Starrcast III is set to take place during AEW All Out weekend, and originally WWE Hall of Famer Booker T was booked to appear at Starrcast.
Booker T confirmed via Twitter that he would no longer be a part of the event, and it was also reported on F4Wonline.com that Booker pulled out of AEW All Out due to the war between WWE and AEW.
Conrad Thompson has taken to Twitter to issue a statement saying that Dave Meltzer’s report is inaccurate, and Booker T also noted that he will be setting the record straight on Starrcast within the next 24 hours.
Conrad posted the following:
“Meltzer’s report below is inaccurate. I don’t work for AEW and have no power to “book” anyone. STARRCAST is independent and we enjoyed Booker’s appearance in Las Vegas. I will miss him this time in Chicago but look forward to working with him again sometime in the future.”
I will be setting the record straight within the next 24 hours regarding the story going around about me “pulling out” of @StarrcastEvents.
