• WWE Planning To Do A Hard Reset On Lio Rush
As we all know, Lio Rush has backstage heat in WWE and things aren’t looking good for him.
According to Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful, Lio Rush isn’t expected to head back to NXT, but WWE might be planning to do a ‘hard reset’ on Rush:
“Now here’s the thing. I have not heard that [Rush is going back to NXT]. A lot of people said that they have, I’ve not. I’ve had people say that he would have heat in NXT as well.
I was told that it would be tough for him on the main roster. I’ve also been told that they would like to do a hard reset on him. They understand and recognize his talent.”
