Backstage Update On Lio Rush's WWE Status (6/29/2019)

There’s not much new to report on Lio Rush.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reported this week that he has pretty much disappeared from WWE TV and the response from the creative team is that nobody is even talking about him and he’s not someone that is likely to be used anytime soon.

The last time he appeared on WWE TV was before WrestleMania 35 and at one time, there were rumors that WWE was going to be sending him back to NXT, however, that too has not materialized.

Rush remains under contract with WWE but has removed all mentions of the company from his social media and has put up an email address where he is taking "business inquiries."

We will keep you posted on the WWE status of Lio Rush as more information becomes available. Until then, make sure to keep checking back here at eWrestling.com, and for late-breaking news and rumors, follow eWrestling lead reporter Matt Boone on Twitter @MattBoone1984.
