“Tony is a great guy. It played a big role in me wanting to be at AEW too. I didn’t want another boss like Vince. [McMahon]. I didn’t need another boss like Hunter [Triple H]. People have different opinions about Hunter, but we always raise our heads for different reasons. I didn’t feel that way with Tony. I was very attached to him and felt like a relative. I felt like he was taking care of the kids in the back. He felt hungry, driven, and eager. I liked his energy and I deal with energy in everything. I just knew it was right. Doing with me what I do during an injury; When I knew who I was and why I was doing it, where I was going, and who I was doing it for, I saw an opportunity to do something bigger than struggle. I will continue to say it and say it in a positive way. I’m not saying the fight will be left behind, but I’m trying to reach a larger audience than the fight. I didn’t miss the opportunity. Having learned what I have learned in the past, my own experience and all my accomplishments and everything, I now, in this moment, have the keys to success. Now I know what to do. ”
Rush also talked about his business relationship with Tony Khan. He talked about his ability to talk to Khan in real life. According to him, Khan felt needed.
Faced with mental health problems, Rush found it much easier for him to resolve his open relationship with Tony. They are connected at both the business level and the personal level.
“I remember flying from Florida to Los Angeles, talking to Tony, it’s about events in my life. He knows me, I know him. It was the first time we met at Double or Nothing. The point was to be ruthlessly honest with me and let him know how much he really wanted me at the AEW. I thought it was great. It was the main thing for me. I think everyone who is released will be the same. At the time, we felt useless and like rubbish. I didn’t want to sign anywhere if I didn’t want to. I wanted to feel like I was the company’s precious asset, and he convinced me of all that. saw the show, saw me and told me I was more attached to that show than anyone else. It meant the world to me. It was great. He told me the game I played and what I did, so he does not lie I know. “
