Former WWE Superstar Lio Rush was among those cut last month as a part of the company-wide budget cuts brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. Earlier today, Rush reflected on his time in WWE and thanked the fans for their support.

“Three weeks has passed since the news of my release and in this moment…I’m overwhelmed with emotions, but mostly gratitude.

“Thankful for the opportunities that I’ve had and moments I’ve experienced with the WWE. Whether that was competing in-ring or managing on the outside, I’ve had a blast. The past three years has been quite the ride! From the highest of highs, to the lowest of lows. I’ve been tested and I’ve had to battle my demons like never before. I’ve dreamed of becoming a WWE Superstar since I was five years old and I’ve accomplished that at such a young age.

“Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end and with sadness in my heart, I’m afraid this is it. My story isn’t over though. Another chapter just needs to be written. I love you guys and I’m beyond grateful for the love, support, and understanding over the years. A 22 year old kid coming in and a 25 year old man coming out with my head held high. I’ve always been a dreamer and you better believe that I’m dreaming big. Huge day for me tomorrow! My 1st album. MY FIRST MAJOR PROJECT SINCE THE RELEASE. I’d love nothing more than your continued love and support. #EverAfter”

“Ever After” is the name of Rush’s album, which releases on Monday.

As noted earlier this month, Rush had commented, “I legitimately might not ever wrestle again,” possibly moving towards a hip-hop career.
