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.
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;
“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.”
