Right now in Ring Of Honor, one faction rules all. La Faccion Ingobernables holds both the ROH World & TV Championships, with brothers RUSH & Dragon Lee being the respective champions. Their deals were up at the end of 2020, but both managed to hold onto their championships in great matches, and are sticking around in ROH. However, RUSH was in talks with WWE, and could have been on his way to Florida.
RUSH Was Low Balled By WWE
That was, if WWE didn’t decide to lowball RUSH. In contract negotiations where he was represented by Konnan & AAA. This is fairly normal, and Konnan also does contract work for Rey Mysterio with WWE. However, WWE had no chance of getting RUSH due to making him an incredibly low offer. Konnan came back with RUSH’s asking price, and that was the end of that.
Considering RUSH would retain over Brody King at Final Battle, it’s clear he either has a fresh contract or worked out some type of deal. WWE have been looking for their next big latino star for years, and that could have been RUSH, but they’ll have to wait and try better next time. RUSH is only 32 years old, and still has a good ten strong years ahead of him, so this might not be the last we hear of WWE being interested.
His Next Challenger Revealed
Speaking of RUSH, we know who will be stepping up to him next for a title shot. At Final Battle, Shane Taylor once again showed how dominant he can be in singles, when his six man tag team title shot was cancelled by Bandido & Flamita being unable to make the show. Taylor instead faced and defeated Jay Briscoe, who was set to face EC3 who also couldn’t make the show.
As part of the new ROH Experience experiment, a fan poll was run on who should challenge RUSH next, and Taylor won by a landslide. We don’t have a date for this match, but we know to expect a hard hitting war.
Do you with WWE was able to come to terms with RUSH, or is he better off in Ring of Honor? Will he retain against Shane Taylor? Let us know what you think in the comment section down below.
