Lio Rush is scheduled to compete at NJPW Resurgence. He’ll be a part of a ten-man tag match. Rush recently announced that he was medically cleared after suffering an AC joint separation during his AEW debut at Double Or Nothing.
Just days after his AEW debut, Rush put out a statement which noted that he is retiring from wrestling and after he wraps up the remainder of his New Japan dates, he will be stepping away from the ring permanently.
