In case you didn't know...

Lio Rush was signed by the WWE back in August 2017. Rush's speed and intensity were spotlighted in his NXT debut when he took on his former tag team partner, Velveteen Dream. It looked as if he would be working his way into some sort of feud with Dream, but a poorly timed joke would put him in hot water, keeping him off of NXT events until late November.

Rush made his return to NXT TV in January, only to be crushed by Lars Sullivan. Since then, he's rarely been seen in a ring.

The heart of the matter

On the June 5th episode of 205 Live, a vignette played of Lio Rush. The NXT Superstar told the WWE Universe that he would be making the jump to 205 Live. He warned the cruiserweight roster that they will soon feel the rush.

What's next?

It's unknown when Rush will make his 205 Live debuts, but Drake Maverick's newest signing will turn heads. And with no clear #1 contender for Cedric Alexander's Cruiserweight Championship, maybe the M.O.T.H. can make his mark on his new brand by ending the Age of Alexander.

Until then, Lio Rush will continue to promote his latest single with his longtime friend DRETT1 titled "Money Money." You can check out the song here.

Rush is one of the most exciting wrestlers in the world. His speed is virtually unmatched, and 205 Live is a great fit for him. Are you excited to see Lio Rush join the cruiserweights? Who do you want to see him feud with first? Let us know below.
