• Booker T On If Sting Taking A Powerbomb In AEW Was Warranted
On a new episode of The Hall of Fame podcast, two time WWE Hall of Famer Booker T talked about last week’s AEW Dynamite segment, that had former Impact Wrestling World Heavyweight Champion Brian Cage (who also used to wrestle for WWE’s Pre-NXT developmental territory Florida Championship Wrestling in 2008 & 2009) powerbomb Old School WCW Legend “The Icon” Sting.
This was Sting’s first bump in a professional wrestling ring since his last WWE match in 2015.
You can watch it below:
Here’s what the former Harlem Heat member had to say:
“You want to be a team player, you don’t want to be a guy sitting on the sidelines, sitting on the bench, you want to get in the game.
I know that’s Sting’s mentality, he’s not going to want to go there and just get a pay cheque. Don’t treat me like I’m one of the old guys, he wants to feel like one of the boys.
One of the ways to ingratiate yourself with the boys is to go out and take a big bump, go out there and do something crazy, jump off something. That’s what Sting did, went out and took the biggest bump you could possibly take which was the powerbomb by Brian Cage.
It was a hard bump, definitely one of those bumps after coming off the deal with Seth Rollins he said I want to test myself. Let me test myself, go out here and see if I can still take it at 61 years old.
I know taking a bump like that for me, I’ll be 56 in a couple weeks and I know I’d be in a straight jacket. I can only wonder how he feels today after taking a powerbomb like that.
Was it something that was warranted was my question. My answer is no. Beat me down, all you gotta do is beat me down, I will sell it like a car ran over me.
We would’ve got what we needed out of this deal but for him to actually go and take a powerbomb cold? Because you can’t warm up to take a powerbomb if you haven’t had a match, there ain’t enough stretching in the world.
I may have taken five powerbombs in my career, it’s because I was never one to take one because it was sure going to hurt.
I’ve worked with some of the biggest guys you want to be out there with, Kevin Nash maybe one of the only guys who’s ever given me a powerbomb. He knew how to do it where I wasn’t going to get hurt.
If you ever watch Kevin Nash do a powerbomb to a guy it’s the most beautiful powerbomb you’re ever going to take.
Once you get there, he’ll guide you like a feather to your landing spot.”
