Lio Rush was once a star on 205 Live before he was moved over to Monday Night Raw when the company was impressed by his promo ability and the videos that he was sharing online.
Over the past few months, Rush has been seen as The Hype Man for Bobby Lashley and has helped the former ECW World Champion to win the Intercontinental Championship numerous times, but it appears that he could have been taken off Monday Night Raw following a number of issues backstage.
Last night Lashley appeared on Raw alone and did all of his own talking as part of a Miz TV segment, where Rush wasn’t even mentioned and the commentary team didn’t give any reason for his absence either.
Recent reports suggested that there was a lot of backstage heat on Rush after a confrontation with Finn Balor when The Demon King told Rush that having his wife backstage wasn’t a good idea in the eyes of Vince McMahon.
There was reportedly another incident as well that saw Rush create a scene backstage but the details of this are scarce at the moment.
Rush has since posted a cryptic message on Social Media and looks as though he could either be heading back over to 205 Live or could be another star heading out of the company very soon.
Of course, this isn’t the first time Rush has been the subject of backstage heat since the star posted an ill advised Tweet following Emma‘s WWE release when he was in NXT which reportedly got him kicked out of the locker room but he has since been able to recover and reignite his career, so Rush could easily find a way back from this as well.
