WWE Hall Of Famer Stevie Ray recently appeared on "That 90's Wrestling Podcast" to talk about his time as part of Harlem Heat with his brother Booker T.
Stevie also had a lot to say about Booker's early days in WWE, specifically the supermarket segment he had with Stone Cold Steve Austin during the days of the Alliance-WWE storyline.
Stevie said, "Let’s go back to my brother, you come in, Stone Cold Steve Austin jumps on him and drop him with the belt, the WCW belt, and everyone thought, ‘this is great, this is how it’s going to be.’ Nah, brother, they’re setting you up, it is what it is, they’re getting him ready for the Thanksgiving dinner. "He doesn’t know, but you’re the one that going to get cooked."
Stevie said that his brother was portrayed as "big bad Booker T" in WCW and then all of a sudden he's in WWE and he's put into the grocery store segment with Austin.
Stevie said, "Ain’t nobody in my family ever ran from a man in his life. Ain’t no punk in me, ain’t no b*tch in me. There ain’t no b---h in none of my brothers or my uncles or nobody. I ain’t never ran from one man in my life and never will,” he claimed. “Especially some daisy duke, bald-headed, bad knee, guy that beats up women. You kidding me? You kidding me? I’d slap Steve Austin’s teeth out of his mouth, ain’t no punk like that don’t ever fight a man. Now on TV, I got to run from him, I’m scared of him. Nah, miss me with that. But that’s the way they work, and this is what I told everybody was going to happen."
Stevie also added that he was not surprised by Booker's WWE success but said that his brother had to go through a lot when he was there because WWE has to put their own spin on everything.
Stevie said he didn't go to WWE because "I know how they are" and that WWE wasn't putting time and money into the WCW guys.
