How is AEW Lio Rush has found herself in a manager/mentor role since signing full-time with All Elite Wrestling. He is currently cornering promising young Dante Martin and guiding him through Tony Khan’s promotion.
Martin, who is one half of the “Top Flight” tag team, finds himself in a singles role throughout 2021 when his tag teammate and brother Darius are fatally injured by most of the year.
Dante Martin has won the hearts and minds of the crowds throughout the year with his unmatched aerial attack and fitness, blending it in the ring with the likes of MJF, Miro and Elite.
At the end of 2021, Rush is paired with him as an instructor. Now, in an interview with Denise Salcedo for “Instinct Culture,” Rush has revealed how the pair come together, before heaping praise on the youngster.
“He’s an incredible athlete and very avid and very motivated and he reminds me a lot of me when I was trying to make a name for myself on the indie circuit. You know, luck. luckily for him we now have AEW, this huge platform is a secondary option where people can come and make their name and be on TV and really succeed in the sport.” , said Lio Rush (H / T Culture Instinct).
When talking about how the idea took shape, Rush revealed that it was none other than Tony Khan himself, who thought the pairing would work.
“I think he saw a lot of potential in Dante Martin that everyone has, he’s an incredible athlete with a lot of potential to be a star in pro wrestling and in AEW. You know, Tony feels that I can support and help him make that happen.. my history as an on-screen manager and having the commercials and skills that I have, bro. She feels like I’ve added value to what Dante I guess is missing.” (H / T .) Culture Instinct).
