A new report provides an update on the situation between Rush and AAA after the star left his home promotion.
AEW star Rush recently announced that he and his father La Bestia del Ring were no longer working with AAA. The announcement came after Rush was announced to team with LA Park to take on the team of Sam Adonis and Psycho Clown at Triplemania 31.
Speaking on the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer addressed the situation and said that AAA has yet to address the major departure.
“The Rush situation is very interesting. I have not heard from anyone there (AAA), and nobody really has as far as AAA, they have not, as far as I know, addressed the situation.
“Obviously it’s a real bad situation. LA Park has been talking that he wants Rush to do the show because he’s now left up in the lurch.
“AAA’s getting a lot of heat for it and perhaps justifiably so because you put this thing together for the three TripleManias and LA Park and Rush are supposed to wrestle Sam Adonis and Psycho Clown in Tijuana on July 15, and Rush has quit AAA and said he’s going independently.”
Continuing, Meltzer said that despite claims that the star is working independently, he is under contract to AEW.
“He’s also said he’s looking for a contract which is a very interesting thing. He is under contract to AEW and we’ll have to see how all of this plays out, but a lot of movement in the Rush situation, and AAA has not addressed it at all, anywhere.”
Rush last competed on the May 24th episode of Rampage, teaming with Preston Vance and Dralistico to take on the team of Billy Gunn and The Acclaimed.
