Booker T Calls For WWE To Re-Hire Released Star

Booker T

WWE Hall of Famer Booker T has encouraged the company to re-hire a recently released Superstar.

A plethora of former WWE superstars have made their way back to the company in recent weeks following Triple H taking over creative duties on the main roster.

The latest rumoured name to re-join the company is Top Dolla, with reports suggesting that he is set to be backstage at this week’s SmackDown taping.

Booker T commented on the rumours on a recent episode of his ‘Hall of Fame’ podcast and reserved special praise for the former Hit Row member:

“I always liked what Top Dolla was doing. I’m a big fan of the kid. I got a chance to work with him in the WWE Most Wanted Treasures, [and] him and I really got a chance to bond in a perspective where I could see that he’s somebody in the business who we call ‘smart’ and he can actually pick this up and do something with it.”

The former WCW Champion went on to suggest that Top Dolla has a lot to offer WWE, both inside and outside of the ring:

“He’s very athletic and just to be given a shot would be… that’s #1 as far as I’m concerned. Just give him a shot. I ain’t talking about his wrestling. His wrestling – it is going to be what it is. This dude can talk. This dude is talent. He’s multi-talented. To be able to use that in this world of wrestling the way we do it now, bringing in guys like Bad Bunny – it’s perfectly fitting for someone like him to see exactly how far he can go with this.”

The Hit Row stable consisted of Top Dolla, Ashante ‘Thee’ Adonis, B-Fab and Isaiah ‘Swerve’ Scott. The popular NXT faction had a very brief run on WWE’s main roster, with all four members being released by the company within a few weeks of their SmackDown debut due to ‘budget cuts’ in the company.

Swerve, now known as Swerve Strickland is currently one half of the AEW World Tag Team Champions alongside Keith Lee.
