Rush is now under a full-time deal with AEW.

In a tweet on Friday, Tony Khan officially announced that Rush has signed a full-time AEW contract. Rush had been on a per-appearance deal since making his AEW debut at Double or Nothing this May.

Khan wrote: "It’s official: @rushtoroblanco is All Elite! What a week for Rush! Yesterday was his birthday, today he’s All Elite, and it’s Rush vs [John Silver] TONIGHT on Friday Night #AEWRampage! Don’t miss Friday Night #AEWRampage on @TNTdrama @ 10pm ET/9pm CT TONIGHT!"

Andrade El Idolo had posted a tweet on Thursday wishing Rush a happy birthday and congratulating Rush on his new contract.

Rush debuted for AEW in a taped segment at Double or Nothing. His first match for AEW then took place in June.

La Faccion Ingobernable (Rush, his brother Dragon Lee & Andrade El Idolo) took part in AEW's Trios title tournament this summer. They lost to The Elite (Kenny Omega & The Young Bucks) in the first round.

Rush has previously been a star for ROH and CMLL, including holding the ROH World Championship two times.
