Lio Rush got a lot of backstage heat in WWE and he is currently not even on WWE’s main roster. He also hasn’t appeared on WWE television at all last week. Reports suggest that he might be benched and ”held hostage” while other reports suggest he might be going to NXT.
Sean Ross Sapp stated during Fightful Select’s Q&A that he has not heard any rumors about NXT. In actuality, he might have some heat in NXT as well. So WWE might just be changing up Lio Rush entirely.
“Now here’s the thing. I have not heard that [Rush is going back to NXT]. A lot of people said that they have, I’ve not. I’ve had people say that he would have heat in NXT as well.”
“I was told that it would be tough for him on the main roster. I’ve also been told that they would like to do a hard reset on him. They understand and recognize his talent.”
It is a wonder what WWE will do with Lio Rush in the end. A ‘hard reset’ might be difficult for him at this stage considering all the negative attention he has garnered.
