SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
-Lio Rush, who signed with WWE with several skeptics in the company believing he wouldn’t last long with the company due to his attitude, has straightened himself out after a rocky start at the WWE Performance Center according to PWTorch sources. One source says that Rush has recently learned that growing as a performer is a process and he has embraced that as part of his training.
Donovan Dijak, who also had his fair share of critics behind the scenes in WWE before he signed with the company, has fit in better than expected. The biggest issue people behind the scenes had with Dijak behind the scenes was that he refused to listen to advice and was something of a “know it all” when it came to putting matches together. One source tells PWTorch that Dijak has been “great” while training at the WWE Performance Center. William Regal pushed for Triple H to sign both Rush and Dijak.
