Lio Rush has returned to New Japan Pro Wrestling.
On May 14 at Capital Collision, Rush made a surprise appearance and said that as soon as he is cleared to compete, he is coming for everyone in the Junior Heavyweight Division. He named a number of talents including Robbie Eagles, Hiromu Takahashi, Taichi, Taiji Ishimori, and more.
Rush has been out of action since January when he separated his shoulder while competing at PWG Battle of Los Angeles. He last appeared on NJPW programming on the January 15 episode of STRONG. There is no set timetable for his return.
Lio remained on commentary for the semi-main event match between Kazuchika Okada and Rocky Romero vs. Jay White and Hikuleo.
Fightful will have results from Capital Collision immediately following its conclusion.
