AEW wrestler Rush posted the following note on social media a short while ago, indicating that he will be out of action to recover after wrestling most of the Continental Classic tournament with a torn hamstring:
In the #AEWContinentalClassic I tore my hamstring in the second match I had.
I will recover and return ready and hungrier than ever for a fight.
Rush’s second match in the round-robin portion of the tournament was against Mark Briscoe on the Nov. 29 episode of Dynamite.
He went on to work three more singles matches in the Continental Classic after that one (against Jon Moxley, Jay Lethal, and Swerve Strickland), and he also competed in an all-star 8-man tag team match at the AEW Worlds End pay-per-view event on Dec. 30. Rush’s tournament match against Jay Lethal on the Dec. 13 Winter is Coming episode of Dynamite stood out for being the shortest match of the tourney.
Rush doesn’t mention how bad the hamstring tear is or how much time he might need to recover before he can return to action in AEW.
