WWE is calling attention to an ominous tweet by heat-seeking NXT Superstar Lio Rush.
Rush drew criticism in 2017 -- and was taken off of live events for a while -- after making light of Emma's release moments after it happened. Rush got heat from several WWE Superstars for the comments, which happened just weeks after his WWE debut.
Rush issued a tweet this week about "the grass being greener on the other side," and WWE.com called attention to it in a new article, which you can see below.
Has Lio Rush’s highly anticipated run with NXT already ended?
The Man of the Hour had a rough night Wednesday when he collided with Lars Sullivan in a head-to-head showdown. After not being seen on NXT for months, Rush was destroyed by the monstrous Sullivan.
After the contest, Rush told WWE.com in an exclusive video that for the first time in his life, he is second-guessing things. Rush went as far as to say he needs to do some “reevaluating.”
This was more than enough to create some doubt about the high-flying phenom’s future in NXT, but Rush added to the speculation with a cryptic tweet later in the night.

“We” are NXT ? Maybe the grass IS greener on the other side.
One mans heaven is another mans hell. I think maybe it’s time that i find my own heaven.
Rush came to NXT with high hopes. At the age of just 22, the daredevil Superstar had already made a name for himself around the world with his spectacular in-ring skills. The Man of the Hour is even an #NXTAwardFutureStar nominee. Yet, what exactly has this recent rough patch caused Rush to reevaluate? Has Rush decided to take his career in a different direction? And if so, what does it mean for his future in NXT?
Rush has experienced a losing streak on NXT TV, and the article and tweet are a part of an ongoing storyline on the show.
