As we noted back in August, Lio Rush will be a part of MTV’s “The Challenge.”
The news was confirmed by People. The show, which is subtitled “Double Agents” was filmed in Iceland and will premiere on Dec. 9. Rush is one of nine first-time competitors and will look to earn his share of $1 million in the competition. Back in August, popular “The Challenge” spoiler account GamerVev reported that the former WWE superstar would be part of Season 36’s cast. The MTV reality game show has been airing since 1998 and features reality show celebrities competing in challenges to win a cash prize.
Rush is currently wrestling for Major League Wrestling after a brief hiatus after being released by WWE.
