Speaking to The Sun, Rusev opened up about the recent Saudi Arabia travel issues the WWE Superstars faced. He says he only asked for prayers because his father is a pastor and that is a regular habit of his and reveals that he will continue going back to Saudi Arabia, saying that the paydays are quite bountiful.
Rusev on Asking for Prayers:
“The frustration just grew by each hour and me asking for prayers is nothing new. My father is a pastor, I’m a believer in God, Jesus Christ, our savior, so I always ask for prayers just because I wanted to go home, not because we were held hostage. I don’t think anyone in their rightful mind is going to hold 170 people, American citizens, hostage, I don’t think that’ll reflect well anywhere.”
