Booker T wishes he was a top five star.

Re: Booker T: Matt Riddle Needs to Improve

I wish Book would've detailed what's wrong with his game, without specifics it seems like he's just hating. I think Riddle needs to improve his psychology, selling and pacing, develop a character and learn to cut a promo, but I'm not a 2 time HOFer so it doesn't mean much when I say it.

Matt Riddle might not do flips but he's still a spot monkey, he can chain together a bunch of cool looking moves but there's no story there. To be fair, the same could be said about every lauded workrate guy today, that's the style Indy fans want to see and he's good at it. If Book went in on Riddle he'd have to go in on everybody's favorite guys and that would turn the IWC against him.

Booker T needs to get his head examined.

Riddle does need to do a lot of work though. He's right on that. Riddle has great potential provided he doesnt get into trouble of any kind.

Re: Booker T: Matt Riddle Needs to Improve

There's always room for improvement, maybe what Booker T wants is for Riddle to adopt that WWE style even more. Nothing wrong with Riddle picking fights in social media, as long as there's a payoff which leads to a match. But the problem is, if it's not going to lead to anything, then that's just a waste of time or he could be practicing his promos by doing that. Not sure what Booker T is on though, maybe Booker T vs. Matt Riddle at some point?


...Beware of he who would deny you access to information, for in his heart he dreams himself your master.

I like Riddle but I don't get the logic here. Booker wasn't critiquing his grappling or amateur wrestling. Being a former MMA fighter doesn't mean you'll be a great pro wrestler.

You think there were 29 workers better than prime Booker T? Please list them.

Re: Booker T: Matt Riddle Needs to Improve

Did this n!gga really point out his PWI 500 ranking? What kind of mark shit is that?


Comments like Book's are confusing. If he feels this "kid" has a lot of work to do but, hypothetically, Steve Austin feels this "kid" is ready and they need to strap a rocket to him, well what the fuck? It comes off as being bitter rather than offering objective advice. It's clear Book is trying to bury him due to his comments on Goldberg but it's weird to use your status to justify your perspective, as if there's no one more accomplished than you that actually feels this "kid" is doing great.

I can do that if you want lol Booker wouldn't even be in my top 50

Unless you mean pick a prime year for Booker and 29 better for that one year. Then maybe he could crack the top 25

Re: Booker T: Matt Riddle Needs to Improve

He’s not wrong. Something isn’t clicking with Matt Riddle in the ring and it’s clear he tries to edge too close to his mma background than to adapt it to wrestling. He’s not bad, but he is nowhere near a top hand yet.

Thanks for the wonderful memories Ultimate Warrior... happy you got to be recognised as the legend you are before you went. Rest in peace
