AEW stars Rush and Jose The Assistant have been suspended from All Elite Wrestling action for a week following their post-match attack on a referee at ROH Final Battle on Saturday.
The former ROH World Champion teamed up with Dralistico in the pay-per-view's opener against fellow AEW new arrival AR Fox and Blake Christian. Fox nailed a 450 splash on Dralistico to get the victory, both appeared as though Dralistico kicked out. He and Rush attacked Fox and Christian after the bell in a fury over the finish, then Rush attacked the official afterwards.
The men raged in a backstage interview about their plight, confirming that AEW had taken action over. As Jose The Assistant tweeted after the fact;
RUSH “assaulted” a Referee...We got fined $$ for using chairs...We’ve been SUSPENDED for a week by #AEW...Preston didn’t get too involved and isn’t suspended...You can’t fool the fans, they know the match ending was BULLSH*T.
