WWE Hall of Famer Booker T recently spoke with The Roman Show about various topics. During the interview, Booker T was asked about his recent elbow surgery that kept him off of WWE TV for a short time.
“[The] injury was caused by doing the Spin-o-roonie for 20 years. I didn’t realize how much pressure this elbow was taking until that night when I did the move on the hardwood floor.”
Sticking to injuries, several WWE stars have been injured as of late. Booker T believes that the reason there have been so many injuries as of late is because the talents want to up each other.
“The bar is higher. The guys want to one up each other. Wrestling for me the way I trained is of doing the art of watching nothing. These guys raise the bar so much. It’s inevitable. It’s not a matter of if, but it’s a matter of when it’s going to happen. I think they should work smarter, think about the psychology a little more drawing the fans from a Shakespearean, Phantom of the Opera perspective. They can do it a whole a lot safer.”
Ember Moon was a student of Booker T’s before signing with WWE NXT. Booker commented on Moon, who recently made her NXT debut at NXT Takeover: Brooklyn II.
“She’s everything I expected. When she first came to me she was already talented she had the tools. She had to be polished. She had the hunger. She was willing to travel the miles. She was way ahead before she got her. Now she was able to show the world.”
