Booker T on Sasha Banks: "she rubs me the wrong way a little bit, It could be her attitude"



On the latest "Hall Of Fame" podcast, Booker T and Brad Gilmore talk about the WWE Hell in a Cell pay-per-view, Sasha Banks winning the SmackDown Women's Championship, Randy Orton winning the WWE Championship, Khabib Nurmagomedov's retirement from MMA and a lot more.

Booker T talked about his “social media feud” with Sasha Banks: “Look man, I don’t care what people think and what they say about me. That’s my opinion if I like someone or I don’t like them. What if I say I don’t like Sami Zayn? Are they going to blow up the internet? What if I say I don’t like Bayley? Are they going to blow up the internet? What if I say I don’t like you? Are they going to blow up the internet? I mean guys, relax more than anything. Sasha Banks and I is something that her and I have to hash out. This is between us. It’s not between anybody else except Sasha Banks and myself. She said she is a 5-time champ. Great. She is a grand slam champ as well. I give her props. I gave her a test on Talking Smack and she passed. I asked her 'Where does she think she ranks as far as females of all time?' She gave the right answer. She said she is #1, #2, #3, #4, #5 of all time. I could appreciate that. But Sasha Banks, she rubs me the wrong way a little bit, It could be her attitude. The thing is, I’m sure you people out there who perhaps made those comments, I’m sure someone that you’ve met rubs you the wrong way and perhaps is not your favorite person. I did not say I hate her. I said I did not like Sasha. That could mean a lot of things. My thing is this. Sasha Banks and I, that’s between us. Stay in your lane and trust me, you will do a whole lot better for yourself. You don’t want to cross in my lane."

Brad Gilmore commented to Booker T that “I’ve known you for a long time. Sometimes it’s hard to discern what’s Booker T and what’s Booker T (T laughs) and I think that’s where the issue lies for the people online is they don’t know when it’s Booker T and when it’s Booker T, do you know what I’m saying?” T said, “Yea, guys, this is wrestling (and laughs), ok, first and foremost. Hopefully, some young people sending out those tweets that are concerned about the relationship between me and Sasha Banks about whether we are going to make it through 2020, I hope they are very young people, young kids that think stuff like that more than anything. On the real, I appreciate what Sasha Banks does and brings to the table. She’s a special talent. She is better than the majority of the women that play that role and are put in that position. I’m keeping it real. You have to be able to go out and make people feel a certain way. I say that all the time. Sasha has the ability to go out and make you feel a certain way when you watch her perform and is not afraid to throw caution to the wind. She is willing to go out and put it all on the line in the squared circle. I appreciate that. She’s a great storyteller.”
