As seen over the past week or so, AEW President Tony Khan has upped his game a bit by calling out WWE on multiple occasions. The big topic of discussion over the past week was when Tony Khan revealed that he “couldn’t wait” for AEW Rampage to beat WWE SmackDown in the ratings last Friday night, which actually happened in the key 18 – 49 demographic during the half-hour where the two shows went head-to-head.
During the latest edition of his “Hall of Fame” podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Booker T commented on the situation and why he’s not a big fan of it. You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
On Tony Khan talking trash about WWE: “So I’m not saying one company shouldn’t throw digs or anything like that. I’m just talking about the boss. The boss normally let all of the soldiers — I mean, just say the commander in chief. He ain’t gonna be on the battlefield doing the work. All right? He’s gonna be in the war room, strategizing with all the generals, and then you got everybody else out there in the war zone working.”
On why he doesn’t like it: “Calling out WWE on a regular basis, talking about WWE on a regular basis. Me personally? I don’t think it does a whole lot for AEW. Me personally! Now what I think does AEW a hell of a service? Doing shows like they did at [Arthur] Ashe Stadium, okay? They got Target Center coming up. Go out there and produce! And I think, you ain’t gotta talk about it. And it’s a saying, man: ‘You can talk about it, or you can be about it.’ Which one do you wanna be? If you go out and produce, you ain’t gotta say nothing. It’s right here!”
