• Cody Rhodes Says AEW Isn’t Interested In Signing A Recently Released WWE Wrestler

WWE released a number of on-screen and backstage employees two weeks ago to make budget cuts due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.

Due to the mass release, speculation started that a number of those wrestlers could be signed by AEW.

However, the Executive Vice President of AEW, Cody Rhodes, confirmed that AEW obviously isn’t going to sign every released WWE talent. He straight up refused the idea of signing one wrestler during a Q/A session on Instagram Live.

A fan asked him if AEW was going to give Heath Slater a contract. He replied the following:

“Nope! No on Heath Slater.”

AEW could still be after some talent like Zack Ryder, The Revival and Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson, as previously reported.
