Rusev was recently interviewed by Sporf and expressed his displeasure with his WWE 2K18 ratings compared to some of the other talents. Below are some highlights:
If he's happy with his WWE 2K18 rating:
"Of course not. How can an undefeated Superstar for a whole year, go face John Cena at WrestleMania on a freaking tank, be rated 84? And Sami Zayn, who weighs 180 pounds, shaves his abs in with a razor, can have a higher rating than me? And also, Shane McMahon is what, 84? He wrestles once a year?"
Vince McMahon's rating:
"The only other realistic rating is Vince McMahon who has 74, because he sucks."
Enzo Amore's rating:
"He better be 54. (After finding out he's rated 74) That's 74 more than he should have. That kid should never wrestle anyways."
The Big Show's rating:
"The Big Show's gotta be more than 84, for sure. (After finding out he's only 80) What?! Well, yeah (I'm better than The Big Show). But he's a giant!"
"He has to be about 88. (He's only an 85) No, don't tell him that. Sheamy, I'm sorry if you're watching this, I'm sorry Sheamy. You're a four-time World Champion and you deserve much better. I still love you."
How he feels about Sami Zayn being ranked the same as him:
"Wow. I think it's a fantastic job by the 2K people of really judging the talent (sarcastically)."
Bobby Roode's rating:
"The robe itself gives you five points. The entrance another two. So he's gotta be an 82. (After finding out he's an 85) This is a man who when this game came out, he wasn't even on the freaking roster. They made an assumption that he's better than me. Based on working some kids in NXT."
