Lio Rush has backstage heat in WWE

Lio Rush

Finn Balor challenged Bobby Lashley for his Intercontinental Championship at Elimination Chamber. It was a Handicap match, so Lio Rush teamed up with Lashley as well. In the end, Finn Balor pinned Rush and won the title. After the match, Bobby Lashley attacked Rush and laid him out in the ring.

On PWI Insider Elite audio, Mike Johnson noted that there is a lot of heat on Lio Rush backstage in WWE. While it’s unknown whether this was the reason for his loss at Elimination Chamber, it certainly wouldn’t be a surprise if that turned out to be the case.

“It appears as if Lio Rush is done with Bobby Lashley. I can tell you behind the scenes there were not a lot of people surprised at that and not a lot of people surprised that Lio took the pin.”

“There are times Lio has a reputation for rubbing people — including other workers the wrong way. Whether that was being held against him and that was part of the reasoning for him losing or whether it was just a decision to protect Lashley and shift the belt to Finn Balor, I guess we’ll have to see based on how Lio is presented in the weeks and months to come.”

It appears as though Lio Rush’s mouth has landed him in trouble. We will have to wait and see what happens to him since he is no longer associated with Bobby Lashley.

    The match itself was made solely to protect Lashley.. the end was not a surprise. They probably want to set Lashley up to be Seth Rollins opponent after henwins thr title at WM

    Bobby needs Lio since his personality is bland in WWE. If they take Lio away from him, they need to make sure his personality is turned up a lot more than what it has been so far during his run.

    What a load of crap. This guy has no idea what he is talking about. Firstly, as seen on RAW, no Rush and Lashley are not done with each other. And secondly, why would having heat on Rush cause Lashley to lose his title? The reason Rush took the pin is either the age old case of Vince thinking it would be unbelievable for one of his big muscleheads to take a pin from a small guy like Balor, or it is purely done to continue this feud where Lashley can keep going on about how he never lost the title and Balor could not beat him.

    I thought Lashley was done with Rush until Raw last night. Guess we cant get rid of that pest.
