Booker T: “Roman Reigns is the most believable guy in the business right now”

Booker T and Brad Gilmore gave a WWE TLC preview on the latest “Hall Of Fame” podcast. They also recapped AEW Dynamite and Booker talked about today’s wrestling lacking believability.

Here are some highlights:

Booker T said today’s wrestling is lacking believability: “The one word that comes to my mind is believability. That one word right there, believability. The promo that Dusty Rhodes cut on Ric Flair talking about hard times, I’m getting goosebumps right now. The thing is, Dusty Rhodes was promoting getting people inside of that arena. He made the textile worker who did not have a dime say I have to find $10 to get me a ticket. He made that auto worker who was out of a job who got kicked in the butt, whose computer took his job, he made that guy someway, somehow go and find enough money to get in that arena to support Dusty Rhodes. I think that’s what is missing from today’s professional wrestling. Guys not going out there and having that believability to promote the show to get the people in the arena, to spend that dollar. That’s my opinion. I could be wrong, but I don’t think so.”

Booker T was asked if Bill Goldberg vs Roman Reigns is a match he would like to see: “I’m down for anything if it’s done right. Bill Goldberg is one of those guys like Mike Tyson right now. He is a guy who has been around for a long time, past his prime, but if he jumped in there right now with Roman Reigns, I would expect Roman Reigns to go out there and humble him. That’s the way it should go if he actually wanted to take that route. Am I knocking him or anything? No. I’m talking from a promoter’s perspective and from a promoter’s perspective only. Could it be something special? Yes, because what we have right there are two grown ass men. That right there, just the marquee with Roman on one side and Goldberg on the other, it is going to sell. People will want to see it. Spear vs spear. We got something here. Me personally, I’m all about passing the torch. Roman Reigns right now has that believability. Roman Reigns is the most believable guy in the business right now. When you watch Roman, Roman is a throwback to what guys were back in the day.”
