• Booker T Comments On His Issue With nWo’s Hall Of Fame Induction
During a recent edition of his Hall of Fame podcast, two time WWE Hall of Famer Booker T talked about his issue with nWo’s Hall of Fame induction in 2020.
Below is what Booker T said:
“You know what? That’s my beef right there, man. Horace Hogan, Virgil, Scott Norton, Konnan, Buff Bagwell, [The] Giant, [Lex] Luger, Sting. Was Sting in there for a minute? Ted DiBiase, [Eric Bischoff], me. Me! Yeah, I should be getting another ring! Stevie [Ray].
Man, I’ve got to talk to somebody about this. Do you know what? That’s wrong! That’s wrong. Do you know what I mean? And we need to boycott this whole thing! I’m serious. We need a petition because I don’t feel like it’s right! If you [were] a member of the nWo in any shape, form, or fashion, you should be the recipient of a ring at the end of the day because you contributed!
Let me tell you something, man. The nWo was groundbreaking. The nWo created a movement, man. I mean, they stirred it up when they came into WCW. They got the fans riled up to a point where it became toxic and everybody wanted a piece of it, man. Everybody wanted to taste it. And it was cool. It was very, very cool.
Do you know what? If I wasn’t Booker T, I would’ve wanted to be a member of the nWo. I could actually say that because those guys were stone cold cool, man. They had a vibe about themselves that you wanted to be a part of that group.
Well, I mean, you always wondered what Hulk Hogan would look like without the red and yellow on. Everybody always wondered ‘is Hogan going to turn? Is he ever going to the dark side?’ And Hogan, you go back to the Rocky movie, and Thunderlips, there wasn’t a better heel than Thunderlips. And I just think Hulk Hogan, ‘Hollywood’ Hulk Hogan was just Thunderlips in a totally different [genre], so it wasn’t like he couldn’t play the role.
He [has] always been a showman. He [has] always been one of the guys who goes out and performs in the ring and out of the ring behind the mic. Everything about Hulk Hogan was a performance and to tap into that, I thought it was pretty cool.”
