Booker T. Has an Interesting Take on Wrestlemania Moments

It’s a lot of people’s favorite. Booker T. is one of the most successful wrestlers of all time, having won more than ten titles each in both WWE and WCW. He’s been around the business at a high level since 1993 and has a unique perspective on a lot of things. One of these things would be Wrestlemania, which he was asked about in a recent interview.

Booker T. was interviewed by Hannibal TV about his favorite Wrestlemania moment. After giving his answer, Booker T. gave an interesting take on whether or not he remembers his own Wrestlemania moments. Here are his full comments with transcript courtesy of Wrestlinginc.com.

“Steamboat vs. Savage [at] WrestleMania 3. Don’t get more better than that, that’s when wrestling was guys going out there and giving the fans a ride or a rollercoaster ride and giving them an adventure. Giving them a story to see from the beginning to the end. Matches like that live the test of time and I hope this WrestleMania we have some of these young guys go out there with that same intensity level, and give these fans the memories – I hear a lot of them ask me if I remember certain things, and I say no I don’t remember it because I did it for you to remember it. Remind me about it. I think this WrestleMania is gonna be no different, guys going out there and putting smiles on faces and leaving long lasting memories for forever.”

Opinion: There’s a reason that match is revered by so many people over the years. Booker T.’s comments about not remembering his own moments at Wrestlemania are really interesting as I often wonder how many of those moments stay in the wrestlers’ minds. Saying that the moments are for the fans to remember is a very different take on the question and makes sense when you think about it.

First Three New Raw Stars Include Big Singles Champion

The Superstar Shakeup is underway, and it’s time to see who’s been moved to Monday Night Raw.

The first two stars to make the jump appeared to be John Cena and Nikki Bella–except, of course, it wasn’t. Instead, it was the Miz and Maryse doing their now-classic parody of WWE’s recently engaged couple.

Dean Ambrose came to interrupt the couple’s introduction, with the Intercontinental Championship in tow. That seems to suggest Kevin Owens might make the jump to Tuesday nights, bringing a different secondary singles title to SmackDown.

These three join Apollo Crews, who became part of the Monday night crew earlier today. We’ll keep you updated on the big changes as they happen, including a full rundown after the show.

Samson has been expected for a main roster call-up after recently losing a “Loser Leaves NXT” match to Kassius Ohno. No word yet on if Heath Slater is backstage at RAW but as noted earlier, WWE has announced that a pair of former tag team champions will be coming to RAW from SmackDown tonight.

On a related note, most of the RAW roster is scheduled to be at Tuesday’s SmackDown tapings in Boston for the end of the two-night “Shakeup” event.

Ric Flair Kicked Out Of Bar For Insulting Employee

Pro Wrestling Sheet has confirmed Ric Flair was kicked out of a bar Sunday evening in Indiana for insulting one of the people who works there, this according to a fellow employee.
Multiple people in attendance say Flair hit up The Deck at the Gas House in Fort Wayne, Indiana tonight and was told to leave after a brief stay.
One source tells us he was kicked out for calling the bartender a “fat ass” … and when we checked with the establishment, an employee told us they could only verify that he had been insulting the bartender. Patrons noted on Twitter that this all happened in a matter of 5 minutes.
They reached out to Flair’s rep. So far, no word back.

 

 

When you see Ric Flair at the deck and then promptly see him getting kicked out like 5 minutes later 😂

AJ Lee Reveals CM Punk’s Payday for UFC Loss

Who’s laughing now? Last year, CM Punk got into the UFC octagon to fulfill a lifelong dream. A lot of people said he was going to get destroyed because he was too old and too banged up to do it but Punk said he would put in everything he had. Punk wound up lasting two minutes and fourteen seconds with Punk being completely massacred. However, there’s a detail that might make things a bit easier to take.

Punk’s wife AJ Lee recently appeared on the “Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast” and mentioned that Punk’s payday for the fight was one million dollars, which made Punk rather happy. Lee also mentioned her thoughts on Punk’s post-fight speech and what she did when she first saw him after the fight.

“ I don’t think it hurt to earn a million dollars for one night, he was pretty psyched about that. He came backstage with the biggest smile on his face and was completely sweaty, which I threw myself on him, I just told him how proud I am of him. His speech afterward was so moving and I try not to get so emotional around people.”

