Booker T Advises Young Talents


WWE SmackDown colour commentator and long-time sports entertainment, superstar Booker T, is in a good place in his career, helping younger talents with words of wisdom on the mic and backstage.

Booker T, 46, a singles and tag team star, has won 35 major titles in his 22-year career, and he doesn’t mind returning to the ring either, as he did against WWE Intercontinental champ Cody Rhodes.

During an interview, Booker T offered advice to younger talents as he’s learnt some valuable lessons.

“I came up with The Bookend. That was my move, and then Rock stole it and made it the Rock Bottom. He made it even more famous than The Bookend. That’s part of the business.

“ Probably at the same time he did, but he took it and made money on it. That’s the thing. You’ve got to be innovative. You’ve got to be quick.

“That’s what I encourage these young guys to do. It’s about competition. Of course, we’re friends, but this is a business, and you’ve got to go out there and treat it like a business,” he said.

You’ve got to think about being better than the next guy.

“These young guys really got to focus, if they want to work at the top of the card, if they want to be in that main event, if they want to carry the World title, if they want to be the WWE champion.

“They’ve got to really put their thinking cap on and really focus on what it’s going to take for them to get in that position. It’s a test each and every day.”
