Booker T Talks Vince McMahon’s Retirement, Impact It Will Have On Pro Wrestling

As previously reported, Vince McMahon, at the age of 77, announced his retirement from the WWE just a few hours prior to this past Friday's episode of WWE SmackDown going on the air. Two-time WWE Hall of Famer Booker T recently appeared on 790 The Ticket’s Tobin & Leroy Show to gave his thoughts on Vince McMahon's retirement.

Booker T said:

“I was floored.” “It’s the end of an era. Vince McMahon, he’s done so much for this business and so many people like myself, so yeah, I definitely felt some kind of way about it.”

Booker T also talked about the impact Vince McMahon’s retirement will have on the wrestling industry.

Booker T said:

“As far as the impact that it’s gonna have on the business, you know, I’m sure there’s gonna be ripples, but I think at the end of the day the ship is gonna be directed and on course and prepared to shift gears.” “More than anything I think in a situation like this, you just gotta know how to adapt, shift gears. WWE is the biggest company in the world, and we got the best talent in the world, so, I think, you never know, with change sometimes it might be a little better.”
