While talking in The Hall of Fame with Booker T & Brad Gilmore podcast, he said, “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. Now what I think does AEW a hell of a service is doing shows like they did at Ashe Stadium, okay? They got Target Center coming up. Go out there and produce.”

“It’s a saying, man, you know, you can talk about it or you can be about it. If you go out and produce, you ain’t got to say nothing. It’s right here,” Booker T added.

Booker T also claimed that the boss does not work on the battlefield. He feels the boss makes strategies with his generals in the war room and everyone else goes out and works in the war zone. Booker T was not the only former WWE superstar who was unhappy with Tony Khan. Former WWE superstar Eric Bischoff was also unhappy with the statements made by Tony Khan in recent times.
