• WWE Purchasing AEW? Hall Of Famer Says ‘Never Say Never’
On a recent episode of his weekly ‘Hall of Fame’ podcast, 2-time WWE Hall Of Famer Booker T discussed the possibility of WWE buying their #1 competition, All Elite Wrestling, at some point in the future.
Here’s what the 5-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion had to say:
“Hey man, never say never. I’m not saying that could ever happen or wouldn’t happen, but I’m not going to say it is going to happen. You might be waiting a long time. The WCW guys were waiting 12 years for Vince McMahon to buy WCW.
He finally did, but it was a long battle, a long war, a lot of bodies and casualties of war. When he did buy it, there were even more casualties, guys never wrestled in the business from a big time perspective ever again after WCW doors closed down.
Me personally, I’m not one of these guys that’s going to be talking about, ‘man, I wish these guys would go out of business or anything like that,’ because every guy that has a job in this business is a good thing.
One thing about WWE, they cannot supply every wrestler out there that wants to do this. For me, it’s all about guys being able to live out that dream, doing one percent at the highest level and being able to look back on their legacy.
And hopefully you fans got to win more than anybody because you got to see two awesome companies at the same time just like it was back in the day. WCW, WWF, it was two awesome wrestling companies that you guys got to see.
Even though we made it a war – and the only reason it was a war was because it was that damn good. Just enjoy the ride.”
