Lio Rush to debut on WWE 205 Live next week

Lio Rush will be making his main roster debut next week.

After two weeks of hype videos, WWE announced last night that Rush will be wrestling on 205 Live for the first time next Tuesday. The 23-year-old Rush's character has been presented as arrogant in the pre-debut videos, mentioning that he was disrespected by not being included in the Cruiserweight Classic or the Cruiserweight Championship tournament that culminated at WrestleMania 34.

Rush joined WWE in 2017 and had been wrestling in NXT since, including losing a couple of matches on television. He was involved in some controversy last October for tweeting "I guess these are the things that happen when you're not TRULY ready for @WWEAsuka" after Emma was released, referencing the program Emma had with Asuka right before that.

The Lucha House Party (Kalisto, Gran Metalik & Lince Dorado) vs. Drew Gulak, Brian Kendrick & Jack Gallagher in an elimination tag team match has also been announced for next week's 205 Live. The show -- and next week's SmackDown -- is taking place at the Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, California.
