The WWE had a night off on Thursday so the wrestling promotions soviet power couple, Lana and Rusev, decided to head to Nashville to support the Predators in the team's playoff series against the Chicago Blackhawks.

The Bulgarian-born Rusev lives in Nashville with girlfriend and in-ring manager Lana, and the pair were decked out in Predators gear to support their hometown team.

The two brought the team good luck as well, as the Predators avoided elimination by beating Chicago 5–2, sending the series to a sixth game.

Is Dolph Ziggler teasing a WWE departure?

Rusev is so excited to be a #Predators fan ! #PredsPride ! #NHLPlayoffs !!! #Crush Chicago !!!!!!
