After being suspended from AEW following the All Out media scrum, The Elite made their return on AEW’s Full Gear pay-per-view, where they were cheered on by eager fans. However, in the following AEW Dynamite episode, they trolled the Chicago fans with CM Punk references, which left bitter taste in many people’s mouths. WWE Hall of Famer Booker T took notice of this behavior and felt that it could mean bad news for AEW down the line.

Never one to hold back what’s on his mind, Booker T spoke volumes about the circumstances of the AEW All Out media scrum fiasco on a recent episode of his “Hall of Fame” podcast. After seeing how The Elite made light of the incident during last week’s AEW Dynamite, Booker T was skeptical about how much longer the company can survive.

“When you’re performing on my show, it’s a script. And when you go out there and just do — perform, you know, that’s where things get hectic. That company could be closed down in a couple of years, and these guys are going to be wondering what the hell happened. And it’s because they’re going out there and playing games, not understanding what this stuff is really about,”

Despite their antagonizing antics, Booker T praised the hard work that The Elite is putting in. He went on to say that as long as The Elite have fans who are invested in what they do and keep raking in money, their antics can be easily overlooked.


“They’re working their butts off. They’re bumping like crazy. Those guys are taking some of the craziest bumps you’ve ever seen, but they do it. If everybody can figure that out, I’m sure The Young Bucks’ bank account looks pretty well. So if you can figure that out, you’re okay.”

Booker T is set to appear in wrestling match for his promotion Reality of Wrestling on November 29 which will mark his second in-ring appearance this year. As for The Elite, it remains to be seen where they will lead AEW. For more updates, stay tuned to Ringside News.
