Lio Rush made his return to professional wrestling and AEW during Wednesday night’s Dynamite, and has signed with the company.
In a promo, Rush said that he spoke with Tony Khan and is in AEW, and has a gimmick portraying himself as bringing his big business style to the company.
Rush made a surprise debut at AEW’s Double or Nothing pay-per-view this past May. He was the mystery entrant in the Men’s Casino Battle Royale. His appearance was given the green light from New Japan Pro Wrestling, where Rush is still currently under contract.
Rush announced this past June that he was retiring due to an AC joint injury that caused his arm to feel like it was hanging off his body. He further noted he wanted to what was best for himself and his family.
