Booker T Thinks WWE Have The Opportunity To Make A Star At WrestleMania 40 Following CM Punk's Injury

CM Punk’s injury has given WWE the opportunity to make a star at WrestleMania 40 according to Booker T

WWE’s plans for WrestleMania XL took a tumble with the revelation that CM Punk has torn his triceps and will not be wrestling at the event, with the ‘Second City Saint’ believed to have been pencilled in for a shot at Seth Rollins’ World Heavyweight Championship at the event.

Whilst WWE are teasing that Rollins could defend the title against Cody Rhodes at Mania, WWE Hall of Famer Booker T believes WWE should use the opportunity to crown a new star, saying the following on the Hall of Fame podcast:

“Right now, just coming off the Rumble, you look at the talent pool, you got a plethora of talent right now. There’s so many guys on the roster that can step into that spot and become something and make themselves. To be able to make stars, you gotta put them in a position to become stars. I just think we got an opportunity here, we got a huge opportunity, especially with Punk going down, even though Punk, that’s a great match. Either one of those guys, if Seth wins, it’s great. If Punk wins, it’s great. But Punk is already a made man, and Seth is already a made man. I’m looking to make somebody," Booker T said.
