On a recent Instagram Q&A, Cody mentioned All Elite Wrestling is not interested in signing Heath Slater. Slater was, of course, one of the many people who lost their jobs with WWE two weeks ago.
This did not sit well with Slater who responded to the news on Twitter.

“Damn!! NO. Nope on Heath?? I know you are a new business man but that was a bad business decision. @CodyRhodes”
Cody and others at AEW have said they are not interested in signing every released WWE star. The two most recent people they have signed have been Brodie Lee and Matt Hardy, who have been appearing regularly on Dynamite since.
It is currently unclear what Slater will do next. In a reaction video following his release, he mentioned he was hungry again after being burnt out in WWE. There is very little wrestling happening in the world right now due to the pandemic and Slater must wait out his 90-day no-compete clause. When this is over there will undoubtedly be somewhere looking to sign the One Man Rock Band.
Slater was a former three-time Tag Team Champion in WWE.
