Former WWE Superstar Lio Rush shocked the pro wrestling world when he made his debut at Double or Nothing last month as Rush competed in the Casino Battle Royal match.

Fans were excited at the prospect of Lio Rush competing in dream match, but that will no longer be happening as Lio Rush announced his retirement from the pro wrestling world.

Lio Rush cited terrible injury that he suffered in the Casino Battle Royal match which ultimately made him decide to hang up his boots for good. Fans were very sad to hear this news.

AEW President Tony Khan took to Twitter and released an official statement regarding Lio Rush’s untimely retirement due to injury.


Lio Rush reached out to me today, and he shared that he’d planned to announce his retirement from pro wrestling tonight. While this news was unexpected, I’m glad that he’s made a choice that he’s confident will make him and his family happy.

Lio is a great talent, and I enjoyed briefly working with him, and I absolutely wish him the best.

It is certainly unfortunate that Lio Rush had to retire so early as he had a bright future ahead of him. Injuries can truly happen at any time inside the squared circle and it is simply unfortunate it had to happen to Lio Rush.
