There is interest from WWE towards an AEW wrestler who has plenty of options regarding his wrestling future.

RUSH signed a one-year contract after his AEW debut at Double Or Nothing 2022, which was over a year ago. It has been reported that Rush has yet to re-sign with AEW while weighing his options.

Prior to his run in AEW, Rush was a former two-time Ring of Honor World Champion prior to Tony Khan purchasing the company in the spring of 2022.

During his AEW career, Rush has been in the ring with some of the biggest names in the company while also being paired up with his good friend Andrade El Idolo as Los Ingobernables. Rush has also been part of a group with Preston Vance and Jose The Assistant in recent months.

As for what’s next, Rush has lots of options including potentially a jump to WWE.

According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE is interested in signing Rush although he may be tempted to stay in AEW.

“Rush has been talked about a lot in WWE given his contract situation although he is believed to have a very strong AEW offer to stay. But the general feeling is that they’ve got so many people in NXT ready that they’ve invested in, have put on TV, that for just guys on the roster, they have too few spots as it is.”

While Meltzer writes that WWE may not have enough spots, Rush could be looking at like he’s not being used that well in AEW right now either. Then again, if he signed a new contract perhaps that could change very soon.

It was also reported by Meltzer that while some people believe WWE has had a “hiring freeze” in 2023 due to a lack of new hires, it’s not true. The report noted that the company is open to signing anybody if they see them as a good fit.
