WWE Hall of Famer Booker T has spoken on his Hall of Fame podcast about Adam Cole’s debut at AEW All Out.
Booker mentioned that he believes Cole winning the AEW World Championship would ‘change the name of the game’ of wrestling, saying:
“If Adam Cole wins the AEW World Heavyweight Championship, it will change the whole name of the game. Just because he’s that guy that a lot of people don’t think should be playing that role and that position. It would show the adversity of what AEW is all about.
Booker continued on, explaining why he believes that Cole won’t be overlooked by the company, saying:
“I don’t think he’s going to get washed out. I think the way AEW works their talent, they’re trying to make everybody on the roster a star. I think that’s what the business has always been in the past, every wrestler in the 90s in the WWE came out of the curtain and they were a star. They brought somebody’s a** to a seat in that arena. That’s what I think AEW is trying to do, have all of their stars create as far as reaching to their fan base only.”
Booker recently agreed with comments made by fellow WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley on how WWE needs to ‘get their a** in gear’.
