Rush is referring to his triumph over Mark Briscoe on AEW Dynamite on November 29. Despite the victory, he has since participated in four matches, including three more on Dynamite as part of the Continental Classic and an eight-man showcase tag match at the Worlds End PPV on December 30.

Rush signed a new deal with AEW while WWE was still interested in him last year. The duration of Rush’s absence from action remains uncertain, so we’ll have to wait and see when he will be back.
