10. Booker T Discusses Negative Effects Finn Balor Could Face If He Keeps Getting Hurt, Gives An Advice To Charlotte Flair
During a recent edition of the Heated Conversations podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Booker T discussed Finn Balor having a concussion scare last week, Charlotte’s risky corkscrew moonsault & more.
Below is the advice that Booker gave to Charlotte:
“That is the one move that scares me most about Charlotte, is that triple gainer. What do you call it, the moonsault, that corkscrew moonsault. That’s the one thing that scares me about her because that’s a move like when I used to do ‘The Harlem Hangover,’ when I was fresh, I could go out there and do it nine out of 10 times and hit it perfectly. But after a 15-minute brawl, I would go up there and I would have to think about it. I was have to anticipate basically where I needed to land. Now, I think with Charlotte, that’s the one move that would be her downfall if not done properly. And what I mean by properly is pay-per-view only, baby. Do you feel me? You’ve got to make them pay for it. Do you know what I mean? That’s pay-per-view only.
My advice to you now, Charlotte, make sure you know where and when to do all of your big stuff. Do you know what I mean? When you want to debut something big, something new, you do it on TV and then you stop. And you say, ‘on pay-per-view you’re going to see something big. You’re going to see something bigger than that triple gainer.'”
Below is what Booker T had to say about Balor having a concussion scare last week:
“You don’t want to get labeled in this business as being injury prone. Do you know what I mean? ‘This guy, he’s soft!’ Do you know what I mean? You don’t want to get that label. I wasn’t saying Bálor specifically, I’m just saying you don’t want that label in this business as far as being soft, a guy that can’t carry the load, a guy that’s not going to be in for the long haul. That’s what this business is about. And it’s about going out there and being able to weather the storm.”
