Lio Rush achieved a lot over his years within the squared circle. Before moving to NXT, where he later won the NXT Cruiserweight Championship, The Man of the Hour frequently appeared on WWE’s main roster as Bobby Lashley’s spokesperson. Sadly, things didn’t work out for him under the bright lights of WWE’s main roster.
There were rumors that Rush offended several people backstage with his demeanor at the time of his switch to WWE’s developmental brand. With that experience behind him, Rush recently appeared on Say Less Podcast where he spoke about how he handled himself during his WWE tenure, which came to an end with his release in 2020.
“At first, I’m just going with the flow. I’m doing what I’m supposed to do and I’m excited. I’m getting opportunities handed to me, well, not handed to me; I had to work for everything that I got. But I definitely feel like I got to that position in my class, right? And when it came to a halt, when I got released from WWE, it was almost like I had to just start over, and I didn’t really know what to do. And it took me a while for me to realize, like, man, maybe I was a little too young for everything that got thrown at me. But at the same time, I don’t regret those times at all. I don’t wish that I didn’t go through these things … I feel like it prepared me for so much once I did get released.”
After leaving WWE, Rush went on to work for renowned companies including AEW, NJPW, AAA, GCW, PWG, RevPro, and MLW. To get the latest updates regarding the wrestler, stay tuned to Ringside News.
