Former ROH World Champion RUSH has officially signed with AEW, marking his transition after appearing sporadically in 2022. Despite grappling with a hamstring injury, he’s gearing up for his long-awaited return to the ring. However, RUSH has taken a stand against accusations of dishonesty surrounding his injury.

Known as ‘El Toro Blanco,’ RUSH made waves in the Gold League of the AEW Continental Classic, securing six points with victories over Mark Briscoe and Jay Lethal. Yet, he faced setbacks against formidable opponents like Jay White, Jon Moxley, and Swerve Strickland.

The grueling tournament took its toll on all competitors, with RUSH pushing through despite nursing a torn hamstring. Nevertheless, he eventually disclosed his clearance for in-ring competition.

Speculation arose when Dralistico mentioned visa procedures for himself and RUSH, leading some to assume it explained RUSH’s television absence. However, RUSH took to social media to set the record straight, vehemently denying any falsehoods about his injury.

”I was injured as confirmed by AEW doctors. Now I am recovered, I had a visa with someone else and now in the process of getting my visa through AEW.”

”Stop posting b***** for f***** likes.
I don’t ever lie about injuries.”

RUSH recently hinted at expanding La Faccion Ingobernable with new male and female members. As for his return to AEW television, fans eagerly await news on when they’ll witness RUSH’s electrifying presence once again.
