It appears that WWE officials are still upset with Lio Rush due to his tweet about Emma’s WWE release since the company has not let the NXT Star perform ever since.
For those who missed it, Lio had sent out a tweet after Emma’s release saying “I guess these are the things that happen when you are not truly ready for @WWEAsuka”
While Lio did apologize for the tweet after receiving harsh comments, it was noted that several backstage personalities were not happy with it.
Later Wrestling Observer reported that at one point, there were talks of firing Lio Rush over the incident and it was said he would have to put in some serious work to get the heat off him.
It was first reported back in July that Lio has been offered a WWE contract and the company confirmed his signing back in August this year.
