WWE has been keeping NXT Superstar Lio Rush out of action ever since he joked about Emma’s departure from the company on Twitter. WWE has not had Lio perform since the same weekend he sent out the tweet.
For those who missed it, Rush wrote: “I guess these are the things that happen when you’re not TRULY ready for @WWEAsuka”
This tweet didn’t go over very well with many of the talents within the company. Dave Meltzer noted in The Wrestling Observer Newsletter that there was talk at one point of firing him over the incident. It’s being said that he’s going to have to put in serious work to get the heat off him moving forward.
