During a recent episode of his Steve Austin Show podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin interviewed Diamond Dallas Page. During the interview, the two traded stories about a fellow WWE Hall Of Famer, former five time WCW World Champion Booker T.
Both guys had nothing but nice things to say about Booker, including “The Texas Rattlesnake,” who shared a story about a rib Booker player on the locker room, saying he was named a top-five worker by pro wrestling pundits.
“Man, Book, we got along as soon as I met him in WCW,” said Austin. “Them, him and Stevie [Ray] were a tag team at the time, but we [were] always joking around, s–t we do to pass the time like that. [Page] know[s] Booker is a real confident guy, hell of a worker, hell of a worker! And a great promo. He started this rumor, some of the magazines, I forget exactly how he did it, but he goes, ‘so-and-so says I’m one of the top five workers in the world.’ Not just the United States, the world! And, dude, when you’re in the [pro wrestling] business, when a guy throws out a statement like that, you think, ‘hold it! Where did that s–t come from? How can he be the number five worker in the world or in the top five workers in the world?’ It was a rib! And everybody bit. Nobody knew whether to s–t or wind their watch!”
Stone Cold also shared a story about he and Booker T sharing some stiff shots and giving receipts inside the squared circle during their active in-ring careers.
“Me and Book used to love to work together,” said Austin. “One time, we [were] in the ring, and, Goddamn, he lit me up with the stiffest damn right jab. Dude, I mean, he hit me so damn hard, it was like, dude, instantly, I’m usually real patient, but on that one, I said, ‘dude, that receipt’s coming right now!’ Man, I threw a right hand and it caught him. We finished the match, but it was an instant receipt. And I was laughing in the back. He was laughing as well. I said, ‘Goddang, Book, if you and me ever get in a fight, I know I’d kick your ass because I took your best shot and the only reason I didn’t knock you out is because my right arm doesn’t straighten out.’ He started laughing. Good dude.”
