What's the story?

WWE Superstar Lio Rush has been posting a string of videos on his official Youtube channel over the past week, which has raised questions on whether he is done with the company.

His latest videos feature him saying that it's time he stopped being a nice guy, and stop playing by the rules

In case you didn't know...

It has been around two months since Lio Rush disappeared from WWE TV without any explanation. Later, it was reported that Rush had serious backstage heat, and apparently had attitude issues. Further, it was suggested that Rush had disrespected a bunch of WWE veterans, which became evident when WWE Hall of Famer Mark Henry slammed him on an edition of SiriusXM’s Busted Open. Henry stated that he had asked Lio whether there was a problem, to which he responded by saying that everything was fine. Henry added that Rush lied to his face, and it certainly didn't sit well with him.

Later, Rush removed all WWE references from his social media handles, and replaced them with booking inquiry links.

The heart of the matter

Recently, Rush posted three cryptic videos on Youtube, simply named One, Two, and Three. The first video references Lio's "Man of the Hour" nickname. The second clip shows him pondering on the idea to stop playing by the rules and realizing that the only thing that matters is Lio himself.

It's time. I think maybe it's time that I stop playing by the rules, that I stop being Mr. Nice Guy. That I start taking things that I want and not waiting for the right time, because time doesn't really matter. The only thing that matters is me.

The final video gets even darker, with Rush stating that maybe he has already made a choice.

What's next?

The video series has led to speculation among fans on whether Lio Rush is off to look for greener pastures. We'll keep you updated on this story as it develops further.
