probably made some people uncomfortable. And, it probably scared the shit out of Rusev. However, there are better ways of showing your displeasure other then announcing your RL engagement on Twitter, which blew up a storyline.

Another incident, and if WWE had any excuse for deflating them, this would be a good reason. You see, they asked for "time off". Not to rest or for a family emergency, mind you. So, why ask for the time off? Both are season ticket holders for the Nashville Predators. ANd, they wanted to cheer them to victory. Huh? You try that with your boss. Go ahead, I insist. See how long you keep your job. Now, add the cryptic threats Rusev is sending via Twitter regarding leaving the Company, you can see why WWE is no longer very serious with them.

When they split for the first time on screen, they were never the same after that. It was a really strange period, and to think, they were such a good and strong act at the time. It gt really strange, really quick.

In the last year or so when Rusev and Lana were put back together it hasn't been the same as initial 2015 run when Rusev was undefeated. Rusev has improved a great deal on the mic and is more comfortable doing promos. So I don't think he necessarily needs a mouth piece. I admire Lana for training to to be apart of the Women's Division. She could have coasted on her good looks and charisma and could have been a valet her whole career. She's not getting pushed to the moon and the pairing with Tameena helps protect her shortcoming. I think Rusev and Lana have peaked together so split them up for a while and see what they can do on there own.

What happened is WWE Creative made terrible decisions for the development of Rusev and Lana around the time of the first Rusev vs Cena feud, when Rusev lost.

Now, Rusev wasn't 'crushed' yet, but nothing WWE Creative did after that really helped him or Lana. YET, they were still getting good heel heat because of the attraction of Lana being with this brute Rusev. People took notice and Rusev could get heat from the crowd for ranting and raving about his greatness and the support and adoration he gets from Lana and vice versa.

Seems like someone in "Creative" (i put it in quotes because they aren't being very creative in this situation) just doesn't believe in the potential of Rusev with Lana anymore.

This is laughable because the ONLY thing that made me interested in Rusev or Lana is when Rusev is WITH Lana and vice versa.

I have ZERO interest in seeing Lana wrestle unless it was a REALLY compelling storyline arc when she is with Rusev. But Lana as a singles wrestler is a joke. Pure and simple, it's a joke. She is beautiful but not a good wrestler.

And, I have little interest in seeing Rusev by himself.

There is a lot WWE could do to repair the characters of Rusev and Lana to be more interesting and it starts with putting them back together.

This doesn't mean Rusev needs to go on a massive win streak and hot shot to the top as a champion. He may, indeed, be best suited for mid-card feuds and titles. But he is hardly worth the time if he is just there by himself and for no GOOD reason he doesn't have Lana by his side.
