Lio Rush's WWE future remains in limbo.
Former WWE star Lio Rush is currently making headlines with his music, but his heart remains in WWE. Unfortunately for him, it is unknown when he will return to WWE television.
“It’s a very strange thing,” Lio told HipHopDX. “WWE has so many employees and talent. They’ve got SmackDown, RAW and NXT. And on top of those brands, they have so many wrestlers and people that aren’t on TV. It’s just one big wheel and once one thing is done, the next thing just keeps on going. A lot of the times, things don’t pan out or work out the way that they thought they would. So, this time that I’m spending right now is just reevaluating, being at home with my family and working on other projects that I’ve always wanted to work on, which was the single, and hopefully more music in the future.”
It was reported in April that Lio was having issues backstage with his co-workers. Shortly after news came out of his reported issues, Fightful spoke to Lio, who gave his side of the story. In the interview with HipHopDX, Lio explained why he spoke with Fightful.
“A lot of the times these rumors just get taken as facts because I feel like people are afraid or scared to tell their side,” he revealed. “But I take pride in what I do and the things that I believe in. I don’t like my reputation being altered by dirt sheets [wrestling websites] or anyone who doesn’t know the full side of any story. And I just wanted to throw some positivity at the situation because everybody’s always trying to capitalize on the negative and make stories out of things that have no source or substance behind it.”
Rush recently released his new single, "I Wonder," which you can listen to below.
It is unknown when he will return to WWE television.
