Booker T on what made him leave WWE, Leticia Cline, Turning Point note
On Tuesday, November 27, 2007 at 8:12 PM EST TNA and Spike TV held a conference call with Booker T earlier today. The Wrestling Observer is reporting that when asked about his suspension from WWE, Booker described it as the "straw that broke the camel's back" when it came to making his decision to leave. He also stated he had no idea why his name was on the list for the Signature Pharmacy scandal as he never ordered anything from them and has never ordered anything online with a credit card. Booker felt WWE needed a big name scapegoat at that time and when they didn't protect him, he knew it was time to go.
The Wrestling Observer is also reporting that former TNA Knockout Leticia Cline was on Howard Stern earlier this morning. She was doing phone sex on the show and mentioned she left TNA because she no longer wanted to be there. We've seen reports where she indicated she has been in talks with WWE. Whether that's true or not remains to be seen.
The "TNA: Road to Turning Point" special airs this Saturday at 11:00 p.m. Eastern (10:00 p.m. Central) on Spike TV. The company normally puts up the full show on their website as well if you miss it on TV.
