WWE Hall of Famer Booker T addressed his feud with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson during an episode of his podcast, Hall of fame.
Booker T confessed that when he first came to WWE and finally got into an argument with The Rock, he “didn’t let go.” He admitted that he was “not working like I normally worked” at WCW.
“I felt a little soft with The Rock even though we had some good things. But I always felt like I was holding back a bit too much from when I was there working with The Rock, ”said Booker T.“ In saying that, I have to say The Rock worked. very different from all the other guys I’ve worked with in the company. The Rock was so meticulous that every detail was right. That’s why he’s so awesome when it comes to promos.
Booker T believes that same meticulous nature is why The Rock was so successful in Hollywood. He shared how working with The Rock was like being on a movie set. He explained it was because “everything had to be good with this guy.”
“I appreciate him for saying that I was one of the sportiest guys he’s ever worked with and one of the most entertaining guys he’s ever worked with,” said Booker T. ” But I was thinking way too much when I worked with Rock. Looking back, thinking about it, I felt like I could have worked a lot more with him.
Booker T faced The Rock in a WCW Championship game at SummerSlam 2001. You can watch their game below:
