WWE: Is Rusev Injured And Out Of Elimination Chamber
Rusev looks to be benched and on the injury list after suffering a leg injury on SmackDown.
The Buglarian Brute, 29, is believed to have picked up a knock to his ankle in his match against Ryback during tapings on Tuesday and had to be helped backstage.

Snaps on Twitter show the ferocious star in a wheelchair, carrying a crutch and with his right foot in a cast.
He has now been pulled from live event bookings for a series of cage matches with John Cena, with Kane stepping in to take his place.
Bray Wyatt is among the contenders to take his spot in the Elimination Chamber Intercontinental bout, should Rusev be too injured to perform.
