Booker T believes former WWE superstars, who now work for AEW, could experience side effects. He mentioned how Mark Henry appeared to be upset last week after Sasha Banks and Naomi walked out during a “WWE Raw” episode. Viewers were arguing whether Corey Graves’ commentary was correct because he said that Banks and Naomi walked out unprofessionally.
My issue was with people on the show saying that was unprofessional, Henry said. Because I’m going to tell you right now, if that was my wife and I’m working on that show, I’m walking down to the announce table.
Commentators in WWE often have their lines fed to them by the head of the company, Vince McMahon. They are often defending themselves on social media. Carmella’s husband, Booker T, has gone on record that he was fed his line.
It seems like going to AEW just makes you forget about how the business really works, he said. I’m 100 percent sure Mark Henry knows that what comes out of Corey Graves’ mouth is something that he was told to actually say … Especially when it’s something to that magnitude, I wouldn’t imagine that’s his personal opinion.
Booker believes that Henry must have realized Corey Graves was in charge of the operation and associated with those in power. Henry’s reaction, Booker claims, was “shocking”.
Mark knows better than that, Booker said. Then again, if Jimmy [Uso, Naomi’s husband] was to do something like that, so Jimmy goes to the announce table and he gets fired that same night as well, that makes no sense to me. I would think Mark knows that … I don’t know if it’s just to get their internet buzz or anything like that, but Mark knows better than that, and to hear that it’s shocking more than anything.
