Happy Rusev Day! We all chipped in and got WWE fans an exclusive sneak peek of the pro wrestler having a “Drop the Mic” rap battle against “Shark Tank” star Mark Cuban.
“You are not Jeff Bezos/you’re just an imposter/who looks like Charlie Sheen banged Frankenstein’s Monster,” the WWE Superstar raps of his wealthy tech-investor opponent.
The lyrics were much, much better than the flow. Please don’t “Rusev udrya, Rusev machka” (“Rusev hit, Rusev crush”) us, Bulgarian Brute.
Rusev, who in an earlier round had to stomach the Dallas Mavericks owner referring to his wife Lana as a “mail-order bride,” then spits that he asked to battle “Mr. Wonderful” — Kevin O’Leary from “Shark Tank” — and ended up with “Mr. Wonder Bread” instead. Ouch, we guess.
In response, Cuban boldly called the man who could snap him in two a “Bulgarian Chewbacca.”
And then there was this from the MicroSolutions magnate: “Lana has millions of followers for her pics/but why she get the ‘Likes’ when you’ve got bigger tits?”
Lana, herself a pro-wrestler — as well as a star on “Total Divas,” her husband’s manager, an actress, a dancer, a model and a singer — hails from Florida and is named Catherine Joy (C.J.) Perry. In other words, the “Ravishing Russian” is as American as apple pie — don’t let that flawless and never-changing accent fool you.
Rusev, real name Miroslav Barnyashev, is from Bulgaria, though you probably weren’t questioning that at this point.
Watch the video above.
The Rusev vs. Cuban episode of “Drop the Mic” airs Wednesday night at 10/9c on TNT. Fellow WWE Superstars The New Day are also on tonight’s episode, battling R&B trio SWV.
