Lio Rush may be known as The Man of the Hour, but there's no doubt that he could also be described as the man whose name has been on everyone's lips over the past few months.
Well, we managed to catch up with the man himself to speak all about his new single, his WWE run, and what's next on our brand new show Dropkick DiSKussions - which you can catch below.

Hi, Lio! Thanks for joining us. First of all, we have to talk about your new single Scenic Lullaby! That came right out of the blue, at least for myself anyway. Is that something you'd been planning for a while, or was it just something that you decided, spur of the moment, to put out there?
It was something that I definitely wanted to put out as a project. I didn't know what exactly I wanted to do with it or when I wanted to put it out, but I've always written poetry, and this was right, I felt like I needed to express what I was gone through, or what I've gone through in my life. That's how it came about, but it's something I'd written a while ago and just recently I was like, "Do you know what? Maybe I should put this out."
Is this a one-off, or can we expect another single, an EP, maybe even an album?
Oh, definitely! Eventually, I will put out more music - especially with the reaction and the responses that I've been getting over the last couple of days, which have been super overwhelming, but in a good way. The responses have been positive. I'm glad that everybody is enjoying it and, yeah, I definitely want to put out more. I feel like this is something that I was meant to do - as well as wrestling - because I come from a musical family, so it's cool to step into the music industry.
