Lio Rush was the mystery entrant, also called the “joker.”

He entered the match and caught Private Party and other competitors by surprise with his high-flying offense. But the former WWE star was eliminated by Matt Hardy to end his brief time in the battle royale.

Rush enjoyed plenty of success in WWE. He won the NXT Cruiserweight Championship during his run with the company.
