Heath Slater has fired back at Cody Rhodes, telling “The American Nightmare” that not signing him to AEW would be “a bad business decision.”
During a Q&A on Instagram Live this Tuesday, Rhodes responded to a fan who asked if the company would be interested in Slater. Rhodes responded bluntly: “Nope, no on Heath Slater.”
Slater, who was part of the large group of WWE releases on April 15th, quoted a story about Rhodes’ comment and tweeted: “Damn!! NO. No on Heath?? I know you are a new business man but that was a bad business decision.”
AEW has become a natural landing spot for WWE cast-offs, most recently Luke Harper and likely The Revival as well. Heath Slater and his kids, however, seem like they’ll be forced to find another home.
