On today's "Say Less," the crew is joined by Lio Rush. The well-traveled, but still young professional wrestler and musician has been on a wayward journey since he's blown up on the national stage as a grappler, and Kaz has had a front row seat to most of it. As a fan, and as a former co-worker, Lio speaks about his time in WWE as the mouth piece for current WWE megastar, Bobby Lashley, and the lessons he learned in the biggest sports-entertainment company in the world. Lio also opens up about why he felt that his personality might have not translated well to those backstage and how he tried to shake the labels placed on him due to his confidence. Lio talks about how creating music has given him the opportunity to express himself in ways outside of the ring and be able to tell a lot of his life story without the confines of the squared circle. Lio also speaks about his time in AEW and if he felt like he was utilized correctly, what's the biggest lessons he's learned since then, and what he would do differently. The grappling star also sticks around to talk music with us, gives us his own "personal classic albums," talks about the current landscape of music and who he's inspired by and where he feel he fits.
