- Lance Storm gave his thoughts on fans arguing for or against WWE and AEW. On Twitter he wrote, "So odd hearing pro-AEW/anti-WWE people fight with pro-WWE/anti-AEW people. I don't care which you like, but unless you're an idiot you should want BOTH to succeed and flourish."

"Ladies and gentlemen, it has been a newsworthy few weeks for AEW," Cody said in the video below. "As some of you may know, some of you may be hearing for the first time, AEW has entered into a TV deal with Turner Broadcasting. It's not missed on me, sitting here in Atlanta, Georgia, the youngest of the Rhodes family, the weight of that announcement. The fact that pro wrestling is returning to Turner. ... I want to take a moment to thank you. Thank you for your passion. Thank you for your loyalty. Thank you for your patience. We can't do this without you. We don't intend to do this without you. Let's go forward."
