Booker T says he likes Adam Cole and blames the internet for using his words as clickbait

Booker T has clarified his comments regarding Adam Cole after receiving backlash.

As previously reported, the former WWE World Heavyweight Champion said on his Hall of Fame podcast “we gotta get more weight on Adam Cole.” He added that he thinks Cole’s frame was a factor behind the injuries in his career. Hangman Adam Page recently ripped him for his take. 

On the latest edition of his podcast, Booker T addressed the backlash and tried to clarify what he meant:

“I like Adam Cole. I think it would be too far to say we’re friends, but I am a fan of Adam Cole….I think people want to make it seem like I’m hating on an AEW guy, I’m not. If I didn’t like Adam Cole, I wouldn’t be saying that we need to get some muscle on him. I’d be saying a whole lot worse than that. As opposed to trying to advocate how we could make Adam Cole look better I think I would be saying a whole lot worse if I was trying to down Adam Cole. That’s what the internet does man. They take anything that I say and try to make it clickbait like I criticized Adam Cole.”
