It’s been 2 months since the All Out media scrum situation. On the AEW Dynamite episode following their return, The Elite made light of the situation by taking major digs at CM Punk. This left a bad taste in many people’s mouths, including the legendary WWE Hall of Famer Booker T.
Booker T lambasted the behavior displayed by The Elite on a recent episode of his Hall of Fame podcast. The WWE Hall of Famer told listeners that he didn’t understand what The Elite were trying to accomplish, going to CM Punk’s hometown to disrespect the former AEW wrestler. He found the whole situation quite distasteful
“You know man, I’m perplexed on that situation right there. Just because I don’t think it was anything tasteful about it, you know? I don’t think rehashing what happened a couple of months ago [as] opposed to letting it go away is making anything better as far as that company goes. And if Tony Khan knew about it and signed off on it — and they know CM Punk isn’t coming back, they probably going to be thinking about moving their headquarters after this last show here [in Chicago].
Like I said, I don’t I don’t see what the smarts were in going out there and doing something like that. Leaning into it just because it’s where CM Punk is from and you’re going to get some heat, you know what I mean? And you can’t take the heat, it’s almost like, ‘You hit me, I’ma hit you back.’ You know, two rights don’t make a wrong, I just didn’t — for me, it was just distasteful.”
Booker T claimed that The Elite have been stretching out this whole fiasco longer than they should have. He also went on to say that the whole ordeal was quite childish. He also went on to say that if AEW closes, then this kind of behavior will be to blame.
Booker T believes that if The Elite were to continue this sort of behavior, the day is not far where AEW finds itself closing down. For more updates, stay tuned to Ringside News.
