WWE released nearly two dozen on-screen talent on April 15th. Each released Superstar could end up in another company, or on the indies. They all have their own journeys through the pro wrestling business, but Heath Slater’s road likely won’t take him to AEW.
During a recent Instagram Q&A, Cody Rhodes was asked about All Elite Wrestling picking up the One Man Band. Rhodes confirmed that AEW isn’t interested in Slater, baby.
“Nope! No on Heath Slater.”
Cody could always be throwing out a red herring. For all we know Tony Khan has an amazing idea for Heath Slater. You never know in the pro wrestling business, but Cody Rhodes is generally a straight-shooter and his honesty has gotten him in trouble in the past.
It’s not to say that AEW isn’t interested in any of the recently released WWE Superstars. Cody Rhodes said that Zack Ryder can get over again after WWE axed his old friend Matt Cardona. We’ll just have to see what’s in store for everyone in this situation.
