Tony Khan issues statement on Lio Rush’s retirement announcement

Lio Rush announced on social media that he will be retiring from professional wrestling. Aside from some final commitments with New Japan Pro Wrestling, he intends on stepping into the ring because of an injury. Rush noted in his statement that AEW still offered him a contract even though they knew he was injured during the Casino Battle Royale at Double Or Nothing.

Khan issued the following statement:

“Lio Rush reached out to me today, and he shared that he’d planned to announce his retirement from pro wrestling tonight. While this news was unexpected, I’m glad that he’s made a choice that he’s confident will make him and his family happy.

Lio is a great talent, and I enjoyed briefly working with him, and I absolutely wish him the best.

Tony Khan President & CEO, All Elite Wrestling”
