• Booker T Says AJ Styles Is At His Best Right Now
During a recent appearance on Sam Roberts’ Wrestling Podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Booker T talked about making it in the locker room before making it in the ring, current WWE Champion AJ Styles & more.
Below are the highlights:
On making it in the locker room before making it in the ring:
“I was willing to take a back seat. You’ve got to be willing to, and I tell my students this all the time, you’ve got to make it in the locker room before you ever have a chance of making it in the ring. And I’m for real when I say that right there. When I got to WWE, I knew how talented I was and I was willing to go out there and prove myself in the ring by going out there and having five-star matches on a nightly basis. But, I was willing to go through the character-building as well.”
On AJ Styles’ transition from TNA to WWE:
“When I look at a guy like AJ Styles, he’s a perfect example of somebody who left everything behind and came to WWE and picked it up and come to WWE in a-whole-nother level. AJ Styles, right now at this point in his career, he’s better than he has ever been. And all the stuff that we’ve seen AJ Styles do in the past, as far as his in-ring prowess, he’s better now as a performer than he has ever been and he can do a whole lot less. Do you know what I mean? And that’s my thing. I was willing to fit in, take that script and make it the best I possibly could.”
On being optimistic about future performers in WWE:
“I praise guys like Elias, going out there doing their thing, Jason Jordan, right now, man, I’m sick about Jason Jordan being on the shelf. I wanted to see him go out and have his WrestleMania moment. Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens, rising from the ashes of what he was doing, the independent scene for 15 years. The Finn Bálors of the world that I’ve seen do remarkable, spectacular things. With Neville many, many years ago. I’m very optimistic, man. These guys, they’re talent. That’s truly what these guys are. I see the independent world moving.”
