Booker T, on his Hall of Fame podcast with Brad Gilmore, spoke about recent rumors of him being Bad Bunny's tag team partner at WrestleMania. He stated that he would rather see a younger wrestler like Damian Priest "get that rub" of being in a WrestleMania match.
"I'm still trying to figure out where the game is right now. You know, just say, for instance - I'm all about the young guys. I hate it when these guys go, 'oh, Booker T, he just buries old guys,' because that's just not me. I'm always about passing it on to the young guys, just like, for instance - rumor going around as far as me being Bad Bunny's partner at WrestleMania. And what did I say - I said I'd rather see Damian Priest get that rub. He's the guy that's on television right now. He's the guy that's going to be, you know, want to push. He's the guy that will get on the house shows when we finally open back up and get out there to do those runs. He's the guy that's going to do those overseas tours. So, for me, just standing up there doing that video, the art of doing nothing that was perfectly fine. And to see a young guy go out there and get that rub with someone like Bad Bunny, you never know what that could do to his career. I'm set."
Booker T stated that he doesn't understand how people don't realize his point of view.
