Lio Rush recently sat down with Sports Illustrated, where the wrestling superstar discussed his career, including his musical endeavor, his six-month long sabbatical from WWE, and what his future goals in the ring might be.
Check out some of the highlights below:
On his musical endeavors:
Craved for Blood began during my time away from the WWE when my mind was in a tenuous space, all over the place, and that’s the vibe that created the song, I went through a negative place, and I worked to harness that and put it in the song.
The entire song is a code that people have to crack, A line that means a lot to me is, ‘These tricky minds deep inside, we all think alike.’ Every job has its stresses, and the entertainment field is stressful. People need to find a release. A creative outlet for me outside of wrestling is my music.
On his six-month sabbatical from WWE:
That moment was pretty special, My first run in NXT was so short, I only had a few matches. Some people were surprised I am a wrestler after they were only used to seeing me beside Bobby Lashley as a manager on Monday Night Raw. People know I can talk on the mic, but I want to show the world I can do it all. It’s special to be back wrestling, and I want to show I am one of the best wrestlers in the world
On his future goals:
My goal is to create a bigger name for myself, “I want to continue to show I’m a hard worker, I’m ready for whatever, I’m prepared for anything that comes my way.
