Former WWE Superstar and current NJPW star Lio Rush made his debut at the AEW Double Or Nothing pay-per-view earlier this year. Unfortunately for Lio Rush, his debut was short-lived as he suffered an AC injury in the Casino Battle Royale at the pay-per-view. Due to this, he had announced his retirement from pro wrestling back in June.
Lio Rush previously stated that he was content with what Rush had accomplished in his pro wrestling career. Eventually, Rush was able to make a full recovery and came back to pro wrestling. He is now signed with AEW and makes regular appearances on AEW television.
While speaking on Gettin’ Better with Ron Funches, Lio Rush talked about his heat with Mark Henry and how he was able to mend fences. Rush also revealed the important life advice Jon Moxley gave him backstage in AEW.
That’s pretty much what it is, just two very strong-minded individuals had a disagreement and now, it’s over. Everything’s good now, and I think a lot of people are coming to terms with that. In my case, people know how I am. People are starting to kind of see that picture, especially with me, being a little more open about my story, and why I’m doing this, and who I’m doing it for. I’ve always been a guarded person, but I feel like once I let loose and start to kind of let people in a little bit, things are starting to move in a way that I want them to. And people are a lot more accepting of who I am as a person.
“People are different. People are all doing it for different reasons. At the end of the day, we’re all human. I just had a conversation with Mox. First time I’ve ever had a conversation with Mox, and I’ve known him for so long, but he said to me, ‘We’re all just humans doing human s**t and going through human s**t,’ and I always felt like that but I never knew how to express that in a way that didn’t come from anger. And now, it’s coming from a place of reason and of experience, and just being older and more knowledgeable. It’s going pretty good.”
Lio Rush is currently managing Dante Martin and is likely to make his in-ring return to AEW soon enough. On the other hand, Jon Moxley is currently recovering from his alcohol addiction, due to which he is taking time off from AEW television.
