NXT Cruiserweight Champion
Lio Rush: Bio
Lio Rush makes the impossible possible. Combining blistering speed with breathtaking ingenuity, The Man of the Hour seems to defy physics whenever he enters the ring.
An All-American wrestler in high school, Rush began training for sports-entertainment while still a teenager. By the time he signed with NXT at age 22, the daredevil had produced enough GIF-worthy highlights inside the ring to become the talk of the independent wrestling community.
Rush has fire in his belly, a gas tank that never runs low and the resiliency of an elastic band. Though he rarely possesses a size advantage, the risk-taking marvel uses his 160-pound frame to form an unfathomable assault from all angles.
Regardless of whatever speed bumps he encounters, be sure to set an alarm for The Man of the Hour because whenever Lio Rush is in action, it’s appointment viewing.
