Booker T Gives High Praise To Jay Lethal, Says There’s Nobody Better Than Him


During the latest edition of his “Hall of Fame” podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Booker T commented on Jay Lethal signing with AEW, what he brings to the table, and more. According to the former WWE Champion himself, there is nobody better than Lethal.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On Lethal signing with AEW: “Jay Lethal, he’s a soldier, bro. I’ve gotten a chance to work with Jay Lethal in TNA and he’s always been a guy that, I must say, loves this business more than anybody I’ve ever seen. Jay Lethal loves this business. He loved working for that company but when the doors closed, they sent him a letter saying his contract is void. It’s like any athlete man, you’ve got to look for work and you’ve got to do it quick because those notes that come in the mailbox they’re called bills.

“They keep coming whether you’re working for somebody or not. Jay Lethal is saying AEW opened the doors, and he stepped right in there and I’m glad for him and glad to see Jay Lethal take that next step past ROH. I’ve always thought Jay Lethal should be somewhere working primetime, there again the loyalty that he has given to this business, so give that man a break.”

On Lethal’s talents: “It’s a great story more than anything. At the end of the day, he got a shot and hopefully he gets to show the world how good he really is. I’ll tell you right now, there ain’t nobody better than Jay Lethal, the guy can go out and work with anybody in the world. That right there is the mark of a true worker.

“I just said ain’t nobody better than Jay Lethal, that doesn’t mean that Jay Lethal is better than everybody out there, that’s not what I’m saying. What I’m saying is this is a guy that knows exactly what that squared circle means and he can work with the best of them. When that guy walks away, they’re going to say, ‘He was pretty good.’ that’s the mark of a great worker.”
