WWE has announced on their website that they have pulled Rusev from tonight’s Elimination Chamber match. Here is an excerpt from their article:
Due to a leg injury suffered earlier this week, Rusev is not medically cleared to compete in tonight’s Elimination Chamber Match for the vacated Intercontinental Title.
Renee Young broke the news moments ago on Periscope, live from Corpus Christi, Texas, the site of tonight’s event. The Bulgarian Brute suffered the injury on SmackDown, WWE.com previously reported.
WWE has yet to announce his replacement.
