Popular Mexican wrestler Rush has been forced to pull out of an upcoming MLW event after signing an exclusive contract with Ring of Honor.
Rush’s signing was announced on Tuesday with a video from the Los Ingobernables founding member in which he says ROH is his new home.
MLW confirmed shortly after that Rush had been pulled from his scheduled match against La Park during WrestleMania weekend and would be replaced by Pentagon Jr.
“With great reluctance Rush has been forced to withdraw from his April 4th match against LA Park,” MLW wrote. “Despite efforts by MLW, Rush was pulled due to the insistence of a third party promoter.”
MLW CEO Court Bauer added, “This is a match and organization Rush wanted to be a part of, but sometimes politics get in the way and that’s what this comes down to: politics.”
