Lio Rush Responds to Mike Kanellis’s Deleted Tweet


After requesting his release, Mike Kanellis had addressed Lio Rush in a tweet that he later deleted. He mocked Rush for his time sitting at home.

Kanellis wrote, “You won 2 matches. Chill out. There’s an entire roster of Cruiserweights that we’re grinding and working their ass off for our Brand, while you were sitting at home for bad behavior. Let’s not act like you weren’t gift wrapped the cruiserweight championship.”

Rush responded to his deleted tweet, “You’re right, I was home. Reflecting on my past and how i can get better. Getting back on a positive road to become a champion literally and figuratively. Spending time with my children that are actually MINE. I get your anger…trust me. Win a match 1st. Maybe we can talk later.”

Lio Rush won the NXT Cruiserweight title on the most recent episode of NXT. The cruiserweight brand is slowly being integrated into NXT from the 205 Live brand. As of now, 205 Live will still air on Friday but the future of the brand is a mystery.

Mike Kanellis asked for his release today.
