WWE legend Booker T has backed Shotzi and come to the defense of the SmackDown star after she made a few mistakes in the Women's Money in the Bank match.
Shotzi was among seven WWE Superstars to take part in the Women's Ladder match at Money in the Bank match on Saturday. She made a few mistakes in the match for which fans criticized her on social media and even called for her to be fired from the company. After the criticism, she deleted her Twitter account.
Booker T provided encouragement to Shotzi on his Hall of Fame show, advising her to learn from her mistakes, which he feels is a part of the pro wrestling business. He also advised her not to listen to her critics, especially on social media.
"My advice to Shotzi is, 'You get right back up on that horse, you cannot let the internet world distract you from going out there and being you.' Mistakes are something that have always made, I think - we've talked about me forgetting spots. That's just part of the business. For me, I would tell Shotzi, 'Do not let the haters get in your head because of the wrestling business is all about mistakes and hopefully learning from them,'" said Booker T. [From 30:53 to 31:29]
Unlike Hollywood, the Hall of Famer feels that pro wrestling doesn't offer you a chance to rectify your mistakes.
