AEW All Out was able to sell out in just fifteen minutes and it will be taking place on August 31st of this year. Apparently, Booker T was scheduled to appear for the event but he has pulled out.
According to a report by Dave Meltzer, Booker T pulled out of the event even though he had earlier agreed to make an appearance. It was said that Booker T did this as he realized that the war between AEW vs WWE is “very real.”
Booker T, after agreeing to come, has pulled out of All Out. He evidently said when pulling out that he found out the WWE vs. AEW war was very real and he didn’t want to be in the middle of it.
This is certainly something that Booker T cannot be blamed for. During the Monday Night wars, Booker T was one of the only WCW originals to have a successful career in WWE. He is treated with respect in WWE right now and is appearing on kickoff show panels always. He also got inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame along with his brother this year.
It will be interesting to see how the war between WWE and AEW turns out. The wrestling world waits with bated breath.
