Would you still remember me?
For I must be traveling on now
‘Cause there’s too many places I’ve got to see!!!!”

Booker T shares his thoughts on Braun Strowman’s release
During the latest edition of the Hall of Fame Podcast, Booker T opened up on the release of Strowman, who recently main evented WWE WrestleMania Backlash against Drew McIntyre and WWE Champion Bobby Lashley.
Booker spoke about how shocked he initially was by the release but later reckoned that the release came up due to Strowman’s high paycheck.
He said: “It definitely made me go wow,” Booker said. “Then I started looking at it from a business perspective, if it’s true, rumors out there saying Braun Strowman had a huge contract, he was making a lot of money. Take nothing away from Braun Strowman, he was an enigma.”
He also spoke about Strowman’s possibility of signing with AEW but Booker T named only some stars he could work with. He said: “There’s like two matches over there for him. Lance Archer, Brian Cage, Miro. There’s two or three guys that Braun Strowman [can face]. Mark Henry.”
