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 earlier this month, they’ve been a hot topic among fans as well as wrestlers due to it being yet another alternative to the WWE.
In the eyes of the WWE Legend, he thinks that AEW is coming in hot and a promotion that is a startup that have some major players. Talents confirmed to be under contract thus far include Cody, Brandi Rhodes, The Young Bucks, Chris Jericho, PAC (formerly known as Neville in WWE), Britt Baker, MJF, Joey Janela, Penelope Ford, Frankie Kazarian, Christopher Daniels, and Scorpio Sky.
“They’re coming in hot, I’ve never seen anything like this, a company that is a pop up is major players. TNA was built around a bunch of young guys that were unknowns, these are guys who are starting an organization and they are signing big contracts.”
“With Chris Jericho behind this thing, that’s a legitimizer. They have a major player that’s been all over the world and has done it all, as well as Chris Jericho is that teacher, he isn’t going to be that guy that’s just along for the ride, more power to him for taking a shot at it.”
