The Red Cyclone became more like the Red Breeze in Season 3 of Street Fighter V. Zangief — once a formidable opponent for many in the game — proved to be far less strong since the patch, and with many of his most notorious players — Itabashi Zangief, and Brutus, and others — abandoning ship, you could tell there were problems in Mother Russia.

VesperArcade recently discussed the issues that caused the character to go downhill after his strongest version. Most notably, they decided that several of his nerfs need to be revoked, and named especially at his mid-kick parry move as something that needed to become more useful in Season 4.
