Booker T was recently interviewed by Sportskaeda. During the interview, he talked about his original induction into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2013 and not feeling like he was worthy. Here are the highlights:
On Not Feeling That He Belonged In The Hall Of Fame:
I got the phone call, one of the office guys, I don’t want to say his name or anything like that, but I always thought I was too young to go into The Hall of Fame. I was like, “I’m not old enough. I don’t have enough grey hair yet. I might have a few matches still left in me.” I just didn’t feel like I was ready to go into The Hall of Fame.
On When He Finally Felt He Belonged:
After I’ve sat back and looked at my body of work, thought about it, I go, “Wow, I guess I am a Hall of Famer.” I never really thought about it along the journey. You got to put in the work first before you can ever think about ever dreaming or imagine making it to that point. I don’t think it’s up to you to say you belong in The Hall of Fame, that’s up to someone else.
After it happened, I said, “Wow, I’ll expect it, and I’m gonna take it with me to the grave.” Hopefully, I get to go in one more time as a tag team with my brother one day.
