After undergoing surgery, former ROH World Champion Rush will be out of action for the remainder of the year.

ROH announced on Wednesday that, due to undergoing knee surgery, Rush will be out of action for the rest of 2021. Rush suffered the injury while teaming with Dragon Lee against Bandido & Rey Horus at Glory By Honor night two on August 21.

Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio over the weekend that Rush's contract with ROH is set to expire at the end of this year.

A message posted on Rush's social media accounts yesterday confirmed that he had undergone surgery. It was stated that further details will be revealed at a press conference next Thursday.

Rush lost the ROH World Championship to Bandido at Best in the World this July.

La Faccion Ingobernable's Rush, Dragon Lee & Kenny King were set to challenge Shane Taylor Promotions (Shane Taylor, Moses & Kaun) for the ROH Six-Man Tag Team titles at Death Before Dishonor on Sunday, September 12. Rush's father Bestia del Ring will be replacing him in the match.

Rush, Dragon Lee, King & Bestia del Ring vs. Taylor, Moses, Kaun & O'Shay Edwards will still air on the ROH TV episode that premieres this Saturday. The eight-man tag match was taped prior to Rush's injury.
