Booker T Gives His Opinion On If Gimmicks Are Backdated

Two times WWE Hall of Famer Booker T who is the former five times WCW World Heavyweight champion and a former WWE World Heavyweight Champion recently gave opinion if gimmicks are a thing of the past.

Gimmick and professional wrestling had a big connection between each other. Give me a very important thing of professional wrestling in the past. But nowadays giving are not much seen in any professional wrestling promotion. Wrestlers are mostly seen in straight forward characters, mostly portraying their real life role.

Booker T Gives His Opinion On If Gimmicks Are Backdated

Since the last decade we do not see enough gimmicks in professional wrestling. There was a time when gimmicks were very important things in professional wrestling. Wrestlers like The Undertaker and Kane became mostly famous because of their amazing gimmicks. But these type of gimmicks are very difficult to see nowadays. Even the independent promotions do not propose such ideas. Even though there are a few like “The Demon” Finn Balor.

But it is very difficult these days where fans could experience fiction like gimmicks. Like the gimmick of Papa Shango, it might have been a failure back then, such gimmicks are nearly impossible to see now a days. Wrestlers these days like to perform more realistic characters and the professional wrestling promotion do not want them to play fiction gimmicks either.

Booker T who is the former five times WCW World Heavyweight champion recently during a episode of the Hall of Fame Podcast gave opinion if gimmicks are a thing of the past. He said;

“I was talking about something last week, and I said gimmicks are pretty much the thing of the past. But I always say also, there’s a place for something like that on the show, but there can only be one. Everybody cannot be a gimmick as far as the overall show.

“It’s not gonna work if every wrestler….it would look like cartoon or circus. But if you’ve got that one guy like The Undertaker – you just can’t have the whole roster looking like a gimmick. The same thing with the performance.

“You just can’t play haha all the time and get in the ring and expect the fans to take you serious if you don’t switch gears. You can do haha, but when you get in the ring, haha goes out the window. I say that because it’s professional wrestling. The most athletic guy may not be the most over guy because this is entertainment.”

Booker T On Why WWE Does Not Work With Wrestling Promotions

Two times WWE Hall of Famer Booker T who is also a former five times WCW World Heavyweight champion and a former WWE World Heavyweight Champion recently revealed why WWE did not work with any other wrestling promotions.

WWE is the only major wrestling promotion in the world of professional wrestling which does not work with any other professional wrestling promotion and does not allow their wrestlers to work in for any other wrestling promotions either. But all other wrestling promotions work with each other.

Booker T On Why WWE Does Not Work With Wrestling Promotions

But this has not been the case in WWE forever. We have seen WWE working with other wrestling promotions before the Attitude Era started. We have seen WWE working with Lucha Libre AAA World Wide in Royal Rumble 1997. A total of four wrestlers from the promotion appeared in the Royal Rumble match of 1997, one of them being the legendary Mil Mascaras.

But other wrestling promotions keep on working with each other. For a recent example we have seen Kenny Omega holding both AEW World Championship and the impact World Heavyweight Championship at the same time. All other professional wrestling promotion work with each other except of WWE.

Booker T who is also a former five times WCW World Heavyweight champion recently spoke on a recent episode of his Hall of Fame podcast where he revealed why WWE did not work with any other wrestling promotions. He said;

“I think contractually, it would be hard to do it over a long period of time with your roster. One or two guys, three or four guys that you want to use in matches, I don’t know. That might work out but having the whole roster work with somebody, I can’t see that happening. I can’t see WWE doing that.

Booker T
Booker T. Image Credits: Twitter

“Even Reality of Wrestling, I can’t see Reality of Wrestling working with another group long term because I’m trying to create my own thing.

“These are my wrestlers. We’re trying to create a storyline and go on this path and make sure our guys stay in this position. It’s hard to do that when you’re working with so many groups.  Who’s going to win?  Who’s going to beat who?

“It could be a can of worms trying to do something like that. I could be wrong.  That’s just my opinion. AEW is doing it pretty well working with Impact, but if you notice, just like I said, they’re only working with Impact with about 3 or 4 guys.”

Booker T Points Out The difference Between AEW/WWE Battle And The Monday Night Wars

Two times WWE Hall of Famer Booker T who is a former five time WCW World Heavyweight champion recently appointed out the difference between the battle between AEW & WWE and WWE and WCW from the 1990s.

