Vince McMahon is said to be very happy with one of Raw’s newest Superstars, according to what we were told by a source.
We’re told that McMahon has taken a great interest in Rush and, as first reported a couple of weeks ago in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, McMahon has been feeding lines to Rush in the IFB he wears during Bobby Lashley’s matches.
Rush’s story is interesting. Dave Meltzer reported that the original idea was for Rush to be the lead heel on 205 Live and his gimmick would include him always hiding behind Babatunde Aiyegbusi. In fact, Rush and Babatunde did some practice promos at the Performance Center before plans were changed. Babatunde has yet to be brought up to the main roster.
The reason why Rush is on Raw is that someone in creative saw one of his promos online and gave it to management. Vince McMahon saw it and decided that he needed to be on Raw as Lashley’s spokesman/manager.
Here is a promo of Rush and Babatunde from a few months ago:
