“I realized just how much this would affect my everyday life. For anyone who knows me, you know that i work endlessly for me and my family. It became more and more frustrating everyday finding little things that i could no longer do. Like simply putting on a shirt and a much harder fact to deal with, not being able to pick up my newborn son…”
Rush added that he may have to fulfil his contractual obligations with NJPW once he is healed. Once that’s over, he will be completely done with the business.
This isn’t his first retirement from wrestling. Rush announced his pro-wrestling retirement last year after he was released from WWE. Time will tell if this is truly the last fans have seen of him. Regardless, we wish Lio Rush all the very best for all his future endeavors.
