Chunayev loves dancing. His character is frequently described as laid-back and relaxed. His most notable celebration came after Chunayev defeated Russian wrestler Islambek Albiev at the 2013 Summer Universiade, when he performed the Lezginka, a traditional dance of the Caucacus, on the mat. He also gave a military salute as a sign of respect to the Azerbaijani families of victims in Karabakh after defeating Armenian wrestler Varsham Boranyan during 2014 World Wrestling Championships in Tashkent.
