• “I can’t sit here and hate what Daniel Bryan is doing” – WWE Hall Of Famer On Reports Of Bryan Signing With AEW
During the latest episode of his Hall Of Fame podcast, 2-time WWE Hall Of Famer Booker T talked about the reports of Daniel Bryan signing with All Elite Wrestling.
Here’s what the WCW Legend said:
“I’m like Nate Diaz, I’m not surprised. I’m going to leave the last part off, but I’m not surprised at all, man as far as guys making the switch and going over.
It’s war man, it really is and these guys have every right to actually do it the way they want to do it and if they’re not happy over here.
Daniel Bryan has had a great career in WWE, he was making money on the independent circuit, this guy was putting in the work. I’m not going to hate and the thing is WWE shouldn’t hate either.
Basketball players go to different teams every year. We saw LeBron James leave Cleveland and say I’m going to South Beach. I understand, I get it, if I was one of those guys I might be thinking the same exact thing.
It’s not like it used to be back in the day where guys wanted to have a 20 year career in WWE. It was different back then, it’s a totally different time now with these young guys and the way they see this business. It’s their world and I can’t sit here and hate what Daniel Bryan is doing.
One thing about Daniel Bryan and AEW, he’s going to be able to pretty much write his own ticket, go out and have the matches that he wants to have. Go ahead and create the stories that he wants to create.
I always wanted to be able to create and do my own thing as well, I knew I wasn’t going to be able to do that in WWE, that’s why I got Reality of Wrestling. I said I’ll create my own stories, I’ll create my own angles.
That’s what guys want to do, they want to be able to do their own thing and AEW has given a lot of these guys a chance to do their own thing.”
