Re: Booker T: Matt Riddle Needs to Improve

So let me get this straight, its mostly considered coolwhen Matt Riddle randomly shits on Goldberg out the blue for no reason. But Booker is old and bitter for randomly saying Matt Riddle has things to work on.

If you can dish it out you should be able to take it.

Re: Booker T: Matt Riddle Needs to Improve

The fact that Booker T thinks he was ever a top five talent in wrestling tells you a lot about his statement on Riddle.

Booker is telling him to learn how to pro wrestle. While I disagree with Booker's opinion, Matt Riddle being a former UFC fighter has nothing to do with his ability to do pro wrestling.

Re: Booker T: Matt Riddle Needs to Improve

I don't know where this is coming from that Booker T was some amazing in-ring performer, he was good for sure but he was never top five, not even top ten at his peak.

What's Booker T's best match ?





All Time Favorites: 1.)Steve Austin 2.)Adam Cole 3.)Chris Jericho
Currents: TUE, Moxley, Naito, Bryan, Ziggler, SANADA, Ripley, Lacey & Royce.

Re: Booker T: Matt Riddle Needs to Improve

It's hilarious reading people's comments giving Booker static over Matt fucking Riddle. Seriously Riddle is very good but he can get boring as fuck really quick especially if you aren't into the superfluous grappling that goes into most MMA based in-ring styles. People need to remember that pro wrestling and MMA aren't the same things. At one point in time, Booker was as highly regarded as an in-ring talent as you could find among North America based wrestlers and on top of that found a great number of ways to be wildly entertaining and immensely popular among a fairly large audience(compared to today's audience it would have been a gigantic audience. I'd take prime Booker over Matt Riddle any day of the week and I like Riddle. There are some gaping holes in Riddle's game especially from a pure entertainment perspective and he needs to become better at selling for sure. He can get those things done and then he'll do well in WWE. I mean Riddle can criticize anyone he wants it's his prerogative but Goldberg's in-ring prowess is an easy target especially at his current age but until Riddle achieves even 1% of Goldberg's success it just comes across as some goof trying to get over with the so-called "smart" fans and in reality that is all it really is.

Re: Booker T: Matt Riddle Needs to Improve

The level of DISRESPECT shown by you marks blow my fuckin' mind. Yo, I guess since yo boy Meltzer (the biggest mark) does it, then you guys think that you can do it too. No, the fuck you can't.

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.
The negro never mentioned the PWI 500 ranking. Book doesn't like Meltzer, so please get that idea out of your head.

Re: Booker T: Matt Riddle Needs to Improve

Being a former MMA Fighter doesn't guarantee you will be a great pro wrestler. Tank Abbott is proof of that...of course being a former pro wrester doesn't mean you're going to be a great MMA fighter either.... CM PUNK is proof of that...LMAO

The PWI 500 has nothing to do with the wrestling observer or Dave Meltzer...smh They are a completely different organization. SMH
