• Booker T Comments On Jordan Myles Quitting WWE By Saying He Refuses To Work For Racists

After his recent T-Shirt controversy with the WWE, NXT wrestler Jordan Myles has quit WWE in a video he posted on Twitter.

Below is what he said in his video:

“As of today, I’d like to officially announce that I quit f**king WWE. I am no longer employed.

I refuse to work for racists. I f**king quit, f**k them. I hate that f**king company and everything they f**king stand for.

All they ever did was hold our people back. I do this sh*t for the culture. I don’t need anyone’s f**king permission to do what I want to do.

Screw Jordan Myles, don’t ever call me by that slave name. Call me ACH and don’t forget the ‘Super’, b*tch.

I quit, f**k you!”

During a recent edition of his Hall of Fame podcast, two time WWE Hall of Famer Booker T addressed this situation and had the following to say:

“I don’t know if Jordan Myles has quit the company, but on social media, he posted that he quit the company. I am not going to sit here and judge or anything like that, or say that he should have done this or he should have done that.

I’m going to lay out on that because I don’t need any backlash before someone said that Booker said this or Booker said that. I am going to say that the situation all started with the t-shirt and now it has gotten to this.

I don’t know where it’s going to go from here. I have been on this earth for 54 years and if you think one person is something, call them that, or if you think that person is something, call them that, but I cannot judge a group and say everybody is that.

When you make a blanket statement like that you do no justice for yourself or the culture. I say this because I have had a lot of years and a lot of experience. I do know that I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for a white guy named Bruce Gasarch, who made this all happen for me as far as changing my life, which is another story.

I could have easily could have judged everyone the same way after my situation of going to prison, being a kid who had never been in trouble before and for the first time being locked up in the back of a police car saying that, ‘the system did me wrong. I hate everybody of that color’, you know what I mean?

If I did that, I would have done myself an injustice more than anything and I think that is the situation that I want to make clear here. The way he’s going by this, he’s doing himself an injustice.”