The AEW is the newest Rivals of WWE and it looks like the newly founded promotion did not come to the world of professional wrestling just to be a secondary promotion to WWE. They are here to compete with WWE and be the best. They have signed some of the biggest names of professional wrestling today, the very day they signed CM Punk it was quite clear that WWE is going to have a tough competition.

Booker T Points Out The difference Between AEW/WWE Battle And The Monday Night Wars

But how different was this rivalry from the monday night wars? If we look closely, the rivalry is were quite similar from some aspects. AEW and WCW had a lot of things common in themselves. WCW brought in all the talents that were once created by WWE, from Hulk Hogan to Macho Man Randy Savage. We only big names that WCW created were Sting and Goldberg. During that time WWE depended on their homegrown talents.

AEW is doing quite a same thing. They have brought in all the big names from WWE and all their main event starts right now are created by WWE. They have not been able to make any big stars yet. However, there are stars who have shown high potentials, such as Derby Allin. But they are relying more on the big names that were created by WWE. Once again WWE is trying to rely on their homegrown talents.

Booker T who is a former five time WCW World Heavyweight champion recently spoke on his Hall of Fame Podcast where he appointed out the difference between the battle between AEW & WWE and WWE and WCW from the 1990s. He said;

“What I see different in this war than the war that went on back with WCW in the 90s is a bunch of these guys now, nowhere near past their prime or anything like that. All of these guys are really young guys.

Booker T

“It’s not like a bunch of old guys coming over, taking a spot from one of the younger guys, or anything like that. When it happened back in the day, it was Hogan, Savage, Warrior, all of those guys were well into their 40s.

“Now guys are leaving in their 20s. That’s what is different about this war. AEW is building their roster with guys that people still want to see today.”

Booker T Thinks Walter Should Be Given The Honour To Dethrone Roman Reigns

Two times WWE Hall of Famer Booker T who is a former five times WCW World Heavyweight champion and also a former WWE World Heavyweight Champion recently gave his opinion on who should dethrone The Mighty Roman Reigns. He believes the former WWE NXT UK champion Walter should be handed the honour.

WWE always wanted to put Roman Reigns as the face of WWE. He was the prime choice of Vince McMahon to replace John Cena. And you know what happens when WWE decides to push an individual; they started over pushing Reigns. Quite naturally the fans could not take this over pushing anymore and they started to hate him. A similar thing happened with John Cena as well, but Cena managed the situation very well, which Reigns failed to.

Booker T Thinks Walter Should Be Given The Honour To Dethrone Roman Reigns

WWE finally decided to turn Reigns heel. This trick worked as fans started to like Reigns. And this is what WWE actually wanted. As soon as fans started to back him, WWE started over pushing him once again. This time he was on top of everyone. Since winning the WWE Universal Championship at Payback pay per view event last year nobody could get the title away from him. He has been undefeated in 2021 sofa and nobody could beat him yet.

But there has to be someone who would beat this undefeated streak of Roman Reigns and take the title away from him. Two times WWE Hall of famer Booker T had and interesting name in his mind to do the honour.

Walter

He thinks the former WWE NXT UK champion Walter should be given the opportunity to dethrone Reigns. Walter who has been extremely impressive in his NXT UK run is currently one of the best rookies in NXT right now. Booker already praised the Austrian professional wrestler for a number of times before.

Booker T who is a former five times WCW World Heavyweight champion and also a former WWE World Heavyweight Champion recently spoke on the recent edition of his Hall of Fame podcast where he said that the former WWE NXT UK champion Walter should be handed the honour. He said;

Walter

“For me, I’ve been talking about this for a minute now, to beat Roman Reigns you gotta really make that a moment. I always say with moments, you only get a chance to have it one time and it goes away pretty much as far as these kind of situations. Undertaker’s streak being broken, stuff like that. For me, you look at Brock Lesnar. Could he be the guy? Of course.”

“But for me, I’m looking to make somebody. I’m looking to make somebody in big fashion, in a huge way. And there again, man I look at that kid WALTER and I say he’s a star. He’s what wrestling is today. He’s international, he can bring so many eyes to American professional wrestling from that side of the world.

“It’s not gonna be funny. I look at this thing almost like the UFC does with that Ciryl Gane and Francis Ngannou matchup coming up. There’s gonna be a lot of eyes on that thing, there’s gonna be a lot of money made. At the end of the day, if we’re not looking at it that way, we’re just gonna have another match and we’re gonna just flip the title, we’re gonna lose.”

