Booker T shoots on AEW star Adam Cole injury at Forbidden Door after controversial comments

AEW, Booker T, Adam Cole

Booker T has been known as one of the most outspoken figures in pro wrestling today. King Booker has never been shy in speaking his mind before. However, many fans felt he went too far when he commented on AEW star Adam Cole’s physique.

A few days before AEW’s momentous Forbidden Door pay-per-view, Booker T commented on Adam Cole’s body. Here’s what he had to say about the star:

“We gotta get more weight on Adam Cole, you know what I mean? That’s his problem, he’s light, bottom light. We gotta get some muscle on this kid. That’s probably one of the reasons why he’s going out there, getting hurt because it can’t be the schedule at AEW.”

Needless to say, fans and wrestlers didn’t take too kindly to Booker T’s comments. Many blasted him for giving out unsolicited advice to a professional.

Unfortunately, Cole suffered a devastating injury during the Forbidden Door event. During the four-way match between him, Okada, White, and Page, the AEW star landed badly while taking a bump. It was then revealed that Cole suffered a shoulder injury AND a serious concussion.

Amid all this talk, Booker T once again spoke his mind on the topic. This time, though, he was more sympathetic to the AEW star. Booker T pointed out that injuries like Cole’s are part of the business, and that concussions could happen to anyone. According to him: (via WhatCulture)
