For what it’s worth, multiple sources have confirmed to eWrestlingNews.com that Rush is said to have a “massive ego” and “rubs people the wrong way.” He’s also been known to go “off script” during matches so that he can get all his spots in. That likely has a lot to do with all the criticism of him over his tweet.
