Lio Rush could be going on tour with the main roster.
Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet is reporting he heard from a source that Lio Rush has been considered for the Cruiserweight Championship tournament. Since the exit of Enzo Amore, the championship has been vacated and now WWE will hold a tournament to crown a new champion. NXT wrestler Roderick Strong has already moved to 205 Live for the tournament.
Hearing from a source who has been reliable in the past that there’s been talk of putting Lio Rush in the 205 Live cruiserweight tournament.— Ryan Satin (@ryansatin) February 13, 2018
Rush has not been seen much on NXT since he made an unpopular comment about Emma being released by WWE. He was signed last year and made his NXT debut in October.
The Cruiserweight division has had issues since it's beginning. Austin Aries left WWE when he was at the focus of the division. Neville went home to the UK because he was upset with the direction of the division. Enzo Amore was released while he was champion.
Fightful Wrestling will continue to report any updates on Lio Rush or the Cruiserweight Championship Tournament.
