In the spring of 1997, Booker T cut his most infamous promo, when he accidentally said “Hulk Hogan, we’re comin’ for you, N****”.

During a recent episode of his weekly ‘Hall Of Fame’ podcast, the former 5-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion revealed that he never had any intentions to have a match or an actual rivalry against The Hulkster.

Here’s what Booker T said:

“I never wrestled Hogan, but I never really wanted to wrestle Hogan. I just never thought Hogan and I would have great chemistry. I didn’t see our styles working well together at all.

I didn’t see that match being a classic or anything like that just because Hogan, at that time especially, didn’t do anything but punches.

I could maybe be in a tag team match with him and a partner against Harlem Heat. That might have worked because we would have been the heels and he would have been the babyface.

All he would have to do was sell and make a comeback. Leg drop go home. That might have worked.”

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 worked 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.
