Booker T Compares Current Raw Superstar To Hulk Hogan

Booker T

Booker T has boldly compared a current Raw Superstar to WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan, describing them as a “money machine.”

During his full-time wrestling career, Hulk Hogan rose to become arguably the most famous wrestler in the world, even hopping over to Hollywood to appear in a number of movies. Alongside Vince McMahon he is widely credited with establishing the WWE on the world stage, before spearheading one of the most influential factions in history in WCW in the form of the nWo. In short, that’s quite the CV to have when all is said an done.

In more recent years women’s wrestling in WWE has grown from being a minor part of the show, to where a number of women are seen as big stars like their male counterparts.

Speaking on the latest episode of his Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T has compared the female stars of today to the male stars of day’s gone by. The former World Champion initially had huge praise for Rhea Ripley who he described as a “money machine.” Booker T then compared two further Superstars to Macho Man Randy Savage and Ric Flair.

“You know, man, I look at Rhea Ripley like Hulk Hogan. That’s what she’s like. She’s like the female Hulk Hogan. She’s a money machine, she’s a draw. I like her in a tag team thing, maybe they’re shielding her, saving her (for a different storyline), one of those type of deals. She’s definitely a star, a major star.”

Charlotte is the Ric Flair. Sasha would be like the Macho Man, that’s no disrespect or anything like that.”

Rhea Ripley arrived on the main roster in the run up to WrestleMania 37 where she would eventually vanquish Raw Women’s Champion Asuka. In more recent times the Aussie star has held the Women’s Tag Team Titles alongside Nikki A.S.H. The pair lost the titles in November to Zelina Vega and Carmella.
