Former AEW star claims AEW ‘he didn’t know what to do’

Original AEW Star Teasing Departure From Company?



Former AEW star Leo Rush has said that the company did not know what to do with him, and suggested that Tony Khan see him as a manager.

Rush’s contract with AEW expired on February 14, 2022, and he has since returned to the independent circuit.

Since leaving AEW, Rush has wrestled in MLW, GCW and RevPro, among others.

Recently in an interview with say less podcastRush was asked if he believed AEW knew how to make the best use of him during his time there.

he said:

“Of course not. When I say things, I don’t want to say it was breaking news because I think those things are so blatantly obvious.

“It’s like, yanno, he verbally made it clear to me that he was in WWE when he was my fan and I was doing manager stuff with Bobby [Lashley],

“If he saw me like this, that’s the only light he sees in me… [then] he is [probably what] That’s going to transfer me to that kind of role. Which I am not, ie…

“I’m so grateful for that time period [in WWE] Because it taught me to talk, it taught me to present myself and build up to others.

“No, I don’t think [they] Knew exactly what to do with me. It’s always a frustrating thing, but like you said when [I] Say stuff it just gets f*cking blown up.”

Rush’s departure came shortly after apologizing to Tony Khan about a tweet Khan had made about AEW’s departure on New Year’s Eve, 2021.