Opinion: In case you’re not the best at math, that’s around $7,500 a second. Punk’s loss was one of the bigger jokes in wrestling last year as the only positive to come out of it was he got in there and did what he had always wanted to do. I don’t know if he’ll ever have another fight but he did get in there and got a huge paycheck for it so that’s quite impressive.

Do you think Punk ever fights again? Does he ever return to wrestling? Let us know in the comments below.

One Surefire Way to Get Apollo Crews Over on ‘RAW’

The first swap of Superstar Swap happened before RAW even went on the air. Apollo Crews went from Smackdown to RAW, making him the first of presumably a handful of moves that will take place Monday. I like Crews in the ring. I even wrote about that. I also made the point that he needed direction, and particularly he needed to get better on the mike. He needed a schtick. He needed something to get him over. Well, there is a path potentially open to him based on his move to RAW that could actually give Crews some traction. Plus, he wouldn’t even need to develop more personality.

Mouthpiece managers are a rare breed in pro wrestling these days, especially in the WWE. Frankly, there is only one, and as he is wont to tell you his name is Paul Heyman. Heyman is, of course, the “advocate” of current Universal champ Brock Lesnar. That really means he talks so Lesnar only has to look mean and suplex people. It’s a dynamic that works, because Heyman is great on the mic.

Obviously, I’m suggesting that Heyman could become the advocate for Crews as well. Crews isn’t all that different than Lesnar. He doesn’t have Lesnar’s name, or his mixed-martial arts legitimacy, but he’s a big, athletic guy who could use somebody to help get him over. Heyman could certainly do that. Now, Heyman works from the position of a heel, which would mean Crews would have to turn. If that’s what it takes, that’s a no brainer. It’s not like Crews is over as a face. Since Lesnar isn’t likely to wrestle all that much, Heyman should be able to find the time to advocate for two wrestlers. Now, there is no sign that this will actually happen. It’s just an idea, but a good one. Otherwise, Crews could go the way of Jack Swagger.

Watch The WWE Tag Champs in Their First Tag Title Match

The Hardy Boyz are back in the WWE. You probably know this, because the WWE has made a big deal out of it. You can forgive them for that, considering how excited people were when Jeff and Matt made their surprise return at WrestleMania 33. So let’s enjoy a blast from the past, with a Hardys match from almost 20 years ago.

[This post contains video, click to play]

The match in question comes from July 5, 1999. In said match, the Hardy Boyz were getting their first shot at the World Tag Team Championship. Who were the champs at the time? Why, none other than the APA, Bradshaw and Farooq. Yes, this whole video is a real trip down memory lane. Although, by this point the Hardys had already abandoned their original look for a cargo pants and tight shirts thing.

I always had a soft spot in my heart for the Hardys. Back when they were making their debut in WWE, I was young enough and had enough free time that I actually watched shows like Shotgun Saturday Night. I remember the originally iteration of the Hardys, and I was a fan. I wanted big things for them, and then, of course, it happened. I almost felt like a scout who noticed the next big thing. This was in 1997. A couple years later, they were fighting for the tag team titles.

WWE Announces First Raw Acquisition Ahead of Superstar Shakeup

WWE immediately transitioned the momentum of a pretty good WrestleMania into a whole lot of anticipation for their Superstar Shakeup, which will be rocking the worlds of both brands this week.

Ahead of Raw, WWE went and announced the first new star set for action on Monday nights. That is none other that the all-American nice boy, Apollo Crews, whole be moving from SmackDown to the red brand.

Apollo debuted the night after WrestleMania 32, and hasn’t done a whole lot since. He’s got a whole lot of athleticism, but it never felt like he met his full potential in NXT, much less on the main roster. Most recently on SmackDown, he’s been getting beat up by Dolph Ziggler, and the crowd’s buying neither Ziggler’s heel turn nor Crews as a babyface.

It’ll take more than a fresh opponent to get Crews back on track, but it’s a start. We’ll see who else will be making the move soon.

[This post contains video, click to play]

We’ll be keeping up with all tonight’s announcements as they happen, so stick with us for the details as some of SmackDown’s brightest make the transition to Monday nights.
