Booker T: Adam Cole As AEW World Champion Would Change The Whole Name Of The Game
Cole joined AEW at All Out earlier this month
Booker T believes Adam Cole winning the AEW World Heavyweight Championship would 'change the whole name of the game', given his stature and size would have traditionally not seen him given such a role.
Cole joined AEW earlier this month, making his debut at All Out 2021, having departed WWE in August. The former NXT Champion had reportedly been pitched ideas for the WWE main roster, the most notable of which included being a manager for a heel Keith Lee.
Having moved to All Elite Wrestling, Cole is instantly recognised as one of the promotion's biggest names, and WWE Hall Of Famer Booker T feels the promotion could make a huge statement by making the former WWE guy - who is still in his prime - their World Champion.
Speaking on his Hall Of Fame Podcast, Booker T said: "If Adam Cole wins the AEW World Heavyweight Championship, it will change the whole name of the game. Just because he’s that guy that a lot of people don’t think should be playing that role and that position. It would show the adversity of what AEW is all about.
"I don’t think he’s going to get washed out. I think the way AEW works their talent, they’re trying to make everybody on the roster a star. I think that’s what the business has always been in the past, every wrestler in the 90s in the WWE came out of the curtain and they were a star. They brought somebody’s a** to a seat in that arena.
"That’s what I think AEW is trying to do, have all of their stars create as far as reaching to their fan base only."
