Could Lio Rush Be Planning An Exit From WWE?
In the world of modern wrestling, there are more options than ever before. While a few years ago, the only major name in North America was WWE, All Elite Wrestling has given another home for talent. Combine this with smaller promotions like Impact Wrestling, Major League Wrestling and even Ring Of Honor stepping up their games, and things are looking promising. This has some talent considering their future within WWE, and one of these people is former WWE Cruiserweight Champion, Lio Rush.
Things Aren’t Working Out With Lio Rush In WWE
Despite reaching several peaks that some stars would dream about in the company, this isn’t the first time the 25 year old standout has had issues. He was previously taken off TV for several months after an entertaining stint as Bobby Lashley’s manager. He would return and have an excellent run of matches in NXT with Drew Gulak & Angel Garza, before being written off TV once again recently by a returning Jack Gallagher.
While speaking with Forbes, Rush said the following. “Honestly, this is such a time of uncertainty in my life right now I really don’t know what is next for me other than continuing to push my music. I dunno, wrestling-wise I just gotta see where the cards are kinda dealt in my favor and just seeing where I stand in WWE. It’s a rough time for me right now, especially with everything that I’ve gone through in the company and coming back and…yeah, I’m just not feeling it right now. “
Wrestling Might Not Be His Next Move
Despite being one of the best wrestlers in his age range, it might be time for him to step away from the ring for a while. Lio Rush has another passion, that being music. He creates rap/hip-hop music, with Lost being his most recent song, which premiered on World Star Hip-Hop. Rush has a fantastic voice for the modern landscape of the genre, and will find some success there. Wrestlers like John Cena & R-Truth have had some successful careers in the genre, and Rush could be next.
Regardless of what is next, we know that Lio Rush is not comfortable wrestling with the current scare of COVID-19, and will not be on TV due to this. He will be focusing on his music in the meantime, and we will keep you posted on this situation within WWE.
