"A lot of concerns that guys have is, 'what happens if I get hurt in the ring?' That's the one thing WWE covers. We can confirm that anybody that gets hurt in an AEW ring will be 100 percent taken care of by AEW," said Cody.

On the subject of health care, AEW President Tony Khan confirmed in his media scrum that full-time employees would have "the best in health care and benefits." Khan said benefits for other wrestlers/employees would be dependent on their involvement with AEW.
