Breaking Up Rusev Day?

When Montreal went CRAZY for Lana the other day, they strongly hinted that Rusev Day could be splitting up because Aiden English is holding Rusev back.

I hate this idea for a variety of reasons:
  1. I'd hate it for Aiden the most because I think that gimmick still has some mileage in it. While I like him I can't help but to think that this would be high-water mark for his WWE run. (Think Damien Sandow post-Miz).

  2. The Rusev Day pairing with Aiden and Rusev has been an absolute riot, and was such a great change of pace from the initial Rusev w/Lana pairing.

  3. My biggest concern is that a pairing with Lana takes away what makes Rusev so great right now. I have no problem with him having an edge, but I'm concerned he becomes a blander monster again.  Rusev Day is so much better than that. His current presentation touches on his actual natural charisma so much more. It would be a shame to lose that.

  4. My ACTUAL biggest concern is that they'll break them up ON Rusev Day. That would just be unnecessarily cruel to them, and the fans.

Anyhow, I hope they swerve us and Rusev Day stays together. No matter what though I would like to see Rusev get a MASSIVE push. That guy is gold and has been since he debuted on the main roster.
