• Booker T Shows Support For AEW After Bubba Ray Dudley’s Comments
During a recent edition of Busted Open Radio, WWE Hall of Famer Bubba Ray Dudley compared the in-ring product of NXT and AEW.
Here’s what Bubba said:
“It’s hard for me to come on the show, and I don’t want to do this, first and foremost, I don’t look to come on the show and point out holes in the game or the negatives.
Honestly, I just want to come on talk positive about pro wrestling, and tell everybody what a great job everybody did.
When I watch NXT, I don’t see glaring issues like I see with AEW. But the work in the ring is solid, it’s tight [in NXT]. 9 Times out of 10, it makes psychological sense. The physicality is there.
A lot of times you watch AEW and you know, guys and gals are missing stuff. It can get a little indie-rific at times, whereas the NXT product is a lot more polished and the work rate is extremely tight.”
After this, two time WWE Hall of Famer Booker T showed support for All Elite Wrestling.
Here’s what the former 6 time World Champion said on his Hall Of Fame podcast:
“Wrestling is so many different things. Wrestling is not MMA, it’s not boxing. Professional wrestling has always been entertainment based.
One thing you can rest assured on with AEW is not every match is going to look the same because those guys are a fluctuation of Indy guys and more experienced guys like [Jon] Moxley going to look totally different than some of the other guys.
Wrestling is what I always say, to be able to do the same thing everyone else is doing a little different.”
