Lio Rush Backstage Update (4/28/2019)

Update On Backstage Heat On Lio Rush, Incident With Finn Balor

As noted before, Lio Rush has been in the WWE doghouse lately, dealing with internal heat backstage. A new report from suggests that an incident with Finn Balor is partly responsible for that.

According to the report, Rush has insisted on having his wife present at almost all times and was told by Balor that Vince McMahon likely wouldn’t take kindly to her sitting in on rehearsals. Rush then responded “unfavorably” and word got around backstage to other wrestlers, many of whom wanted him out of the locker room for a while. Rush has also repeatedly been talking backstage about landing a new reality show with his wife, which also has not endeared him with his fellow talent and actually ended up with management involved. Finally, the report notes that one source in the company doesn’t think Rush will be back on the main roster anytime soon, though it’s unclear what this means for Lio’s current status with WWE.

In response to all the recent rumors last night, Rush then tweeted the following along with removing any mention of WWE on his Twitter page and including an email address for business inquiries (which in of itself isn’t strange, but worth noting).
