Booker T Sounds Off On Death Matches In AEW

What does Booker T think about deathmatches in All Elite Wrestling?

The WWE Hall of Fame legend sounded off on this exact subject during a recent installment of his “Hall Of Fame” podcast.

Featured below is an excerpt from the show where he touches on this topic.

“I wouldn’t [have a deathmatch], but I’m not Chris Jericho. He’s been pretty extreme throughout his career and been willing to throw caution to the wind. I think he may have even done the thumbtack thing before. But for me, it’s not my cup of tea…..I think Gage having a shot on AEW TV, no matter what people think, that’s a big deal for him. I really do. This guy has been the king of the deathmatch, but to make it to primetime and be one of those guys – like New Jack, he didn’t make it to primetime TV. So this guy has put eyes on him, and obviously the brass in AEW think we can get something out of this. I think it could work.”
