• Booker T Reveals If AEW’s Backstage Drama Feels Similar To WCW’s Dying Days
As we all know, there was a backstage fight in AEW recently between CM Punk / Ace Steel and The Elite (Kenny Omega & Young Bucks).
A lot of people got suspended for it and champions were stripped of their Titles.
During an interview with Wrestlinginc, Old School WCW Legend Booker T was asked if AEW’s backstage drama feels similar to the dying days of World Championship Wrestling.
Below is what the 5-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion said:
“Not at all. Totally different. Our last days at WCW, you could see the writing on the wall that the plug had been pulled. We were just waiting on the doctors to come tell everybody it’s over, you know what I mean?
Right now, Tony Khan still got a whole lot of money. He’s invested, he’s all in, no pun intended, with this company. And I think he’s going to do everything he possibly can to make this thing work.
I wouldn’t even think Tony Khan is going to even start thinking about anything other than making this thing successful.
If he gets to that 5-year mark and things not working out, he might start thinking then.”