Booker T Talks About NXT 2.0

Two times WWE Hall of Famer Booker T who is also a former five times WCW World Heavyweight champion and a former WWE World Heavyweight Champion recently talked about the rebirth of NXT. He said that he is really loving the new NXT.

WWE has changed the style of the NXT for a month and it is going quite well so far. A lot of NXT fans did not like the idea of a repackaging. A number of fans were even saying rest in peace NXT. Actually, nobody knew what was coming. But the negativity of the fans were quite high as the show was being taken over by Vince McMahon, and he did not have a very good reputation of booking good matches or shows recently.

Booker T Talks About NXT 2.0

But the product got cleared after the very first episode of the NXT 2.0. It was pretty much cleared that WWE would focus on home grown talents more than big names coming from the independent promotions. The whole product of WWE is quite same right now. They are going to take the same product that they used during the Monday night wars and that is focusing on the home grown talents more.

A lot of fans and critics were saying that the WWE is scared with the growth of their latest competition the AEW. The promotion has signed some of the biggest names in sports entertainment today including the likes of Bryan Danielson and CM Punk. Really there in the pole position to give competition to WWE. And with the recent reputation of the promotion it would be very interesting to see how they manage to deal with this situation.

Booker T who is also a former five time WCW World Heavyweight champion and a former WWE World Heavyweight Champion recently on the latest edition of his Hall of Fame podcast talked about the rebirth of NXT. He said that he is really loving the new NXT. He said;

“I’m really digging where NXT is going right now. It’s a totally different vibe. It’s a totally different show. It’s something that I always thought NXT should be. I think what this has done more than anything is it’s giving those guys that’s ready to come up out of that system and get them put in the main roster storylines immediately.

“The only thing that it’s going to do for me is give those more people to work with. That’s what we’re talking about with WWE more than anything is we’ve seen everybody pretty much work with each other. It’s pretty much a cycle like washing your clothes. Now with all of the influx of the NXT talent going straight to the main roster, I think this is going to be a game changer. I like it.

Booker T
Booker T. Image Credits: Twitter

“There’s been a lot of guys in NXT that have been ready to go for quite some time. Those guys have been, I wouldn’t say fronting NXT, but they have been a main part of the star power. For those guys to be on the main roster is the place a lot of those guys should have been a long time ago. I was talking about guys like Tomasso Ciampa and should he move to the main roster?

“I say Tomasso Ciampa is like a player/coach. He’s a guy that fits perfectly in NXT. Some guys, say for instance, The Hit Row, these guys are stars as well as they can be put in situations where they can make somebody else look good at the same time. My thing is certain guys and other guys, you have to look at them totally differently.”

Booker T Speaks On Bobby Lashley’s Future

Two times WWE Hall of Famer Booker T who is a former five time WCW World Heavyweight champion and also a former WWE World Heavyweight Champion recently talked about the future of the former WWE champion Bobby Lashley.

When Bobby Lashley started in WWE career back in 2005, he was instantly portrayed as a big thing. He even won the ECW World Championship during the time when it seriously meant something. But soon WWE realised the push for Laahley is too early and they let him go for the time. Lashley went to different promotions to gain more maturity.

Booker T Speaks On Bobby Lashley’s Future

In 2018, Lashley returned to WWE after having a wonderful spell outside of the WWE. He first worked as an upper mid card. He got two WWE Intercontinental Championship runs. On the first occasion he snatched the title away from Dean Ambrose, and on the next one, he defeated Finn Balor to win the title. But he dropped the title in only one month time to Finn Balor when he faced in at Wrestlemania 35.

Earlier this year, WWE decided to push him as the face of Monday Night RAW when he defeated the Miz for the WWE championship who cash in his Money in the Bank contract on the previous champion Drew McIntyre. Laahley had an amazing run as a champion. He remained undefeated at WrestleMania 37 against Drew McIntyre as well. He finally dropped the title just a number of weeks ago to Big E cashed in his Money in the Bank contract on him.

Booker T who is a former five time WCW World Heavyweight champion recently during his Hall of Fame Podcast talked about the future of the former WWE champion Bobby Lashley. He said;

Bobby Lashley

“First of all, unless your certain people, you’re never gonna be the guy at the top of the card all the time. That’s just not gonna happen. You’re gonna find yourself in the upper midcard and whatnot. But a guy like Bobby, he’s what I call a made man. Over this last year, Bobby has done the best work I’ve ever seen him do in the business thus far.

