WWEannounced on Monday that former Ring of Honor star Lio Rush has signed with the company and reported to the Performance Center as he's expected to join the NXT brand.

WNW Premium has been reporting for a few months now that Rush was WWE-bound. We also exclusively covered on August 4th that WWE started to have second thoughts about signing Rush because of his attitude. Here's an excerpt from our report:

There is some trepidation about Rush's attitude, with the feeling being that he isn't as open to critique and advice as WWE prefers, especially when dealing with young talent (Rush is only 22). WWE is very high on his physical skills and with Rush not being offered a big money deal, the feeling is that the company has little to lose if he doesn't adjust well to the intense WWE culture.
