Ring of Honor will look into locking up one of its biggest stars to a new deal and that’s RUSH. The former ROH World Heavyweight Champion had surgery in August to fix a knee injury and will be on the sidelines for the rest of the year as his return timetable is 8 months.
While Speaking to Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, RUSH discussed his upcoming free agency.
“My contract expires in January. So far, we have not talked about a contract renewal. I am very grateful to ROH. I am also a man of challenges and goals, and I’m open to listening to everyone,”
RUSH also talked about the choice he made on going ahead with his knee surgery.
It was the most difficult decision of my career when I heard the doctor tell me that if I didn’t have surgery in a few years, there is a possibility I would make my situation worse and worse over time. So even though I did not want surgery, it is best for me. It is eight months out [of action], which pains me, but my knee will be 100%. That’s why I opted for surgery.
Although not confirmed, it’s very likely that AEW and WWE would be interested in someone who has such talent as RUSH. It will be interesting to see where RUSH will end up.
