You’re a legit contender here in ROH and pro wrestling all over the world.”</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';">It’s hard to argue with White’s assessment. Despite Rush’s 5-foot-6, 160-pound frame, the 21-year-old high-flyer has accomplished more in the first half of 2016 than a lot of his peers will in their entire careers.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';">This past Saturday, Rush added two more impressive achievements to his ever-expanding resume.&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';">On the Aftershock tour at Philadelphia’s famed 2300 Arena, Rush scored his biggest victory to date in ROH, as he defeated 2015 Top Prospect Tournament winner Donovan Dijak, who outweighs Rush by more than a hundred pounds and is over a foot taller.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';">Rush’s evening was just getting started, however. After his match with the hard-hitting Dijak, Rush traveled 90 miles to Baltimore to compete in the Shamrock Cup, one of the premier tournaments on the independent circuit.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';">Rush pinned current WWE/NXT star and former ROH World Television Champion Tommaso Ciampa in a six-way elimination match to become the first back-to-back Shamrock Cup winner in the 15-year history of a tournament. Past Shamrock Cup participants include Adam Cole, Jay Briscoe, Christopher Daniels, Chris Sabin, Eddie Edwards, Jerry Lynn and Claudio Castagnoli.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';">“I knew that going against Dijak and then doing Shamrock Cup was going to be tough, but I just did what I’ve been doing, and that’s showing everyone that it’s my time,” Rush said.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';">Rush has been dazzling fans all over the U.S. as well as Mexico and Canada ever since making his debut in October 2014 after just four months of training at the MCW Pro Wrestling Training Center in Baltimore.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';">Last month in Mexico, Rush competed in the Campeonato Mundial Elite tournament. He lost a hard-fought quarterfinal match to powerhouse Michael Elgin, a former ROH World Champion and current star in New Japan Pro-Wrestling.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';">“My match with Michael Elgin was very hard-hitting,” Rush said. “It was a huge test for me. I took a lot of hard falls in that match but I also gave Elgin the fight of his life despite my size.”</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';">Facing a competitor of Elgin’s caliber on a big stage was nothing new for Rush. After all, he found himself standing across the ring from the No. 1 wrestler in the world with the richest prize in pro wrestling at stake less than two months after winning the Top Prospect Tournament.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';">Rush had earned a shot at the ROH World Television Title for coming out on top in the TPT, but when then-champion Tomohiro Ishii was unable to immediately defend the title due to his commitments with NJPW, ROH Matchmaker Nigel McGuinness granted Rush a shot at ROH World Champion Jay Lethal at Supercard of Honor X in April.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';">Rush came within an eyelash of pulling off the upset before Lethal ultimately retained his title.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';">“Wrestling Jay Lethal for the Ring of Honor World Title was one of the most motivating things I’ve ever done in my life,” Rush said. “I knew that no matter what the outcome was that I was going to put my name on the radar of ROH fans and show everybody exactly who Lio Rush is.”</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';">Rush may not have won the match, but he certainly won-over the world champion.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';">“To earn Jay Lethal’s respect meant the world to me,” Rush said. “When he shook my hand and told me that one day I might be even greater than him was an unbelievable feeling.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';">In addition his matches against Lethal and Elgin, Rush has also competed against elite wrestlers such as Cole and Roderick Strong in ROH.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';">While he has yet to defeat any of them, Rush more than held his own against all of them, and he knows it’s just a matter of time before he scores a breakthrough victory that gets him to the next level.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';">All of Rush’s future opponents, regardless of how much bigger, more experienced or more decorated they are than him, would be wise not to underestimate him.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';">“Losing has never been a setback for me. It has always been motivation,” he said. “Wrestling some of the best wrestlers in the world has showed me how far I’ve come in my training.

ROH’s history in Philadelphia goes back to the 2002 debut event at the Murphy Rec Center and another great chapter in ROH and Philly history was written with a National TV Taping on the “Aftershock” Tour at the 2300 Arena.</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;"><span style="font-kerning: none">&nbsp;</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;"><span style="font-kerning: none">Here are my thoughts from the best seat in the house, my “View From Ringside”.</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;"><span style="font-kerning: none">&nbsp;</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;"><span style="font-kerning: none">ROH World Champion Jay Lethal is the best wrestler in the world and he brings out the best from each and every opponent he faces. His match against Colt Cabana proved both points and hats off to Cabana for maintaining a standard of personal excellence second to none. I don’t think Colt gets the credit he deserves for how good he is and how good he can become. Yes, even at this stage of his career, Colt Cabana looks for areas of improvement and I believe that is one reason he is so great. Cabana never settles on what he’s accomplished and he is always looking for new innovations to step up his game.</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;"><span style="font-kerning: none">&nbsp;</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;"><span style="font-kerning: none">The ROH World Tag Team Champions (of the World), the Addiction also showed me and everyone in attendance that just when you have the answers, they change the questions. Cool under pressure and two steps ahead of their competition perfectly sum up why Daniels and Kazarian are so good. But the challengers before them in the weeks to come will require the Addiction to battle the odds and very worthy challengers. At “Death Before Dishonor”, they can lose the titles to either Hiroshi Tanahashi and Michael Elgin or the “Los Ingobernables” team of Tetsuya Naito and Evil without factoring in the decision, which is how they lost the titles in October 2015. The Motor City Machine Guns, War Machine and the Young Bucks all wait in the wings for their shots against the winners.</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;"><span style="font-kerning: none">&nbsp;</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;"><span style="font-kerning: none">History was made in Philadelphia when Stuka Jr. became the first CMLL (Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre) star to compete in ROH.
