Lio Rush has returned to WWE, but he’s no longer Bobby Lashley’s mouthpiece … he’s back in NXT.

Rush’s first match in months went down during the first live episode of NXT. This took place during the second hour of the show which aired on WWE Network, not on USA. 

Lio faced-off against Oney Lorcan to determine the #1 contender to the Cruiserweight title and picked up the win to earn himself a match against Drew Gulak.

The 24-year-old wrestler was last seen on WWE TV in April. As you may recall, the wrestler vanished from WWE TV after publicly addressing reports of a possible dislike towards him in the locker room.

Watch a few clips of his return below.
