Booker T On Industry Reaction To Miro’s AEW Debut: “It Was A Big Surprise To Everybody” (VIDEO)

Booker T recently spent some time during his “Hall Of Fame” podcast to talk about the recent “Miro Day” that took place in All Elite Wrestling.

On his “Hall Of Fame” podcast, the two-time WWE Hall Of Fame legend spoke at length about the AEW Dynamite debut of former WWE Superstar Rusev as Miro, “The Best Man” for the upcoming wedding of AEW stars Kip Sabian and Penelope Ford.

Featured below is an excerpt from Booker T’s “Hall Of Fame” podcast where he talks about Miro’s AEW debut:

Yeah man. Of course, it was a big surprise to everybody. Will he make an impact? Of course, man! I really think he’ll make an impact because he was making an impact in WWE. I mean, as far as Rusev Day, fans were getting behind him at one point. The Bulgarian Brute when he first came over, Lana, ‘Crush!’ You know? He had a lot of momentum going right there, so definitely I think he could be an asset to the company, and then just arriving the way he did during COVID times right now. People not expecting to see big money players get shifted around or anything, and boom! He shows up.

So yeah, it’s definitely going to be good for him. It’s going to be good for the company. But is it going to serve him well? I think so. One thing I think he missed the boat on, you know, this is just me. Going to AEW, you know, boom, jab at WWE. That’s alright, but I just think, man, if you want to really, really add fuel to the fire, you know what I mean, you want the star to really, really shine bright, you start causing havoc before you leave. Before you leave the company, I always say, ‘If they fire me at work, I’m breaking something on the way out.’ You know what I’m saying? Making noise! Somebody don’t want to sign me immediately! Then I come in and get ’em really talking major noise and just going all the way over the top! You know, so a moment was missed. For you young guys, there’s a moment. You only get it once, and then that moment, poof, is gone forever. It’s like a miracle. It just disappears.
