Lio Rush has been getting a ton of press recently, but it’s not all for good reasons. Tales of his backstage heat have started to come out of the woodwork. For the record, Ringside News has been reporting on this for months.
Lio Rush reported rejected WWE’s multi-year offer of $300,000 a year by telling them to double the amount. He also reported asked the company to let him go so they could prove them wrong.
PW Insider reports that they can confirm the stories about Lio Rush’s wife being an issue backstage. There have been multiple complaints about her being around and she even used the women’s locker room to change her clothes as far back as November last year during WWE’s European Tour.
There was also reportedly an incident where Lio Rush brought a group of people backstage and it did not turn out well at all.
There was also an incident where Rush brought a group backstage at a TV taping last year and when the group were stopped for not all having proper credentials, the group loudly began yelling at a female member of WWE’s security team, which did not ingratiate Rush to certain members of the locker room.
This seems to fall in line to all of the reports we have been hearing recently. Lio Rush has a lot of friends and it’s easy to understand that he would want to show off his super cool workplace.
However, there is no room for people who aren’t needed, especially when there is going to be an issue.
