Before Heading To WWE, Lio Rush Looks To Make History At Shamrock Cup


By Kevin Eck, PressBox

Lio Rush has already accomplished so much in less than three years in pro wrestling, but the 22-year-old native of Lanham, Md., is just getting started.

He won the 2016 Ring of Honor Top Prospect Tournament and went on to be a member of ROH's roster for a year. He has also wrestled all over the world and won multiple championships. Now, the word is out that Rush recently was offered a contract by WWE, and his debut in NXT reportedly is imminent.

But beyond all that, Rush had perhaps his greatest moment as a pro wrestler during a Pro Wrestling Guerrilla show in Reseda, Calif., July 7. At that event, Rush got a photo with actress Danielle Fishel (Topanga from "Boy Meets World" and "Girl Meets World"), who apparently purchased one of his T-shirts at the show.
