RUSH is headed for free agency.
RUSH is currently sidelined following knee surgery and expects to be out of action for eight to twelve months.
During that time, RUSH's contract with ROH will expire, making him a free agent.
Speaking to Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, RUSH discussed his upcoming free agency.
"My contract expires in January. So far, we have not talked about a contract renewal. I am very grateful to ROH. I am also a man of challenges and goals, and I’m open to listening to everyone," he said.
RUSH suffered a knee injury at ROH Glory By Honor where he teamed with Dragon Lee against Bandido & Rey Horus. He signed a new contract with the company at the start of 2021.
Speaking on his surgery, RUSH said, "Injuries are a risk for all of us every time we get into a ring. It was the most difficult decision of my career when I heard the doctor tell me that if I didn’t have surgery in a few years, there is a possibility I would make my situation worse and worse over time. So even though I did not want surgery, it is best for me. It is eight months out [of action], which pains me, but my knee will be 100%. That’s why I opted for surgery. I wasn’t even at 60% percent, but no matter what, I was going to defend my ROH championship. I needed to be brave and strong as champion. There was a price to pay for not giving the time or patience that my knee needed. I ended up making it worse, but I never stopped until I dropped the belt."
It is unknown when RUSH will return to the ring.
Fightful will continue to update fans on his status as more is known.
