Lio Rush responds to ‘backstage heat’ in WWE reports

Lio Rush’ and backstage heat has been a hot topic for a while, and the man himself has taken to Twitter to address those rumors:

He closed with this statement:

“The fact of the matter is that i do what i do for the people like me. For the people who struggle, for the people who fight, for the kids who dream and for the men and woman with hope. The fact of the matter is that you don’t always know the facts and that’s ok.”

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter yesterday posted the following on Lush’ current standing in WWE:

“There’s internal heat on Lio Rush. On Raw this week, he wasn’t out with Lashley (neither were on Raw itself but Lashley worked the dark match main event). Rush is a very confident man. That can rub people the wrong way, even though you have to have that to be a star in this business. The story goes that he’s made it very clear to many people that he thinks he should be a/the top guy on the brand, and hasn’t been shy about saying it.”

Rush is no stranger to backstage controversy. In 2017 he was scolded for making a joke in poor taste regarding Emma’s release from WWE. He later talked about learning from the situation and apologized for the incident.

    I understand and admire that he has confidence, but there is a fine line between confidence and delusion. The fact that he thinks he should be the TOP guy on Raw, or on any brand (aside from 205 Live), is not confidence. It’s pure delusion. He is nowhere near talented enough to be the top guy over others like Rollins, Roman, Styles, Samoa Joe, Daniel Bryan, Kofi Kingston, Miz, etc.

    Confidence in yourself and belief in yourself and the position you should be in is one thing, but how you get that across is another.
    Fair play to him if he is just trying to grab that brass ring we hear so much about, but I hope he is going about it the right way. The difference between confident and cocky are night and day.
