Booker T Says Tony Khan Should Put Limit On Outside Bookings For AEW Stars


If you ask Booker T, the amount of independent pro wrestling dates that AEW stars are allowed to takes should be limited.

The two-time WWE Hall of Fame legend spoke about his feeling that Tony Khan should limit the outside bookings that his stars in AEW take during a recent installment of his Hall of Fame podcast.

Featured below are some of the highlights from the episode where he touches on this topic with his thoughts.

On injuries in wrestling: “It’s not a matter of ‘if’ it’s going to happen, it’s a matter of ‘when’ it’s going to happen. That’s always been the term in wrestling. Just part of what we do, part of the fabric.”

On letting wrestlers work independent dates: “You only doing TV two days a week, and from what I’ve been hearing, a lot of these guys have been getting lucrative contracts. It should be a huge red flag for Tony Khan and the way he thinks about letting these guys just freelance. If I had a program, and somebody went out and got hurt out on these independent shows and they were under contract to me, that would be a huge problem.”
