Damn true!he's black and from WCW.
he never stood a chance.
I did not say that but this Company most of the time acknowledge his Samoan bloodline more then his African American one you can not deny that. Booker T is by far the most talented Black wrestler they had theres Shelton Benjamin too but he did not have the charisma but now look what they doing to they black wrestlers they always jiving,rapping,acting like thugs and preaching like pastors thats freaking racist they have something against a Blackman and its been like that for years.Oh, ok...so it's not about a black guy being on top. It has to be a black guy who "acts" like a stereotypical, urban black dude?
yes, I agree...but also agree with 2nd post. No matter what, Triple Hemmorhoid would have buried him somehow.-Mic skills
-Dope entrance music
-5x 5x 5x 5x.
One of the most underutilized talents?
What makes you say that? What makes Booker T not good enough to be the VERY top guy (from 01 to 05)? Did he not look like a top guy? His in ring work? Or his mic work? Cuz all 3 were pretty damn good, he knew how to work a crowd too.He was a 37 year old WCW mid carder who only got pushed when they were circling the drain. Mostly seen as a poor man's version of the Rock.
They wouldn't have gotten anywhere with him. Once you get to the point where you're elevating old tag teamers it's time to start a new and develop some actual young guys. Nothing against Booker he was good enough to get a few reigns under his belt but no he was never top few guy material. He didn't deserve to be in the match at WM 19 yet alone win it. It's the most down the card Raw championship match ever.
I'm not a fan of HHH's endless reign but really it was Angle, Benoit, Jericho, RVD, Guerrero's time to shine not necessarily Booker's. Booker was a fun comedic face who was good enough to win the belt somewhere but no he was never good enough to win the belt long term. That would of had to happen in WCW when it mattered.
