Independent Star and Two Women Being Signed to NXT and Are Now Training in the Performance Center

WWE signs Lio Rush

WWE has announced a blockbuster signing in the form of 22-year-old prodigy Lio Rush.

Internationally recognized as one of the ring’s top high-flyers, Rush officially joined the WWE Performance Center today in Orlando, Fla.

Born Lionel Gerard Green, of Lanham, Md., Rush wrestled in high school, becoming a two-time All-American and three-time state qualifier. He began training for sports-entertainment in 2014 and, in less than three years, has competed in 43 states, Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, Germany and Ireland. In 2016, he won Ring of Honor’s Top Prospect Tournament, and earlier this year, he held the Combat Zone Wrestling Heavyweight Championship.

The 160-pounder quickly became a fan favorite on the independent scene for his daredevil creativity and unbelievable resiliency, as well as his “Dragon’s Call” finisher, a devastating frog splash that recalls D’Lo Brown’s split-leg variation. In joining the WWE PC, Rush reunites with a former tag team partner, current NXT Superstar The Velveteen Dream, with whom Rush co-held the Maryland Championship Wrestling Tag Team Titles in 2015.


In addition to this news, WWE also has signed Kacy Catanzaro and Shadia Bseiso to contracts and are currently training at the Performance Center.

Kacy Catanzaro has a gymnastic background and also participates in obstacle course racing and has competed on American Ninja Warrior. She’s been training and working out with WWE Performance Center coach and former WCW star Norman Smiley.

Shadia Bseiso has an athletic background as she avidly trains in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and is currently a Blue Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.


Author’s Note: I know it’s very late, but awesome to see Lio Rush get signed. He’s going to do well in the company and the other women have potential, but we’ll see what they can do.
