We have received word that ROH World Champion Rush was reportedly passed on by WWE. He was in negotiations with WWE to sign a deal but according to sources he was asking for “too much” and WWE chose not to go forward.
Reportedly, AAA kick-started the negotiations between Rush and WWE. WWE made the first offer, which was much lower than what Rush was looking for in a deal. Rush would go on to make his return to ROH at “Final Battle”. With Rush making his return, it’s believed that he has signed a new deal with Ring of Honor and will continue being their World Champion.
