Booker T announced on Twitter that he is pulling out from Starrcast III during All Out weekend. Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer had the following to say on the matter:
“He evidently said when pulling out that he found out the WWE vs. AEW war was very real and he didn’t want to be in the middle of it. I’ve been told to expect another major counter by WWE shortly.”
Booker T noted that he will soon be setting the record straight on why he dropped plans to attend.
I will be setting the record straight within the next 24 hours regarding the story going around about me “pulling out” of @StarrcastEvents.— Booker T. Huffman (@BookerT5x) 5 July 2019
