Booker T talks about Enzo Amore's firing from WWE Submitted by Aaron Rift on 02/02/2018 at 06:29 PM
During his recent podcast, Booker T talked about the recent rape allegations against Enzo Amore:
“Here’s the thing, these allegations come out on Enzo Amore, rape allegations. It’s very, very serious. We know a lot of people that had rape allegations, case in point, Tupac Shakur, case in point, Mike Tyson, and so many more. If you put yourself in a position for this type of situation to happen, it can happen. Just like with Mike Tyson. He was in a hotel room with a female, a young female that was actually in a beauty pageant. For this to drop on one of the biggest days ever, RAW 25, it was bad timing, first and foremost, and the thing is, from what I’ve been reading, the straw was him not letting anyone know that that happened. My thing is this, after what happened with Rich Swann, I would’ve ran to the office and said, ‘Hey, can I talk to somebody because there’s some news out there that might come up and y’all might not want to do anything with me as far as champions?’ That right there, being put in that position hurts even more. Suspension these days, you don’t come back from suspension. That’s just a term these days until your contract’s up.”
Booker T continued, "Now, with this situation, I'm going to tell you guys, it's a lot of allegations involved with this thing here, talking about drugs being involved with it. You can become a star overnight, guys. You can be on the street walking one day and you're on your way to the corner diner, and you had to hitch a ride to get there. And the next day, you can be a huge star, money coming at you from right and left. And you've got to know how to handle that situation." Booker demanded, "guys, do not put yourself in a position for something like that to happen to you. And the thing is, don't think for one minute that Booker T hasn't been in situations like this before myself. I've been in situations where it could have been make or break situations to where if I made this choice as opposed to making that choice, I could be in the same position as Enzo Amore."
