On a recent episode of his weekly ‘Hall of Fame’ podcast, WCW/WWF Legend Booker T talked about the use of catchphrases in main stream professional wrestling and revealed that currently injured WWE Superstar Big E ended up using ‘sucka’ in his promos, a word that was heavily used by Booker himself over the years.

Here’s what the 5-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion had to say:

“I’m still around using sucka, which Big E tried to steal it, and I really didn’t appreciate that.

I really didn’t appreciate Big E trying to steal my catchphrase, while I’m still alive, I’m still in the company, I’m still using it.

Still have to wonder what the hell was he thinking?

You know, because if you wanna step on someone’s toes, you can do it real quick, look at Slaughter.

I could be like Sgt Slaughter, man. Could be really upset. I could stop watching the show.

He’s a sucka, man, because the thing is that I’m original.

I know who to steal it from so they ain’t gonna be complaining about it, I’ll just say that.”

Booker T wrestled for Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling from 1993 until the company was bought by Vince McMahon in March 2001, and jumped ship right away, coming into the World Wrestling Federation as the reigning WCW World Heavyweight Champion a few months later.

He wrestled for the WWF (renamed WWE in May 2002) until 2007 and then joined Dixie Carter’s Total Nonstop Action! (TNA) till late 2009 and eventually returned to WWE in 2011 as a part time wrestler and color commentator, among other non-wrestling roles.
