WWE Superstar Rusev was recently interviewed by DIRBG to discuss several professional wrestling topics. Rusev talked about his relationship with his wife, Lana, and revealed the name of the comic book they’re writing together.
Here are the highlights:
Relationship with his wife Lana: “We are twenty four hours [a day] together, we travel in the same car, we sleep in the same hotel room,” Rusev said. “When we get home on Wednesday or Thursday, I have a room with games and whatever I like. She knows I have quality time for myself and she has hers. This is how I unwind. I like being alone.”
“She went home to Nashville to take care of our little ‘daughter’ – a dog that we have,” Rusev said. “We had left her at a daycare for two weeks and [Lana] had to go take care of her. Now she’s sending me photos how the puppy is swimming”
The name of their upcoming comic book: “Lana always had the dream to be a comic book hero,” Rusev said. “We decided to collaborate with Jason Starr who has a lot of experience [with Wolverine, Punisher, Gotham]. We didn’t just tell him to make a comic book, we’re actually very invested in the art, in the story, in the development. We made a contest for artists that want to work on our comic book.
“We are [characters in the comic book] but it will be very different from what we are in the ring. We’ll have different names as well. We chose to release it on Christmas because it is my birthday as well. The name will be Dark Country.”
