Booker T On How “Throwback” Rumble Match Could Be Great Or Crap

Booker T

WWE Hall Of Famer Booker T has weighed in with his opinion on the quality of one of the feature contests at the upcoming Royal Rumble, claiming it will either be an epic or complete garbage.

Whilst most will be tuning in for the Men’s and Women’s Royal Rumble matches themselves, there’s plenty else on the show such as the Universal Championship match between Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins, and Becky Lynch defending the Raw Women’s Title against Doudrop.

The WWE Championship will also be at stake, as Brock Lesnar defends the title for the first time since Day 1 as he takes on Bobby Lashley.

Booker T has given his opinion on that match on his Hall of Fame podcast, and thinks it’s going to be chalk and cheese in terms of the level it could possibly reach.

We haven’t seen anything like this in a long time. This is a throwback to what WWE used to look like. Now we could see two high-calibre athletes go out there and see if they can display this art that we do. Both of these guys have risen their game to another level. I can’t sit here and anticipate what we’re going to see. It could be the greatest match we’ve seen from two guys of that size or the crappiest match – one of the two.

But I do think both of these guys have exactly what it takes to go out and deliver something very, very special and memorable, which you’re going to remember for a very long time.
