Lio Rush has a lot of heat backstage in WWE and there are some serious questions right now about what the company is going to do with him next.
We previously reported that WWE could be considering a “hard reset” on Rush’s character. However, while trying to defend his actions on tour and his position in WWE, Rush might have done even more damage.
During an interview where he was trying to explain his situation, The Man Of The Hour said that he is broke. Mike Johnson mentioned on PW Insider Elite audio that this brought up a lot of questions in the locker room about how Lio Rush is spending his money.
“There’s a lot of people in the company who are very upset with him about the claim that he wasn’t making a livable wage and we’ve heard from a number of wrestlers that, if he wasn’t’ making a liveable wage, why was he able to bring his wife with him on the road every weekend and why was he flying in first class with his wife as often as he was?”
“There were a number of times wrestlers saw him or passed him in first class or sat with him in first class or passed by him to go to coach so there were some people who were not happy with him.”
Lio Rush traveled with his wife all over the country, and apparently, they flew first class. This is not a cheap ticket to book on a regular basis.
There are ways to be a WWE Superstar and save money. TJ Perkins has elaborated on this fact. Apparently, Lio Rush didn’t get that memo.
