Lio Rush made the decision to focus on his family and retire from pro wrestling. A current injury that he sustained at AEW Double or Nothing caused him to rethink his future, and he decided to retire. Now he has a few more thing to say before he goes in for his procedure.
Rush posted another note for fans this morning. The former WWE Cruiserweight Champion said that he is content with what he achieved in his pro wrestling career. It was not an easy rode for Lio Rush, but he made it all the way to WWE. He also retired during a time when his name was starting to heat up as well. Now his unique story will carry on apart from the pro wrestling world.
Before i head into my procedure today, i wanted to share something. I’m content with what I’ve accomplished in my wrestling career. I’m happy that i made the decision that I’ve made. This wasn’t an easy one, but it was the right one. I started this wrestling journey at 17 years old and I sacrificed everything that I had to put me in the position that I am currently in today. To me, this is my 2nd chance to be the father that I’ve always wanted to be and the husband I’ve always wanted to be. I’ve been through a lot in my life. A lot unseen and a lot unheard. I have a story. A unique story and i hope to tell it one day at the right place, at the right time and in the right setting. I love you guys and i will miss you guys so much. Thank you for everything that you’ve done for me and my family. #Wrestling
Lio Rush is still young enough to change his mind about retiring from pro wrestling again. He still has commitments to fulfill with New Japan Pro-Wrestling whenever he is cleared to compete once again. We will have to see if the pro wrestling bug bites him again to encourage a return.
For now, it seems that Lio Rush is still sticking with his retirement. This was not an easy decision, because the pro wrestling world has done so much for him and his family already.
Will Lio Rush ever return to pro wrestling? Sound off in the comments!
