Booker T Talks Brock Lesnar possibly signing with AEW

Multi-time WWE Hall of Famer and six-time WWE Champion, Booker T, recently spoke about Brock Lassner on his Hall of Fame podcast and is no longer being contracted with WWE. Booker referenced the era in which he came to support Lesnar for his decision to move away from business.

“Sometimes you just get up to step away from the game and freshen up,” Booker said. “Here’s my take on it: Brock Lassner has done a lot in WWE. You have to understand the era in which the dock comes from. He comes from the era where he was under the Undertaker’s learning tree and Stone Cold People like Steve Austin. I got a chance to work a little with Brock in my earlier days.

“I think Brock now sees the roster as completely different from when he did back then,” Booker continued. “Just imagine the difference that Brock would have made in this era, unlike that era. Can you imagine Brock would have killed everyone and made a run like Goldberg, back in WCW Was. There are very few people you can really do. Faith can beat Brock Lassner. There was no disrespect to anyone, but there were very few people in my era who you thought could go on . ”

Lesnar’s contract and schedule have been regularly discussed since his return to the company. Co-host of Booker T, Brad Gilmore, mentioned that he is not sure if anyone in the history of the industry that made more money per appearance than Lassner was able to make millions of dollars in a very limited time is. According to Gilmore, one of the reasons he has been so successful in negotiations is that he always has the trump card to return to the UFC.

“Talking about that UFC thing,” Booker began, “that heavyweight division is really thin. It’s really a perfect time for him to use it and say,” Hey, let me go back and get that To make some of the money here. ” Just to keep it real, you know that the UFC is looking for Brock Lassner’s charm right now. ”

Now the question is being raised whether Lassner really wants to do it at the age of 42. Gilmore noted that this time in terms of contract negotiations with Lassner, one thing is different that AEW is an option. Booker responded by stating that he believed there was no way Vince McMahon would allow AEW to steal Lasnar.

Booker said, “I don’t think WWE will let that happen.” “Brock Lesnar is not the man we can lose to AEW. I’m not looking like that. Can it happen? Of course it can happen. When the money is right, anything can happen.”

Khan was recently asked about his interest in Lesnar, but declined to comment on the situation.
