Crunchyroll recently talked to Rusev about his love of anime. He discussed other WWE stars that enjoy Japanese cartoons, his favorite show, and what hero he’d compare to Hulk Hogan.
Check out highlights below:
Other wrestlers that are anime fans:
There are so many anime fans in wrestling. There’s me, Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston, Big E, Ricochet. I think it attracts athletes now more than ever because of how accessible it is. There’s something for everyone. You can watch the lighthearted anime, which I love. Or you can watch the darker ones like Death Note, that make you go “WOAH…I’m scared to watch this alone.”
His favorite anime series:
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. I love the story of a brother making a mistake, and doing anything he can for his brother. It’s something me and my brother can really relate to.
Who is his favorite anime character:
All Might, because he’s basically Hulk Hogan. Hulk Hogan is my favorite wrestler.
