There were some rumours and speculation earlier in the week that both Rusev and Lana had asked for their release from WWE after being unhappy with how the former's career had been handled on the Smackdown brand thus far.
Lana responded to the report on Twitter, stating it was inaccurate and then that was followed by Rusev's odd tweet today, which may just be him 'trolling' the fans as he is known to do sometimes.
I want to thank @WWE front office TR and everybody involved. THANK YOU
