Lio Rush Signed to WWE
Congratulations are in order for Lio Rush who has just been announced as signing with WWE. This ends months of speculation on his move to WWE. Rush had been seen backstage at Wrestlemania 33, and the former CZW champ has expressed interest in heading to NXT recently.
Rush had been a target for the WWE for some time now. With the brand split last year, the demand for talent is higher than ever. NXT is still looking to build its main card picture back up after losing the likes of Samoa Joe and Shinsuke Nakamura.
IGNITE fans came in droves to see this young star. Rush made his presence known in 2016 at IGNITE Wrestling with incredible matches with both current IMPACT Star Dezmond Xavier and internationally known Mr. 450.
We wish Lio all the best in his future!
