Rush is no longer being paired with Bobby Lashley and he was not flown out with the crew for the European tour.
As many of you know, there’s heat on Rush for various things including bringing his wife on the road and rubbing people the wrong way. There was more heat on him after he claimed to Fightful that he was not making enough money. We later learned that Rush turned down a $300,000/year offer from WWE and he wanted them to double that amount.
At this point, no decision has been made on what to do with Rush but there have been discussions about moving him back to NXT.
Rush has added a booking email ([email protected]) to his account bios in place of the WWE references.
For what it’s worth, there are some wrestlers who are supportive of Rush. One WWE star told me that Rush is misunderstood and Rush genuinely feels that he can contribute more to WWE but sometimes he doesn’t express his feelings in the appropriate way. Rush was brought up to the main roster last year because Vince McMahon was a fan of some promos he saw of him online.
