WWE Hall of Famer Booker T recently gave his thoughts on All Elite Wrestling during his latest Heated Conversations episode. Since the promotion was launched last month, several new talents have signed with AEW.
Sonny Kiss, Sammy Guevara, Trent Barreta, Chuck Taylor, Pentagon Jr., Fenix, Aja Kong, Yuka Sakazaki, Kylie Ray, Nyla Rose, and Kenny Omega are the latest talents to be confirmed to be under contract with AEW.
In the eyes of the WWE Legend, he thinks talents like Kazarian and Christopher Daniels will cause some fans to associate to their past runs in TNA.
“Me personally, If I’m gonna have some veterans around, they’re gonna be in the production room,” Booker said. “They ain’t gonna be on the roster, that’s just my opinion. It’s just like [my] Reality of Wrestling [School], I need you to look at this thing differently, I need you to look at it fresh, I need you to look at it from a perspective that has never been seen before.
“And when I see a guy like Kazarian, when I see a guy like Daniels, I see TNA. It’s just a constant reminder. All the rest of these other names – Fenix – and those guys, I’ve never heard of these guys before, man, I wanna check this guy. I wanna see what he’s got. When you say Christopher Daniels, I go, oh, I know what he got. I’ve seen him do the moonsaults a couple times. I’ve seen Kazarian.”
