AEW has announced on the most recent episode of Being The Elite that Orange Cassidy has signed with the company. It was also announced that the first match on episode 2 on TNT will be Young Bucks vs Private Party.
Cody Rhodes had an online exchange with a fan about how AEW has only revealed about 40% of their signed roster so far. He stated the following after being told they lost out on signing Goldberg:
“We want/have modern wrestlers. Big ones at that. No disrespect intended to the heritage and those who paved the road. 2019. We’ve revealed about 40% of the roster. Sometimes it’s better to let the painter paint and then judge the picture.”
QD – The more I see from AEW and Cody Rhodes the more in awe I’m in. Not only did he learn at his father’s knee, he learned so much of what not to do in the WWE and tucked it all away for future use. I’m in awe of Cody and all he’s accomplished and changed in the wrestling industry.
