Lio Rush’s time at WWE, and especially his pre-hiatus run on the main roster, was marked by controversy. After his 2020 release, those issues led to a public beef with Mark Henry (a beef Rush said was squashed when they both appeared at AEW’s May 30 Double or Nothing show).
But Henry wasn’t the only person Lio had heat with from his WWE days, and apparently announcer Greg Hamilton was one of the others. When Rush posted his retirement message last night (June 8), Hamilton tweeted and deleted a “don’t let the door hit ya where the good lord split ya” kind of response:
But with some time to reflect, Hamilton posted a new message, directly tagging Rush on Instagram and tweeting out a screenshot of his comment there:
I can admit when I’m wrong….and I was wrong.
We don’t have to see eye to eye backstage; but Lionel Green (Lio Rush) is an incredible father as well as a talent. I have all the respect in the world for that. No one made me type this. Just owning my mistakes. He’ll be missed. pic.twitter.com/mwhOT1GtHt