“He’s put himself in a place as a star and go-to-guy, especially with MVP at his side. That’s the one caveat with this whole thing. MVP just underwent knee surgery and we know he’s gonna be out for a while. The question is gonna be, is Bobby Lashley gonna be a totally different Bobby Lashley without MVP by his side for a few months?

Bobby Lashley

“I don’t think Bobby is gonna have a problem staying in his position. There again, you’ve gotta look at the roster. Who do I put in Bobby Lashley’s spot? Who’s gonna get me more bang for my buck other than Bobby?

“You can’t look too many places, you really cant. I’m not just saying that because I like Bobby and he’s a friend or anything like that. I always say, I look at the guys on the roster and could they match up with me, could they size up with me, could they go out and pull weight like me?

“I would always say, most of the time, I don’t think so. I think right now, that’s where Bobby is. You look at the roster and you look at Bobby. Who you gonna pick? You’re gonna pick Bobby Lashley…..Bobby was built properly this last run. You just go wow. Definitely, I think Bobby is gonna find himself back in that spot.”

He won the WWE Tag Team Championship a total of six times, and he also won the WWE Intercontinental Championship 2 times in total.

He stayed with WWE for a decade and he was quite famous in the promotion. But he was quite frustrated with the way the promotion was beating him resulting him asking for his release in 2016. He was granted his request and he was released from WWE in 2016.

“You know, I can tell you this. I can tell you this. I’m not sure exactly what the reaction meant or anything like that. But I do know this. In this business, you got good heat. You got bad heat. You got go away heat. I don’t know which one was that. I don’t know if the fans — I don’t know if Cody Rhodes did anything on television to become a heel.

“I know everything that Cody’s been doing on television as far as AEW has been pretty lacking as far as what the fans would want. I think! I could be wrong. I haven’t been watching every show or anything like that. But there again, it could be the best reaction in the world if he’s going to be that heel that people are going to love to hate.

“There again, I don’t know if that’s what it was. I don’t know if it was go-away heat like, now you’re Hollywood. You’re like the pot calling the kettle black. One of those type of deals. I don’t know. We’ll see in the end as far as how this thing plays out.

“Hey bro, it might be the best thing that could happen to him. Sometimes you slip on a banana peel, and it could be the best banana you ever had in your life. I’m serious man. So, you just go with it sometimes. We’ll see how this thing plays out.”

Promos are a very important part of professional wrestling. To become successful in professional wrestling a wrestler has to be as good on mic as in wrestling as well. It was not very important in the past but good promos are very important in the world of professional wrestling today. Not everyone is capable of cutting good promo but it is very important.

Booker T Names The Best Wrestler In Mic Right Now

All the biggest names in professional wrestling had excellent mic skills. The first actual face of WWE was Bruno Sammartino, in his time mic skill was not very important. The next face of WWE had been Hulk Hogan who had excellent mic skills. Except of that, Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock, The Undertaker, Kane, Triple H, Shawn Michaels, all of these wrestlers had been amazing on mic during their time.

Booker T

Now it is it is still very much important to be good on mic. The post Attitude Era face of WWE was John Cena who was one of the best workers on mic. The current face of WWE is WWE Universal champion Roman Reigns who has been the weakest performer on mic among all the faces of WWE. This is why Paul Heyman had been teaming up with him so he could speak on behalf of him.

“I can’t lie to you.  The best promo guy right now in the whole damn world is MJF. He’s good. He’s so good. He’s so believable.

“He sounds like one of those promos from back in the day where you get caught up in just looking at the guy’s eyes. The feel of the promo makes you go, ‘Good God, man.’

“This guy is really good. You can tell it’s natural just having the feel of which route to go during his promos. I give that guy a whole lot of credit. Damn good promo guy, MJF.”

“He says, ‘Take a minute and just look around.’ I slowed my walk and got it. I don’t know if people realize, but it’s a very stressful job being a sports entertainer. A lot of times there are nerves and stress levels and to be the best it puts on a lot of stress levels. If you take a deep breath and calm down and remember it’s about having fun.

“That’s what happened with the King and Queen gimmick. Booker and I were able to have fun and that translates. It makes the fans feel something. Whether they want to cheer or boo you, it makes them feel. That’s where the magic comes from.”
