As we reported, WWE’s Chief Content Officer Triple H recently ended up calling Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling ‘a secondary promotion’, which according to the official numbers, it totally is, despite Tony Khan being offended by The Cerebral Assassin’s words.
During a recent episode of his weekly ‘Hall Of Fame’ podcast, Booker T commented on Triple H’s words, by saying the following:
“I don’t know. You know, I don’t even really know how to approach it or take it. It’s a comment.
You know what, secondary could could mean, I think, more than, you know, being in second.
Secondary could be another company. Cody Rhodes grew up in the WWE, not TNA, not WCW, not AEW.
That may be how I am, that’s how I’m approaching it. I’m saying is, one could have played himself by even commenting.
Because there again, for me secondary is not a bad thing. It could be again, New Japan, AEW, TNA, WCW, it could be anything.
Cody Rhodes grew up wanting to be the WWE Champion, something his Dad did not achieve. So that’s the way I’m looking at it.”
Cody Rhodes first wrestled for WWE from 2007 until 2016 and later, after stints in IMPACT Wrestling (2016-2017) and All Elite Wrestling (2019-2022), returned at WrestleMania 38 as the mystery opponent for Seth Rollins.
