WWE Superstar Lio Rush has issued a statement through the power of social media about reports of having backstage heat in WWE.
As seen on this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw in Des Moines, IA at the Wells Fargo Arena, Lashley and Rush didn’t appear on the show. However, Lashley worked the dark main event for the live crowd but Rush wasn’t alongside Lashley as usual.
