Rusev was released by Chris Jericho because his release request went through. It's obvious!
So let me get this straight: a wrestler was pulled from a match, for TALKING TRASH ABOUT HIS OPPONENT? Ummm, isnt that wrestling is supposed to be. Its just as well for Rusev. He would have been figuratively and basically literally buried in the match anyways.
Um, sounds more like he was IN-character while making those comments.
