Lio Rush Thinks The Door Is Open For Him To Return To AEW

Could Lio Rush return to AEW one day?

The old saying goes ‘never say never’. It’s true for all walks of life, and has proven true time and time again in professional wrestling.

For most wrestlers when they leave a certain promotion the door is never truly closed, and former AEW star Lio Rush believes this to be the case, saying the following on the Generation of Wrestling podcast when discussing the potential of an AEW return:

"I don't think anything is ever closed. Nothing is ever closed, nothing,” said Rush. “I feel like I made the best out of the opportunity I was presented while staying true to myself. That's honestly what is most important to me. That's what is most important to me. I can't hop on a plane and go all over the country and not be myself. I can't live this double personality lifestyle. I don't have the energy for it. There are things in my life that mean a little more to me, that are closer to the surface than doing something that I don't feel comfortable with for a paycheque. That's one bag out of a million. I'm not tripping over it.

“I do think, one day, it'll be inevitable for me to cross paths with Tony again. Look what New Japan is doing with AEW right now. Even with my departure, there was no bad blood. The situation was what it was, and we parted ways. I don't think that door was closed, at least from what I know. I don't know how they feel on the other end, and I'm not worried how they feel on the other end, I'm doing me. When that time comes, it comes. If it doesn't come, it's not meant to be.”

Rush wrestled for AEW across two brief runs, with Rush’s exit in February 2022 believed to have stemmed from the Tony Khan/Big Swole controversy in December 2021.
