• “Man, you should be main eventing WrestleMania” – Booker T To RAW Wrestler
During an interview with FOX Sports, new WWE Champion Bobby Lashley revealed what two time WWE Hall of Famer Booker T said to him before a show.
Lashley had a rivalry with Booker T in 2006, culminating at the Judgment Day 2006 PPV in the final of the King of the Ring tournament, a match that Booker T won (after Finlay interfered) and became known as “King Booker” that night.
Here’s what Bobby had to say about their above mentioned conversation:
“Booker came on and said it one time on one of the pre-shows, he was like, ‘Man, you should be main eventing. I don’t know what you’re doing right now, but I don’t know why they don’t have Bobby main eventing WrestleMania’. Booker said that.
To me, that meant the world, because I have so much respect for Booker. I have so much respect for a lot of the guys that I came up and first worked with, like JBL and Booker, some of those guys, so I’ve been hearing some really good words from some of those guys and those words really resonated in me and let me realize to stop just having fun.”
