As seen below, this week’s sitdown interview with Michael Cole features Rusev and Summer Rae. Here are highlights:
* Cole asks if Rusev still loves Lana and Summer answers for him – no. She says they’re so happy and wonders why Cole would ask that. Rusev just answers with a “no.”
* Cole asks why Rusev insists Summer dress like Lana. Summer says she wishes Lana could look as good as she does. Summer says she’s all about making Rusev happy and she will go the extra mile. Rusev is tired of the Lana questions. Cole asks if Summer was behind the design of Rusev’s new Bulgarian flag with his face on it. Rusev says that’s not true and he designed the flag but she chose the picture.
* Cole brings up Dolph Ziggler returning on RAW. Cole says people are referring to Rusev putting Summer in the way of Ziggler’s superkick as a cowardly act. Summer says it was her fault she got in the way and she apologized to Rusev. She says he’s not a coward and she shouldn’t have been in the way. Cole asks about Lana kicking her and she says Lana finally learned to kick, good for her. Summer says Lana thinks she’s special now but all she did was deliver a cheap shot.
* Cole says Rusev got kicked on RAW also and Ziggler could do it again at SummerSlam. Rusev says he previously crushed Ziggler’s throat with a single blow and at SummerSlam, it will be worse. Rusev says he’s going to break Ziggler’s spine at SummerSlam, like a jigsaw puzzle, and then Lana can try to piece him back together. Rusev says after that, he will look straight into Lana’s eyes and tell her she’s crushed.
