Lio recently said the following about a possible return to WWE during an interview with Wrestlinginc:
“I think situations change, I think values and stocks rise. I think people like money. I think people like to make money and that’s what it ultimately comes down to when it comes to business. So no, I don’t rule anything out.”
2-Time WWE Hall Of Famer Booker T had the following to say Lio’s possible return to WWE on his podcast:
“I think there’s somebody out there right now that’s knocking on the door, that’s looking to get his foot in the door. Like a Lio Rush.
I heard Lio Rush put something out, a cryptic tweet, and Lio Rush may be trying to make a return to the WWE. You know what, that’s got controversy written all over it (Laughs).
If Lio Rush can just shut his mouth for a second, he’d be okay. The dude’s a talent. I always say, on social media, you can put your foot in your mouth. And I see this guy is talent.
But, sometimes you get to a point and you wonder if you want to deal with somebody because the social media presence and how outspoken they are on social media. We’ll see.”
