Tw0-time WWE Hall Of Famer Booker T recently took to his podcast, “The Hall Of Fame,” to discuss several professional wrestling topics. Booker discussed The New Day’s Big E, wanting to see him work with Brock Lesnar, and giving Big E the strength advantage in the potential matchup.
Here are the highlights:
Big E having the potential to be a big star:
Big E needs more air time, man. The guy definitely can become a star. I tell you, put Big E in the right position at the right time and he can definitely be the guy. I talked to him about that, I said, ‘Man -‘ he was a little frustrated one day and I said, and I was like, ‘Trust me bro, you’re talented. One thing about cream, it always rises to the top. Just wait and trust me on this.’ Hopefully, he’ll get his chance.
Wanting to see Big E vs. Brock Lesnar:
I can see him competing with Brock Lesnar on a one-on-one scale. Just because, the guy is low center of gravity, but, he’s just as wide, and probably weighs more than Brock Lesnar. And a guy like that, literally, from a fighting standpoint, it would really be hard for a guy like Brock Lesnar, fighting a guy like that, just because, the strength. Who are you going to give it to?
In a strength matchup, I’m going to give the strength matchup to Big E 100 percent of the time. Seriously, every time. Just say, for instance, being that size, and the quickness that Big E has, from a realistic wrestling match, he could get under Brock Lesnar a whole lot quicker than Brock Lesnar can get under him. I look at it from that perspective right there.
