• Booker T Comments On Randy Orton Possibly Joining AEW

During a recent edition of his Hall Of Fame podcast, two time WWE Hall of Famer Booker T discussed 13 time WWE World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton teasing a possible move to AEW.

Below are the highlights:

On Randy Orton possibly going to AEW:

“How cool [AEW] is, you know, Cody Rhodes and Young Bucks, Kenny Omega, and yeah he is an elite-level player. I always said, Randy Orton is an elite wrestler, he’s an elite superstar. He’s my guy, I always said that.

One thing about Randy man, he’s always been a rebel. He’s always been a guy that walks to the beat of his own drum, you know what I mean? And if anybody was to do something crazy, it would be Randy… I’m gonna say it right now, man. If it happened, I would not be surprised.”

On if this move will ever happen:

“I don’t think something like that is going to happen. I think Randy Orton is safe, and I think he’s being taken care of very well in the WWE. I don’t think we’re going to lose Randy Orton any time soon. But anything’s possible. Like Randy ‘The Macho Man’ Savage said many years ago, ‘Always expect the unexpected’.”
