Rush will be joined current PROGRESS Champion Cara Noir, Eddie Kingston, Lucky Kid and Mike Bailey among others to compete in the 3-day single elimination tournament.
Rush is not the only familiar face from NXT to appear on the show. Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic participant Alex Shelley is booked for Day 2 of the event.
The No. 14 and 15 spot in the tournament were won by The Rotation and Julian Pace as both won a mini tournament at a live event respectively.
The final spot will be announced later this weekend.
