Hall Of Famer Booker T Says Kenny Omega Winning Impact World Title Does Nothing For Impact Wrestling

“I don’t know what Impact is thinking right now. Maybe they’re thinking about the rub. It’s a cool moment for AEW, it’s not a cool moment for Impact wrestling unless I own both companies and I was working the fans at the same time with both of my companies. For Rich Swann to go out and lose the title to Kenny Omega, it does absolutely nothing in my opinion [for Impact].”

Booker T went on to say on his Podcast that if it was his company he would not take the same approach when it came to booking the Impact World Title match.

“Bottom line. If the champion gets beat, which is supposed to be your franchise player, your number one guy and then he goes out and gets beat. I could be wrong, but for me, if it was my company, something like that wouldn’t have gone down. That’s just me.”

    I love Booker T, but he takes A LONG TIME to say VERY LITTLE. I gave up on his show.

    @Taxx He really does lol. I LOVE hearing him talk about the old days (as things were starting to close up and the locker rooms were starting to get their craziest before they calmed down lol).

    That said, I agree with Booker on this. Casual wrestling fans don’t really exist anymore outside of children who don’t know any better. The rest of the wrestling fans that stuck around after WWE took over have become active online fans or went away altogether. And those same kids that watch casually now are getting more active online than we ever did.

    My point is that TNA / Impact had it’s moment in the sun and then it fell off a cliff….hitting every single rock on the way down. They’re not going to get new eyes onto the product outside of may e one or two episodes, because most everyone has already turned away from that company previously.

    Rich Swann was not and never will be a credible champion. Kenny gave him the best match of his career and elevated the title.
