AEW President Tony Khan is looking to keep talent under contract for the long haul.
RUSH confirmed on Monday in a post on social media that he had re-signed with AEW amidst reports of WWE being interested in the former ROH World Champion.
Rush has been away from AEW TV for the last two months. He last competed on the May 24th episode of AEW Rampage when he teamed Preston Vance and Dralistico against Billy Gunn and The Acclaimed.
While speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted AEW is trying to sign talent to longer deals, and RUSH, who had been under a one-year deal, is an example of that.
“Yep, they made the better offer, and he resigned. I don’t know how long the terms are, but I know AEW is trying to sign people for multi years. He got a one-year deal his first time. Because he insisted on it because he wanted to prove himself. There was whether they used him, he’s an interesting character because when he wants to go, I mean like his match with Brian Danielson was, was fantastic. He had a great match with John Moxley. Like when you put him in a singles match, he’s very aggressive. He hits hard and all that, but it’s like he’s not been positioned to where people see him as a superstar or anything like that. And he still kind of does his own thing.”
