When Lio Rush announced his retirement from professional wrestling, many fans predicted that, eventually, he would change his mind and return to the business.
But in a new tweet, Rush doubled down on his previous comments by explaining that he is comfortable with his decision.
“Before I head into my procedure today, I wanted to share something,” wrote Rush. “I’m content with what I’ve accomplished in my wrestling career. I’m happy that I made the decision that I’ve made. This wasn’t an easy one, but it was the right one. I started this wrestling journey at 17 years old and I sacrificed everything that I had to put me in the position that I am currently in today.”
Rush then described how he believes his decision to walk away from wrestling will help him and his family. He then thanked the fans for their support.
“To me, this is my 2nd chance to be the father that I’ve always wanted to be and the husband I’ve always wanted to be,” Rush continued. “I’ve been through a lot in my life. A lot unseen and a lot unheard. I have a story. A unique story and I hope to tell it one day at the right place, at the time time and in the right setting. I love you guys and I will miss you guys so much. Thank you for everything that you’ve done for me and my family.”
