• Old School WWF Veteran Celebrates His Birthday

• Booker T Comments On Lio Rush Thinking He’s A Big Star In WWE
Lio Rush is dealing with backstage heat in WWE. During a recent edition of the Hall of Fame podcast, two time WWE Hall of Famer Booker T said the following regarding Rush’s heat:
“He has been in a good position, working with Bobby Lashley. It seems like he would be on top of the world in that position. But, sometimes, you can start believing in your own press clippings.
One thing about WWE – it’s their show. If you learn how to work inside ‘the game’ and know how to get in and stay in ‘the game,’ at the end of the day, you make a lot of money. I just don’t know when people stop thinking about the endgame.
Guys in WCW thought they were really big stars until the doors closed. Then they had to find work somewhere else. A lot of those guys never worked in a major company ever again. You know why? It wasn’t about them. There are so many guys looking to take that spot that you have.
If you’re in a position to make as much money as you can and you’re worried about what someone else is doing…it just confuses me. I hope he can get the heat off of him because he’s very talented. Great talker as well as a great worker. There’s money there for this guy to be making for a long time.
Lio, get your game right.”
