Back on April 15, WWE released 35 Superstars including Luke Gallows, Karl Anderson, Rusev, Curtis Axel, Cain Velasquez, and Drake Maverick. Nine producers and Gerald Brisco were also furloughed while Kurt Angle was let go. The releases came after the company announced they would be making cutbacks because of the coronavirus pandemic despite estimates showing WWE is still on course to make record profits in 2020.
Former NXT Cruiserweight Champion Lio Rush was also released by the wrestling behemoth. However, while other wrestlers like Zack Ryder (Matt Cardona) and The Revival (The Revolt) have been preparing for a return to professional wrestling, Rush seems content to pursue other interests as he has been promoting his debut album which is set to be released on May 11.
Now, in a series of tweets, The Man Of The Hour has stated he may never step inside the squared circle again. Rush first wrote that he was available for music features, and then added: "I legitimately might not ever wrestle again."
The former Cruiserweight Champion also seems willing to talk about his run in WWE, as he wrote: "My shoot interview is going to be INSANE. So many topics of discussion."
