In the dynamic world of professional wrestling, alliances are formed, rivalries are ignited, and stars are born. One such star, Rush, has recently caught the eye of wrestling legend CM Punk.
Punk, a prominent figure in All Elite Wrestling (AEW), has expressed his desire for Rush to join the ranks of AEW Collision.
CM Punk: Push for Rush
Rush, a hard-hitting sensation in the wrestling world, has recently signed a new deal with AEW. This news has been met with enthusiasm, particularly from CM Punk.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Punk has been actively advocating for Rush to become a part of AEW Collision.
Punk’s support for Rush was made public when he took to Instagram to call Rush a “Collider,” indicating his belief in Rush’s potential to make a significant impact on the show.

The Allure of AEW
Rush’s decision to stay with AEW was not without its challenges. Reports suggest that he was offered “ins*ne money” to remain with Tony Khan’s promotion.
This lucrative offer was a significant factor in WWE’s decision not to make an official offer for the former ROH World Champion.
Multiple sources have confirmed that WWE had shown interest in bringing Rush into NXT. However, they realized they would have to offer him a deal larger than anyone else on the brand, except Gable Stevenson, due to the money he’d be offered to stay with AEW.

A New Chapter for Rush
Despite the tempting offers and interest from other promotions, Rush has remained loyal to AEW. Currently, he is “100% AEW,” and it seems there could be a spot for him on Saturday nights as he embarks on this new chapter in his wrestling journey.
This move could potentially be a game-changer for both Rush and AEW Collision.
