Lio Rush most likely won’t be coming back to the main roster anytime soon. Perhaps Vince McMahon could help change his mind but it is very doubtful right now.
There are many reports about Lio Rush’s backstage heat in WWE and he also has tried to refute them openly. However, more reports suggest that things are not going well for him.
PW Insider reports that Lio Rush was actually offered a five-year contract reportedly worth $300,000. However, he turned it down while asking for twice the amount.
Rush’s claims are interesting, especially since WWE sources have claimed today that Rush was offered a new, five-year contract that was said to be in the $300 thousand range, but turned it down, instead, according to multiple sources, asking for double that number.
It was also noted that Lio Rush apparently told WWE to let him out of his WWE contract. He wants to show WWE what he is capable of outside of the company.
We are told that Rush has, at on at least one occasion, instead suggested the company release him so he can “show them” what he could accomplish outside of WWE.
We will provide updates regarding Lio Rush’s situation if there are any further developments.
