The former WWE star deleted his Facebook post after gathering brickbats on his controversial remark.
WWE Hall of Famer Booker T has been largely vocal about his opinion around the company and its former stars. He, has now, taken a dig on former WWE star Hulk Hogan for his post on Facebook which drew some brickbats on social media. Hogan had spoken negatively about the Covid-19 vaccine and alleged that actors Betty White and Sidney Poitier died after getting their doses. The post naturally didn’t go down well as Booker T highlighted that Hogan should refrain from speaking about something that he doesn’t have complete idea about. He also asked one and all to pull him back if they ever find him in such a situation.
“It’s amazing some of the stuff people say when they just don’t know. I really don’t have a whole lot of respect for someone saying something like that, especially when they have no idea what happened to this person or not. Just what we are in the world today. Dammit, it could just be getting old,” Booker T said.
“If you ever find me in that place where I’m saying something stupid and radical, please, I beg you to pull me back because I think that’s got a lot to do with a lot of these old guys going out and saying a lot of stupid stuff. I really do,” he added.
The former WWE star had earlier spoken highly of W. Morrissey, who performed under the ring name Big Cass, for the company. The IMPACT wrestling star had joined the company in 2011 and featured for NXT. He had teamed up with Enzo Amore and the duo made it to the main roster for the company. However, Cass had decided to part ways with the company in 2018, following some issues behind the scenes. Booker T, now, feels that the big buy will be a perfect fit in the WWE roster at the moment and thus wants him to make a comeback for the company.
In 2019, he made his debut under the ring name of CaZXL, for Northeast Wrestling (NEW). However, in 2021, he made a new start with IMPACT wrestling as a replacement for Eric Young in Violent by Design’s match against Chris Sabin, Eddie Edwards, James Storm, and Willie Mack. He had pinned Mack during the contest to register a win for his team. His fine run also continued at Against All Odds as he would go on to defeat Rich Swann in a tussle.
The Big Cazz had joined Big Time Wrestling in 2018 and later wrestled to a loss for the Big Time Wrestling a Tommy Dreamer’s House of Hardcore 51. He also made an appearance at the House of Hardcore 52 but had to be rushed to hospital during the interval due to seizure.
