• Released Wrestler Says Triple H Didn’t Let Him Wear A Mask In NXT (Photo)
Former NXT Cruiserweight Champion, Lio Rush, was released by WWE as part of the company’s budget cuts last month.
Rush worked for a couple of months on the main roster with Bobby Lashley, and then went back to NXT.
The Man Of The Hour revealed that he wanted to sport a hornet mask in NXT, but Triple H didn’t allow it.
