This week on Booker T’s “Hall Of Fame” podcast, he reviews SummerSlam 2020. He also talks about the big news of the week including Renee Young’s departure from WWE, the return of Roman Reigns and more.
Here are some highlights:
Booker’s comments on Renee Young: “I want to thank Renee Young. Renee is special. She is not going to have to worry about a check coming in the mail or anything like that. She’s been working on her game for many years and finally, she is at a point where she knows what she brings to the table. Anybody that snatches Renee Young up, they are going to be very lucky to have her on that team because that is who she is. She is a team player.”
Booker’s opinion on the Keith Lee vs Karrion Kross match from NXT TakeOver: “Two guys, two big guys, two bonafide heavyweights went out and had a heavyweight match up. There again, Karrion Kross showed his toughness separating his shoulder early in the match and toughened it out and finished it because he knew exactly what was on the line. Big props to Keith Lee who is moving up to the main roster. I’m a fan of the throwback wrestler. 2020 could be the year of the big guy. I loved it when there were two big guys fighting going back and forth and then wrestling came into play. A big suplex or a big side slam or powerslam, whatever. That part of wrestling always drew me in. Wrestling today man, one of the things that kills me with wrestling today, and I’m going to say it. I’m going to spit some lyrics right now. I know they may not want me to talk about it. That damn leg pop is the damn vain of my existence. It really is. I’m sick of these wrestlers that go out and misuse the art. I’m going to leave it at that. I’m not going to go past that but that damn leg pop and you all know what I’m talking about.”
