RUSH will remain with AEW.
The luchador hasn’t been on AEW programming in months, last showing up on AEW Rampage in tag action, but he did share a video on social media of him signing an new contract with Tony Khan at his side. The video came with the following statement.
“I started a new chapter in my personal and professional career, people doubted I could make it, today I want to say that im 100% AEW. Thank you Tony Khan, thank you fans and thank my LFI brothers. We can now rule the wrestling world.”

RUSH Has A Resume In Wrestling
While RUSH hasn’t really received much of an opportunity to shine in AEW as of yet, he’s shown his star power potential both in the United States and in Mexico. Most notably, RUSH was established as a strong ROH World Champion, winning the title two separate times before the pandemic hit and put the promotion on hiatus.
He currently is a part of the faction La Facción Ingobernables along with Dralistico and Preston Vance. It was recently reported that WWE had heavy talks about bringing RUSH in but AEW made him a generous offer, something the star obviously took.
He’ll be doing more of the latter on August 12 for AAA Lucha Libre at TripleMania XXXI CDMX after just competiting on the TripleMania July 18 card.
RUSH will be putting his locks on the line against Sam Adonis, LA Park and Psycho Clown. Whoever loses will either have to remove their mask or shave their head.
