Rush Confirms Injury: ‘I Will Recover And Return Ready’

The AEW Continental Classic played out through the month of December and culminated at Worlds End at the end of the month. The finals saw Eddie Kingston defeat Jon Moxley to become the first-ever AEW Continental Classic Triple Crown Champion, but the tournament was not short on high-end action. One of the athletes who routinely competed in some of the tournament’s best matches was Rush, who picked up wins over Jay Lethal and Mark Briscoe.

Just now, on social media, Rush shared the following bad news to fans regarding damage done to his body while competing in the inaugural tournament.

“In the #AEWContinentalClassic I tore my hamstring in the second match I had,” he wrote. “I will recover and return ready and hungrier than ever for a fight. #LFI #AEWDynamite

Rush’s second AEW Continental Classic match took place on the November 29 episode of AEW Dynamite, where he defeated Briscoe. Based on the timeline he provided, he continued to work on the tear for around a month after he says it took place, competing in four matches.

If it is a partial hamstring tear, Rush could only be out for a few weeks. If it is a complete tear, it could take longer, possibly a few months.

Haus of Wrestling sends its best to Rush as he begins his road to rehabilitation.
