For a time AEW Dynamite was going head to head with NXT on Wednesday nights, and on Friday AEW Rampage will go head to head with SmackDown for the first time ever. The shows will oppose each other for the first 30 minutes of Rampage, and the wrestling world is waiting to see what will happen.
Booker T recently addressed the head to head battle on his Hall of Fame podcast, and he called it a “bold step” while saying that he doesn’t think WWE will be backing down anytime soon.
“It’s definitely going to show who’s eyes are on the product this weekend. Competition, that’s what I said before, is good. For WWE to say, ‘Hey, we’re going to run an extra 30 minutes to show these guys “What’s up.”‘ That’s a bold step as well. I don’t think WWE is going to be backing down anytime soon from AEW. I just don’t see that. I think, bumping it up and bringing in the big guns is nothing that WWE is not familiar with. Let’s get ready to rumble,” said the WWE legend.
The former WWE World Heavyweight Champion also indicated that he wants to see WALTER on the main roster while saying that WALTER could “beat up everybody on the AEW roster.”
“It’s going to be many more nights like this. It’s time to get WALTER over here – like I said, I’m an international guy, I need the international people. A guy like WALTER will beat up everybody on the AEW roster. I know everybody’s going to get pis*ed off at me (laughs).”
