– The AEW contract of Rush recently expired and WWE was interested in signing him.
However, according to the Wrestling Observer, AEW President Tony Khan offered him way more money than WWE, so Rush decided to re-sign with All Elite Wrestling.
WWE offered Rush NXT money. In order to out-do Tony, WWE would’ve had to offer main roster money to Rush.
Rush confirmed re-signing with AEW by posting a video of him signing the new contract.
Below is what he wrote:
“I started a new chapter in my personal and professional career, people doubted I could make it, today I want to say that I’m 100% AEW.
Thank you Tony Khan, thank you fans and thank my LFI brothers.
We can now rule the wrestling world.”
