In an update on Lio Rush appearing in the Casino Battle Royale during last night’s AEW Double or Nothing pay-per-view, All Elite Wrestling President Tony Khan noted that Rush is currently working with the company on a handshake agreement.

“I haven’t got pen to paper, but Lio and I have a handshake where he can work here and New Japan Pro Wrestling. He wanted to keep working here and I think we’ve worked something good out on a handshake, I think he has a handshake with New Japan too and that’s what we’ve been doing and it’s been pretty good. I think it’s a good way to work, so far, so good.”
