This weekend was big for former ROH stars who are currently under contract with WWE. Kyle O’Reilly and Bobby Fish sent a message to the NXT tag team division Saturday night at NXT Takeover: Brooklyn III, but the big surprise came after the main event when Fish and O’Reilly teamed up with Adam Cole to attack new NXT Champion Drew McIntyre.

Sunday night at SummerSlam, former ROH star Seth Rollins won the Raw Tag Team Titles with Dean Ambrose, Kevin Owens and AJ Styles fought over the US Title in a match which featured Shane McMahon as the referee, and Samoa Joe challenged for the Universal Title in the main event of the show.

Now another former ROH star has signed with the company, as WWE has confirmed they’ve signed Lio Rush. The following announcement was posted on WWE.com:

WWE has announced a blockbuster signing in the form of 22-year-old prodigy Lio Rush.

Internationally recognized as one of the ring’s top high-flyers, Rush officially joined the WWE Performance Center today in Orlando, Fla.

Born Lionel Gerard Green, of Lanham, Md., Rush wrestled in high school, becoming a two-time All-American and three-time state qualifier. He began training for sports-entertainment in 2014 and, in less than three years, has competed in 43 states, Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, Germany and Ireland. In 2016, he won Ring of Honor’s Top Prospect Tournament, and earlier this year, he held the Combat Zone Wrestling Heavyweight Championship.

The 160-pounder quickly became a fan favorite on the independent scene for his daredevil creativity and unbelievable resiliency, as well as his “Dragon’s Call” finisher, a devastating frog splash that recalls D’Lo Brown’s split-leg variation. In joining the WWE PC, Rush reunites with a former tag team partner, current NXT Superstar The Velveteen Dream, with whom Rush co-held the Maryland Championship Wrestling Tag Team Titles in 2015.
