Lio Rush is “p*ssed” at AEW President Tony Khan

Last updated

AEW star Lio Rush recently took to social media to react to comments that Tony Khan made after the release of Big Swole from the company.

Swole was interviewed about her reasons for leaving, and she indicated that a lack of diversity was part of the reason for her to go.

Khan responded to the comments, saying “The top 2 @AEW execs are brown (me & Megha)!! Jade, Bowens, Caster, Dante, Nyla, Isiah & Marq Quen all won on tv this month.

“The TBS Title Tournament has been very diverse. I let Swole’s contract expire as I felt her wrestling wasn’t good enough. #AEWRampage Street Fight TONIGHT!”

Lio Rush would take to Twitter upset over the comments from the AEW President, writing ’If nobody says something, then I will. Because this is f**ked up and now I’m pissed. APOLOGIZE. @TonyKhan @AEW’
