WWE Hall of Famer Booker T believes that AEW is far more interested in hosting matches than building a cohesive story between events.
On the latest edition of his “Hall of Fame” podcast, Booker T spoke about AEW All Out 2023 happening one week after All In 2023 and admitted that he only learned recently about All Out taking place. He said,
“I didn’t know about it. Didn’t know about any of these matches. It’s like this, this, this show is like a hotshot. It’s, like, put together here at the last minute. But, you know, I mean, I think with AEW, they’re not thinking about the buildup. They’re just thinking about the matches.
“It’s just one of those companies; I don’t think that’s a recipe for success. I don’t. WCW was more wrestling-oriented than story, but they tried to do a build-up. They did try to, you know, agree with the fans as far as making the fans go on a ride from that perspective as well. Maybe the story may not have been as good. They may not have been as well put together. I do think they did try it.”
