Lio Rush is the new AAA Cruiserweight Champion after defeating Laredo Kid on the latest edition on MLW Fusion.
The stakes were high in the thrilling interpromotional match as Lio’s MLW Middleweight Championship was also on the line. Rush picked after the win after hitting Laredo Kid with his finisher, the Final Hour frog splash.
Laredo Kid’s reign as AAA Cruiserweight Champ began back in February of last year when he defeated Sammy Guevara at Conquista Total.
Lio Rush parted ways with WWE back in April of 2020.
As we previously reported, the former NXT Cruiserweight Champion was released during a wave of layoffs as the company attempted to mitigate the financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Prior to his release, Rush spoke out in an interview saying he was uncomfortable wrestling during the pandemic.
