Rui was a dangerous opponent that Tanjiro and Nezuko were barely able to defeat, but he wasn't at full strength when they fought. Supposedly, he's more than powerful enough to take on a Hashira, but he weakened himself severely by sharing his power with his "family."
This seems to be a permanent loss, since when those spiders were brought down, Rui did not become any stronger.
