• “I misspoke on that” – Booker T On WWE’s Latest Signing
During an interview on The MMA Hour, 2-time WWE Hall Of Famer Booker T said that WWE has signed the inaugural ROH Women’s World Champion Rok-C (age 20).
Rok-C was a part of Booker T’s Reality Of Wrestling promotion at one point.
Below is what Booker T said about wrestlers from his promotion getting signed to WWE & AEW during an interview:
“I’m more so often to working with the talent that is trying to get to the next level.
One of my girls just debuted on AEW Dynamite with Jade Cargill, that’s AQA. They just signed her to a contract and that’s really really cool.
One of my girls, Rok-C, WWE just signed her. She was my youngest champion in Reality of Wrestling. Started with me in a fantasy camp.
At 13 years old, her dream was to be Reality of Wrestling Champion. I got guys out there floating around all over the world. That’s my passion, working with young guys from an in-ring perspective, a mental perspective, a life perspective. It gives me purpose.”
Booker T later provided a clarification on Twitter, and said WWE hasn’t signed Rok-C yet:
“There’s an article going around saying I confirmed Rok-C signed a contract to WWE, I misspoke on that…but they better sign her dammit!”
