Former ROH World Champion Rush signed a contract with AEW after various appearances last year. Since then, he has become a valuable asset to Tony Khan’s company. That said, Rush left AAA recently and it appears his actions have left AAA in a very bad situation.

As previously reported, Rush announced that both he and his father had quit working for AAA and are back to being independents. Rush was scheduled to team alongside LA Park against Psycho Clown and Sam Adonis at TripleMania 31 in Tijuana, with the losing team set to square off against each other in a Mask vs Hair match at TripleMania Mexico City.

While speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer talked about the messy situation with AAA. Meltzer noted that Rush left AAA in a very bad situation as he quit the promotion just before TripleMania.

”The Rush situation is very interesting. I have not heard from anyone there (AAA), and nobody really has as far as AAA, they have not, as far as I know, addressed the situation.


Obviously it’s a real bad situation. LA Park has been talking that he wants Rush to do the show because he’s now left up in the lurch.

AAA’s getting a lot of heat for it and perhaps justifiably so because you put this thing together for the three TripleManias and LA Park and Rush are supposed to wrestle Sam Adonis and Psycho Clown in Tijuana on July 15, and Rush has quit AAA and said he’s going independently.

He’s also said he’s looking for a contract which is a very interesting thing. He is under contract to AEW and we’ll have to see how all of this plays out, but a lot of movement in the Rushmsituation, and AAA has not addressed it at all, anywhere.”

Rush last appeared on the May 26 episode of AEW Rampage, where he teamed with Dralistico and Preston Vance, and they lost to Acclaimed and Billy Gunn. We’ll have to see what the future holds for Rush, as he certainly made many people angry in AAA.
