Tony Khan Says He’s Been Talking to Lio Rush About a Return to AEW

Tony Khan tweeted today that he’s been “talking to Lio Rush a lot recently about returning to AEW, and it feels like something that could happen in the near future.”

Rush replied:

Rush made his first and only appearance for AEW as the “joker” entrant in the Casino Battle Royale at Double or Nothing on May 30, but suffered a shoulder injury during that match and a week later, he said that he’s retiring from pro wrestling.

Rush said that he would finish his contractual obligations with NJPW first, and he’s been wrestling for NJPW on their US-based show NJPW Strong since his AEW appearance.
