It was from this point onwards that the mishap commenced. While the first step was perfect, during the second step, Rusev’s eye takes the hit of Cesaro’s knee.

“There was one spot, he wanted to do a step over victory roll. Again, we’re just talking in there. We’re fighting, whatever gimmick. He comes in and he steps and he steps on, you know I’m on one knee, so he steps one foot down. With the second one I think he’s supposed to step on my foot here [Rusev’s thighs] and then he can come up. So when he steps in here, with the other foot he’s going in, his knee gets me right in my eye.”

According to Rusev, he immediately knew what had gone wrong. He takes a look at Lana who was quite shocked with the instant swelling of his eye.

I felt it right away. As soon as he went up we went for the victory roll. One, two, big kick and I just knew it right away. I just sit up, look at CJ [Lana]. First of all, he’s pinning me and I’m like ‘Why Tony? Why?’. He’s like ‘what are you talking about?’. I look at CJ ‘look what he did to my eye’ and CJ just looks at me like ‘oh my’ cause it just swelled up instantly.”
