23-year-old NXT phenom Lio Rush will be making his main roster debut as part of 205 Live.
A promo for Rush was shown during last night’s cruiserweight showcase on WWE Network. Rush has been part of the WWE development system since the middle of 2017.
Most recently, Rush has been working NXT events alongside the much larger Babatunde — who appeared as part of the Greatest Royal Rumble event.
Rush has been used sparingly on NXT TV since tweeting a joke about Emma‘s release in October 2017. While officials may have held him back for a little bit, it’s clear they believe he has a bright future.
In case you missed it, Rush dropped a music video last month for his debut rap song.
