WWE Hall Of Famer Booker T recently appeared on the Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast. Below are highlights from that interview
On how Sgt. Slaughter turned heel turn the right way:
“It was the biggest thing on professional wrestling as far as heat goes, as far as a man needing security wherever he would walk.”
On the nWo getting massive babyface pops:
“That’s when I knew the nWo, the bad guys, was killing the business because they didn’t want the heat, they wanted the adulation. That nWo, singlehandedly, almost ruined the business in terms of good guys, bad guys, cowboys and indians.”
Booker T also said that Hulk Hogan joining the nWo was a “bad idea” because it got people to like them even more.
