Lio Rush Says AEW Didn’t Know What to Do With Him

Lio Rush

Lio Rush was one of the many former WWE superstars who appeared and competed for AEW, but his may be among the most confusing as Rush made his debut at the Double Or Nothing pay-per-view in 2021.

That was the first AEW show in front of a live crowd since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, and while Rush’s debut popped the crowd, he didn’t last long with the company has Rush’s contract would expire in February 2022.

Following his departure, Rush spoke out on Twitter regarding a controversial tweet from AEW President Tony Khan on New Year’s Eve in 2021, and now claims that the company did not know what to do with him.

“Of course not” he said during an interview on the Say Less Podcast (h/t Fightful Select). “When I say things, I don’t wanna sound like it was breaking news because I feel like these things are so blatantly obvious. It’s like, yanno, he made it pretty clear to me, verbally, that when he was a fan of me, it was when I was in WWE and I was doing the manager stuff with Bobby [Lashley]. If that’s how he saw me, that’s the only light he sees me in… [then] that’s [probably what] he’s gonna shift me to be in that kind of role. Which I’m not, yanno… I’m so grateful for that time period [in WWE] because it taught me how to talk, it taught me how to present myself and build others up. No, I don’t think that [they] exactly knew what to do with me. That’s always a frustrating thing, but like you said when [I] say stuff it just gets f*cking blown up.”
