– We noted before that WWE NXT posted a backstage video of Lio Rush talking about how he needed to re-evaluate his NXT career following the loss to Lars Sullivan on last night’s show. Rush later posted a cryptic tweet and indicated a possible departure from the brand. WWE’s website picked up on the tweet, which appears to be a new storyline for Rush. WWE announced the following on the tweet, which can also be seen below:
Lio Rush tweet calls to question Superstar’s NXT future
Has Lio Rush’s highly anticipated run with NXT already ended?
The Man of the Hour had a rough night Wednesday when he collided with Lars Sullivan in a head-to-head showdown. After not being seen on NXT for months, Rush was destroyed by the monstrous Sullivan.
After the contest, Rush told WWE.com in an exclusive video that for the first time in his life, he is second-guessing things. Rush went as far as to say he needs to do some “reevaluating.”
This was more than enough to create some doubt about the high-flying phenom’s future in NXT, but Rush added to the speculation with a cryptic tweet later in the night.
“We” are NXT ? Maybe the grass IS greener on the other side.
One mans heaven is another mans hell. I think maybe it’s time that i find my own heaven.

Rush came to NXT with high hopes. At the age of just 22, the daredevil Superstar had already made a name for himself around the world with his spectacular in-ring skills. The Man of the Hour is even an #NXTAwardFutureStar nominee. Yet, what exactly has this recent rough patch caused Rush to reevaluate? Has Rush decided to take his career in a different direction? And if so, what does it mean for his future in NXT?
