WWE Hall Of Famer Booker T has stoked the flames of competition as he says a star of the WWE could take on everyone on the AEW roster and come out on top.
The five-time WCW Champion was discussing the upcoming Friday night competition between AEW and WWE as a super-sized SmackDown overlaps with the first half of AEW Rampage.
Speaking on his Hall Of Fame podcast, Booker T says the competition between the two companies is good and he doesn’t see WWE backing down from the upstart promotion anytime soon:
“It’s definitely going to show who’s eyes are on the product this weekend. Competition, that’s what I said before, is good. For WWE to say, ‘Hey, we’re going to run an extra 30 minutes to show these guys what’s up.’ That’s a bold step as well. I don’t think WWE is going to be backing down anytime soon from AEW. I just don’t see that. I think, bumping it up and bringing in the big guns is nothing that WWE is not familiar with. Let’s get ready to rumble.”
Booker T then brought up record-setting former NXT UK Champion WALTER and says it’s time for the Ring General to make his presence felt in the US. Booker then followed up by poking the bear with his tongue in his cheek as he says the highly sought after WALTER could demolish the entire AEW roster:
“It’s going to be many more nights like this. It’s time to get WALTER over here – like I said, I’m an international guy, I need the international people. A guy like WALTER will beat up everybody on the AEW roster. I know everybody’s going to get pis*ed off at me (laughs).”
