Earlier this week, RUSH was pulled from the ROH Death Before Dishonor card; he was scheduled to challenge for the ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Championship alongside Kenny King and Dragon Lee, but La Bestia del Ring will take RUSH’s place in this bout.
RUSH previously had knee surgery this past May.
Update: in a tweet, RUSH’s wife made it clear that the family will share some news in the press conference.
The tweet, via a translation service, is as follows:
“This short message is to thank my husband RUSH for showing his affection and good wishes after his operation. Next Thursday, in the press conference that we are going to offer, we will give you more details about his state of health and we will reveal some news.”
