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’s AEW future is now in question while WWE remains interested in signing him.

As previously reported, Rush announced that both he and his father had quit working for AAA and are back to being independents. In fact, he put AAA in a very difficult situation due to his decision.

Of course, he would end up returning to the company earlier this month. Rush also signed with AEW back in May last year but hasn’t appeared on AEW television lately for many reasons.

According to Dave Meltzer on the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Rush’s future in AEW is up in the air as WWE is certainly interested in signing him. That said, it was added that Rush has been given a strong offer to remain in Tony Khan’s company.


Rush has been talked about a lot in WWE given his contract situation although he is believed to have a very strong AEW offer to stay.

Rush’s future is in question. Both WWE and AEW have interest in him. The AEW offer is far far bigger than anyone in NXT is getting (I exclude Gable Steveson because I have no idea what they would pay a gold medalist with no experience but if it wasn’t big money he’d be doing MMA). So WWE would have to offer main roster money to be in the ballpark

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. Regardless, we’ll have to wait and see when Rush will be able to return to AEW television, should he want to.
