Lio Rush was taken to the ER after suffering an injury at tonight’s PWG Battle of Los Angeles event.
In a second round match, Rush defeated Buddy Matthews by disqualification, a rarity in PWG. The finish had Matthews laying out Rush with a curb stomp, and as the referee checked on Rush, Matthews continued to attack until the match was called off.
Rush wrote on Twitter that he wasn’t good right now, but will be back.
“Just being honest with you guys here. I’m not good,” he wrote. “But i will be good. And when I’m back, I’ll be dangerous. #ManOfTheHour.”
Later in the show, Matthews arrived for the semifinal match and told the crowd that Rush was taken to the ER and was unable to compete in the tournament, and that he would be taking Rush’s place. Matthews then quickly lost to Speedball Mike Bailey, who advanced to the finals before losing to this year’s tournament winner, Daniel Garcia.
