On this week’s post-WrestleMania edition of “The Hall of Fame” podcast, Booker T gave his thoughts on Sharmell’s Hall of Fame induction and how he felt about Kevin Owens and Steve Austin at WrestleMania.
Booker talking about Sharmell going into the WWE Hall of Fame:
“Behind the scenes, they took care of my Queen Sharmell like gold, like she was on her way in the back of the Brinks truck, trying to get it through safe passages to that place.”
He continued, “My Queen, she rocked it man. She went out there and she represented the Huffman family oh so well. I was just a wing man. I was just a fly on the wall getting the chance to enjoy the festivities like everybody else.”
Booker’s thoughts on Kevin Owens and Steve Austin at WrestleMania:
“Kevin Owens man, he deserves an Oscar for the work that he put in on that night. Seriously,” Booker said.
“Kevin Owens, and I’ve said it for a long time now that he is one of the best guys on the roster. He is what professional wrestling is. He is what a professional wrestler does.”
“When I watched the beginning of that thing, and I don’t want to give any of our tricks away or anything like that, but when I watched the beginning of that match, I just watched the magic of Kevin Owens. Stone Cold Steve Austin definitely played his part. He played his part very, very well. But for me, if I was coming back to do a match, it definitely would be a guy like Kevin Owens or a guy like Seth Rollins,” he said.
“I need one of those types of guys that knows what this business truly is. I can’t speak highly enough about that veteran Kevin Owens going out there and taking care of business the way he did and Stone Cold Steve Austin for sucking it up and giving that crowd in Dallas, Texas where he started his career. He went out there and did it like a champ and I commend him for it.”
