During an interview with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, ROH World Champion RUSH confirmed that a few months ago, he underwent knee surgery.
According to RUSH, he had knee surgery after ROH “suspended” him and La Faccion Ingobernable members, Dragon Lee, Kenny King, and Bestia del Ring for the month of May.
“After my suspension [a storyline where I and LFI were suspended for the month of May], I had surgery on my knee,” he revealed. “I am now healthy and stronger than before. I’m back with a more powerful mentality, more violence, and I’m ready to cause even more destruction. My desire is to continue to be the best in the world.”
RUSH is set to defend the ROH World Title against Bandido at Best In The World on Sunday.
The ROH event will air live on pay-per-view and HonorClub at 7 pm ET, with Hour One airing free on multiple platforms.
