WWE Hall of Famer Lobbying Hard for Jacob Fatu

Is Jacob Fatu coming to the WWE? Two-time WWE Hall of Famer Booker T is lobbying hard to get the talented wrestler into the WWE. Speaking on his Hall of Fame podcast, Booker revealed:

“That’s my game plan, man. That’s my game plan. I’m working as hard as I possibly can. Let me just say it right now. I’m giving a big shout out to Jacob Fatu. This is a guy who’s been working his ass off out there on the indie scene, grinding. The thing is, sometimes we make mistakes, but when we atone for those mistakes, that’s when somebody just needs to give you a chance, and for me, someone gave me a chance and look what it's done for me. Someone needs to give Jacob Fatu a chance and I’m going to be working in his corner as his advisor to get him all the way to that next level and over it if we possibly can. Jacob, if you’re listening to this, just stick with me on this ride.”

Jacob Fatu Talks Working in the WWE

Working in the WWE is a major career goal for many wrestlers and Jacob Fatu is no different. Fatu spoke with Bullet Cast last April about heading to the WWE:

Do I want to be there? Yeah, absolutely, but then again, I didn’t expect to be at MLW this long. It’s really in God’s hands. I’m thankful for it. I watch my brothers every day. Like Roman and my brothers say, they always call and tap in. They can say this and that about the family. Everyone is human. I love what they’re doing. That feeling of what they’re doing is real. If you ask me, it’s God’s timing. I’m going to leave it at that. There ain’t no telling.
