Rusev Day Celebration - Triple Threat POV | Smark Out Moment

Rusev Day Celebration - Triple Threat POV

Posted by Robert DeFelice Sunday, September 23, 2018
Welcome to another edition of Triple Threat from Smark Out Moment, where three of us get together to discuss three questions based on one big topic going down in the week of professional wrestling.

This week, Robert DeFelice, Tony Mango, and Callum Wiggins will be giving their thoughts on what makes a truly memorable Rusev Day!

What day is today? Rusev Day! But, what is truly the best way to celebrate it? Let's discuss…

Question 1: How do you spend Rusev Day traditionally? Do you feast? Do you superkick strangers? What is your favorite way to spend this holiday?

WIGGINS: Well first I start off with a breakfast to satisfy your typical Bulgarian Brute (although now a Full English breakfast is off the table). Then I put on my finest Rusev Day shirt and go through the daily cycle of wrestling training, powerlifting and trolling people on Twitter, getting everywhere I need to go by tank of course. When the day is truly crushed, I hunt down my dinner, eat it raw, and go to sleep with my sometimes Russian, sometimes American wife.

MANGO: The key is to treat every day like it's Rusev Day. It's more of a spiritual state of mind than something to go through a checklist of things to do, like putting up a Christmas tree and such. When celebrating Rusev Day, it's important to crush everything in sight and eat a festive meal of potatoes.

DeFELICE: At the start of every Rusev Day, I roll out of bed and look in the mirror to enjoy a few minutes of self-appreciation. This is a reminder that it's not just Rusev Day, but it's handsome Rusev Day! After that, I go downstairs to my kitchen where I eat Rusev Day breakfast at my Grandmother's table that Grandpa Rusev made special. Breakfast which usually consists of Caribou that I caught the night before while out hunting on my tank, with two eggs that over easy, and a very thick slice of Bulgarian bread. It used to be an English muffin but those are no longer healthy for me. The rest of my day typically consists of me working out, and eating a good five more times, before capping off my day with a White Russian and heading off to bed.

Question 2: As we all know, this is a time for giving. What is the best Rusev Day present you’ve ever received??

DeFELICE: Without a doubt the best Rusev Day gift I ever received was in quite an obscure town in an event that only I witnessed where Sheamus lost to Rusev after tapping out to The Accolade. Rusev was finally put over and I myself was put over the moon.

WIGGINS: Unfortunately, I'm yet to receive an Accolade on Rusev Day like many others have. But I think my favorite Rusev Day present has to be a cold, dead fish. If it's good enough for Summer Rae, it's good enough for me!

MANGO: One time, I received a traditional ceremonial star of the federation, but I wasn't informed of which federation it was. I'm assuming World Wrestling. Maybe Russia. It was the best. It was #1.

Question 3: Who would win in an Elimination Chamber pitting The Easter Bunny vs. Cupid vs. Jack Skellington vs. The Gobbledy Gooker vs. Santa Claus vs. Rusev?

MANGO: I mean, I've watched Chasing Amy. I know what gets the $100 bill. Does that count?

DeFELICE: Rusev would start this hellish bout with Cupid. Now, admittedly Cupid does have a hell of a choke hold but Rusev has one of his own and Cupid taps out to The Accolade. Rusev then takes one look at Jack Skellington and says "I do not care about you. You are all over Hot Topic but Rusev is the hot topic." Rusev then hits a Machka Kick, and Jack is properly sent back to Halloweentown. Gobbledy Gooker gets eliminated without a lot of fanfare which is a surprising performance for Hector Guerrero underneath the mask. So just when it seems like the Easter Bunny and Santa Claus are about to take over, Jesus Christ himself comes down and smites the two mascots or taking away holidays that are supposed to celebrate him. Jesus spend declares on the mic: "Happy Rusev Day to all and to all a good-night."

WIGGINS: Wow, this is going to take a lot of thought. Well, Santa Claus would still be recovering in February from the Christmas rush, so he'll be easy pickings. This is Cupid's busiest month, so he'll be too distracted to concentrate on the match. I imagine both the Easter Bunny and the Gobbledy Gooker would get eggs-hausted quickly when dealing with such a grueling match.

So I think it comes down to Jack Skellington and Rusev. While Skellington will be at home in a scary structure, Rusev specializes in crushing bones, so the Bulgarian Brute will win and make it a Rusev Day to remember!

Those are our thoughts on the issue, but where do you stand?
