Booker T On What Opportunities Lies Beneath For The Released WWE Stars
Big names like Aleister Black have already signed for the rival promotions of WWE. Aleister Black recently made his AEW debut undar new ring name Malakai Black. But big restless like Braun Strowman are still jobless. It was rumoured that Aleister Black would be coming back to WWE very soon, but there is no chance anymore since he is signed with AEW right now.
Samoa Joe was also released from WWE after WrestleMania 37. But he was brought back again since it was reported that Triple H was not happy with the release of Joe. Right now Joe is working in the NXT. Where are you mad that WWE would bring back more of their released stars very soon.
Two times WWE Hall of Famer Booker T recently spoke on his Hall of Fame Podcast where he discussed about the opportunities that are waiting for the recently released WWE stars. He said;
“There is so much life after a WWE career. It’s not even funny but people just get caught up on the clickbait. Who’s getting fired? If I get fired from one job, I’m going to another one. It’s why I left WCW. I would have been working and making money in this business if I would have never gone to WWE and that’s what people need to understand.
“It is plentiful out there in the world of professional wrestling right now. You can make a career on the independent scene alone if you are good enough. I’m not jiving, I say that because look at guys like Bryan Danielson – now known as Daniel Bryan – and I look at guys like Samoa Joe, look at guys like CM Punk.
“Those guys were working on the indie scenes and they were paying their bills once upon a time. I can’t speak as an expert on the independent scene because I didn’t really work the indies a whole lot. I did a few independent shows. But I just want to say it’s good to see those guys moving on.”
