The La Faccion Ingobernable star injured his knee at ROH Glory By Honor Night Two, and he was subsequently pulled from the card for the promotion’s Death Before Dishonor event on September 12.
The official announcement from the ROH website is as follows:
RUSH will be out of action for the rest of 2021 after undergoing knee surgery.
The two-time former ROH World Champion suffered the injury at Glory By Honor on Aug. 21 during the tag team match pitting him and Dragon Lee against ROH World Champion Bandido and Rey Horus.
RUSH was scheduled to team with Lee and Kenny King against ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Champions Shane Taylor Promotions at the Death Before Dishonor pay-per-view on Sept. 12 in Philadelphia. RUSH’s father, Bestia del Ring, will replace him in the title match.
On this weekend’s episode of Ring of Honor Wrestling, La Facción Ingobernable (RUSH, Lee, Bestia and Kenny King) faces STP (Taylor, Moses and Kaun of Soldiers of Savagery and O’Shay Edwards) in an eight-man tag match taped prior to Glory By Honor.
