Booker T on WWE's problems: "I agree with Mick Foley 100%. We need to get our a** in gear, bottom line"



WWE Hall Of Famer Booker T reviewed AEW All Out on the lastest episode of "The Hall Of Fame" podcast.

Booker T feels that the Lucha Brothers maybe the best team in wrestling today:

“The reason why I say The Lucha Brothers may be the best tag-team is because wherever these guys go, if you let them, they’ll get over. Anywhere these guys go, if you let them do their thing, they will get over with the fans and they can bring a whole lot of money to your company just because people will want to support them and see them. They might be the best tag-team in the world right now.”

Booker said he agrees with Mick Foley’s comments about WWE having a problem:

“I want to talk about those comments because I think there’s a lot of validity to those comments that Mick Foley made. It was critical in a constructive criticism way. I can’t disagree with Mick Foley on anything. He’s a smart dude, and he’s very, very intelligent as well. He knows his stuff. He’s been there. He’s done it, so coming from Mick Foley, you have to take it and say, ‘Ok, let me look at this.’ One thing also, in wrestling and young people, is how things change so quickly. Just think about it. 20 years ago, UFC started. From that point, kids who were 5, 6, 7 years old, they were watching UFC. They gravitated to it. That’s the only thing they wanted to do. It was something new to them. Right now, AEW is in its infancy stages, but you have a lot of young kids, the first time they’re watching professional wrestling, the first wrestling they’re seeing may not be WWE. It may be AEW. If you're not thinking about that kind of stuff, that kind of generational gap, you might be missing the boat. As far as what Mick Foley said about Karrion Kross, if it ain't broke, don’t fix it, how many times have I said that? If it’s working, you don’t touch it. You leave it alone. If you can enhance it, you enhance it and make it better, but you don’t take anything away from it. That’s just my opinion. I agree with Mick Foley 100%. We need to get our a** in gear, bottom line.”

Booker was asked why WWE can’t work with other companies:

“I think contractually, it would be hard to do it over a long period of time with your roster. One or two guys, three or four guys that you want to use in matches, I don’t know. That might work out but having the whole roster work with somebody, I can’t see that happening. I can’t see WWE doing that. Even Reality of Wrestling, I can’t see Reality of Wrestling working with another group long term because I’m trying to create my own thing. These are my wrestlers. We’re trying to create a storyline and go on this path and make sure our guys stay in this position. It’s hard to do that when you’re working with so many groups. Who’s going to win? Who’s going to beat who? It could be a can of worms trying to do something like that. I could be wrong. That’s just my opinion. AEW is doing it pretty well working with Impact, but if you notice, just like I said, they’re only working with Impact with about 3 or 4 guys.”
