Lio Rush talks about working with Bobby Lashley
| Local Sport News | Usa news
Lio Rush burst onto the wrestling scene when he was designated as Bobby Lashley’s man of fashion on WWE RAW.
The latest AEW signature stated that he was initially told by WWE backstage staff that he was not ready to be on television yet. Instead of being demotivated, he pushed the Man of the Hour to cut promotions and upload them to his social networks. Eventually, they came to the attention of Vince McMahon, leading to him being named Bobby Lashley’s manager.
On a recent episode of Oral Sessions with Renee Paquette, the former WWE Cruiserweight Champion explained how he ended up landing the role:
“I got a call when I flew home from 205 saying they needed me for Monday Night RAW and to send my flight details. They didn’t tell me what I was doing. Of course, I’m backstage when I got there, going into panic. I don’t know what’s going on. Paul Heyman came up to me and said, “Vince had seen one of your promotions that one of the writers had shown him on your social media, and he thought you were great. He wants to pair you up with Bobby Lashley. I say, ‘That’s great,’ “Lio Rush said.
AEW’s Lio Rush found his time in WWE as Bobby Lashley’s “surreal” hype man
Despite being fired from the company, Lio Rush had only positive things to say about the company. He called his WWE journey “surreal”:
“That was pretty surreal. My whole journey in WWE was pretty surreal for me from the moment I signed on, being in NXT only two games before they put me at 205. [Live]. I was only on 205 for about 4 months before I was put on RAW. I was doing 205 and RAW at the same time. That happened because that was because I was in the [WWE Performance Center] and me wanting to be so ready for television, “said Lio Rush.
Bobby Lashley made a less-than-stellar return to WWE, but his pairing with Rush raised him like a heel. Now a former WWE Champion, The All Mighty is preparing to face Goldberg in Saudi Arabia.
Lio Rush made his AEW debut at AEW Double or Nothing 2021, entering the Battle Royale Casino as the Joker. Now he plays a different character in AEW, and his first involvement was helping Matt Sydal land a match against CM Punk in AEW Rampage.
