Booker T Speaks on Working Under Vince McMahon & Dixie Carter, Winning Gold in WCW & More

Mike Killam

Booker TWWE Hall of Famer Booker T spoke with WrestlingINC this week about coming to WWF from WCW, working under three of the biggest promoters in the last few decades, and more. 

The differences between working with Eric Bischoff, Dixie Carter and Vince McMahon: 

"Dixie Carter, she's a nice lady, a really nice lady. She's got a good heart and she really wants to do the right thing for the guys. Does she have the right guys doing things? That might be another story. Is Eric Bischoff the right guy for the job? I don't know, you've got to weigh your options as far as that right there. Look at the track record. 

"As far as working for Vince McMahon, it's always been a business. It's always been a working relationship, I tried not to become friends or anything like that with anybody that I'm working under. I always know that it's about business, it's not about friendship. That's Vince, he's always about business. It's all about getting the job done, it's all about going out and being number one every week no matter what.

On winning the WCW Title in 2000: 

"I'm not sure if [Hulk Hogan] was trying to step on my grave or throw a monkey wrench into me winning the championship; it was just something that he felt was owed to him at that time. So, I let everything play out. I found out maybe 5, maybe 6 or 7 minutes before I went out that I was going to win the title and that I was going to be champ that night."
