Booker T reflects on fans backlash after his remarks on Adam Cole

Last updated

WWE Hall of Famer Booker T recently made some comments about AEW star Adam Cole that sparked controversy. Booker had previously made some remarks on Cole’s body and stated that a lack of size may have contributed to some of his recent injuries. Those comments did not sit well with the fans of the AEW star. Booker revealed the rage over his remarks and addressed the ongoing criticism.

Booker T addresses the situation

Several stars came in defense of Cole including the former AEW World Champion Hangman Page, who appeared to tweet taking a shot at Booker. On the most recent episode of his ‘The Hall of Fame’ podcast, Booker T questioned whether the tweet was actually directed at him, pointing out that Page never mentioned him by name.

‘I honestly agree with everything that Adam Page said,’ Booker said. ‘Everything. 100%.’

Booker said he has often told his co-host to ‘shut me down’ if he ever becomes overly critical of younger wrestlers. ‘I don’t want anyone to think that I’m body-shaming anyone,’ he said. ‘I don’t believe in running people down, I’m looking to build people up.’

However, Booker also made it known that he feels protective of pro wrestling as a whole.

‘I just want it to be known that I love this business ’¦ just as much as the next guy that has put in time,’ Booker declared. ‘And to still keep it a certain way? I believe in that too.’

Booker reiterated, however, that he stands by his belief that Cole would benefit from adding some muscle to his frame.
