Booker T surprised by WWE star Karrion Kross not signing with AEW

Karrion Kross, in the opinion of WWE Hall of Famer Booker T, might have been a great addition to AEW, but he turned it down.

Karrion Kross, in the opinion of WWE Hall of Famer Booker T, might have been a great addition to AEW. On SmackDown last week, Kross and his partner Scarlett unexpectedly returned to the organisation. In contrast to many of the other released stars, Kross did not sign with AEW after being released by WWE in November of last year. Instead, before rejoining the organisation, the former NXT Champion made appearances in NJPW and MLW.

Booker T astonished

Speaking on the Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T expressed his astonishment that AEW did not sign Kross and his delight that he had rejoined the organisation. The legend believes that releasing Kross last year was a mistake.

I mean, me personally, I like it, man. I like it a lot. I wasn’t a fan to see Kariron Kross leave WWE because I thought he would be a huge pickup for AEW. I don’t know how that did not come to fruition, him actually being a part of that crew over there. But, I tell you what, I’m, I’m liking it.” — Booker T

According to Booker T, Kross’ return signifies the organization’s decision to prioritise bigger individuals like Roman Reigns, Drew McIntyre, and Bobby Lashley.

When asked why he didn’t join with AEW, Kross said he had discussions about doing so with Tony Khan during an interview on the Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling podcast. According to a recent rumour, Kross turned down a battle with AEW wrestler Wardlow because he prefers to appear in the promotion with his valet and real-life partner Scarlett.
