Update On Lio Rush’s Contract Status With AEW


Lio Rush made his AEW debut at Double or Nothing as the final entrant in the Casino Battle Royale.

AEW President Tony Khan talked about this during the post-Double or Nothing media scrum. This is where he said he has a handshake deal with Rush. 

Dave Melzter revealed in the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio that Rush has actually signed a contract with NJPW recently. Thus, NJPW allowed him to make the AEW appearance and Rush may work more shows with AEW but likely won’t be signed to the company.
