Pertaining to AEW’s announced roster so far, AEW Executive Vice President Cody Rhodes addressed a fan’s concern. Rhodes says they have only revealed about 40% of their actual roster and encouraged people to be patient.
We’ve revealed about 40% of the roster. Sometimes it’s better to let the painter paint and then judge the picture.
