Two-time WWE Hall of Fame inductee Booker T, has talked about if there are any similarities between Daniel Bryan and CM Punk potentially joining AEW, and Scott Hall and Kevin Nash’s arrivals in WCW.
Speaking on his Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T had this to say with regards to the comparison:
“The thing is, I don’t call CM Punk jumping ship. I’m not going to say that at all. But these two names, as big as they are, does it have that same feel, like it’s cool and one team just pulled something off? Heck yeah. Yeah, it feels like that because of course, Daniel Bryan, he created something. The Yes movement, that right there, there hasn’t been a movement created like that in WWE in many years where the fans participated like that. It had been many, many years since that happened. Daniel Bryan did that himself. That was organic from him. For him to do that in this era, not being the biggest guy in the locker room, but still can go out there and hold his own, a guy that worked much bigger than he actually is. I’ve always said that boy, D. Bryan is special. To have someone like him on your team is awesome. To be able to make a comeback from having a broken neck and still be able to go out there and do it the way he does, hey man, big, big pick up for AEW.”
