Booker T praises Roman Reigns as one of the "great ones"
On his Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T recently spoke about the 'I Quit' match between Roman Reigns and Jey Uso at WWE Hell In A Cell. Booker T loved the match and how it was presented. He also had a ton of praise for WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns, calling him one of the "great ones". Booker praised Reigns' ability to make viewers and fans feel a certain way:
A good match always comes down to what is said before, and what is said after the match. With Roman, it's not just what he said [after Hell in a Cell] but how he said it. It was very calm and real.
It wasn't over the top and just made you feel like, 'is this story real? I don't know.' And that's exactly what wrestling has always been about. The great ones have been able to go out and make you feel a certain way. H/T: WrestlingINC
Booker T also praised the storytelling in the match, saying that it reminded him of the old school was of doing things:
It was great storytelling, definitely got to your heart, pulled out those strings and made you go, 'wow, man. this is pretty good.' It had a feeling of what wrestling [used to be like], the way I always loved watching it. This was old school, a throwback.
There's always one match that makes you go, 'man, I don't know. Is this thing real?' as opposed to other matches on the card. H/T: WrestlingINC
Jey Uso has already qualified as a part of the men's SmackDown team at Survivor Series. As for Roman Reigns, he will face Randy Orton.
