In a new interview with the Say Less podcast, Rush revealed that he lost out on the acting gig due to an injury.

"Well actually, that opportunity [Power Rangers acting gig] kind of got stripped away from me because of my second injury. So yeah, yeah. I had a lot going on. I believe I was supposed to be one of the villains. I was gonna have a small fighting sceneā€¦ I was probably fighting off one of the Power Rangers, which would have been dope. I was looking forward to that."

Rush recently to the ring in October after missing most of 2022 due to injury. Since returning, Rush has competed for promotions like GCW and PWG.
