Is Rush Preparing To Leave AEW For WWE?

Signing a wrestler to a contract is one thing. Keeping them happy enough to re-sign is a whole another challenge.

Typically, AEW likes to sign their talent to three year contracts, with an option to keep them around for another two years. The latest AEW wrestler who could be leaving in the near future is Rush.

In the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, they noted where Rush lands is still being decided. It does seem like AEW and WWE are the only real options. This would remove Impact Wrestling and NJPW from the conversation.

The 34 year old is a former ROH World Champion and recently departed AAA. He spent several years for the promotion.
