Every action as a consequence and Lio Rush is learning this the hard way.
NXT star Lio Rush received a lot of backlash from WWE Superstars after his tweet about Emma being released by WWE last week. Dave Meltzer reported in the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter that the tweet Rush sent out got him some major heat backstage. The heat almost got him fired from the sports entertainment company.
Meltzer noted that Rush is going to have to put in a lot of work to get the heat off of him. This was evident from some of the tweets from current WWE stars in response to Rush. It was mentioned that Rush would have likely been released from WWE if it wasn’t for the apology coming soon after the tweet.
According to a report from PWInsider, NXT management had a talk with Rush about the controversial tweet. Rush was at the Performance Center in Orlando this week taking classes as per usual.
Lio was the winner of the 2016 Top Prospect Tournament as well as his time in Combat Zone Wrestling (CZW) where he was the former CZW World Heavyweight Champion and a former two-time CZW Wired Champion.
Rush wrote the following cryptic messages on Twitter:
“A mistake should be your teacher, not your attacker. A lesson, not a loss. A temporary and NECESSARY detour, not a dead end. And I can assure you this isn’t the end, it’s only the beginning. Live, learn, and move forward. #iCameToCollect #ProveEmWrong.”
Rush signed with the sports entertainment company just two months. He has made a name for himself on the independent scene. It was an expected signing, to say the least. He has already started training at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida and is featured on the NXT brand.
He wrestled for ROH in April and had spent his time wrestling on the independent scene since then. He also finished up his commitments with CZW, EVOLVE, and MCW Pro Wrestling prior to signing with the WWE.
Rush started with MCW in Maryland in 2014. WWE has signed a ton of former Ring of Honor stars as of late including Adam Cole, Kyle O'Reilly, and Bobby Fish, who have all made their WWE television debuts.
In joining the WWE, Rush reunites with a former tag team partner, current NXT Superstar The Velveteen Dream, with whom Rush co-held the Maryland Championship Wrestling Tag Team Titles in 2015.
