Booker T Reveals Who He Thinks Should Defeat Roman Reigns For The WWE Universal Title
Booker thinks a recent WWE returnee could be just the guy to do it
Two-time WWE Hall of Famer Booker T has outlined who he believes should be the superstar to dethrone current WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns.
According to the former World Heavyweight Champion, Cody Rhodes would be the perfect person to take the title off the Tribal Chief.
Speaking on a recent episode of his The Hall of Fame podcast, Booker said:
"I've got to go with Cody Rhodes. Drew McIntyre, like I said on the kickoff show, being a part of that six-man with RK-Bro, keeping himself real close to the body. Making sure he stays close to the championship. It's good for Drew McIntyre. Letting everyone know, man, I am not far from this picture. But, the guy that's got the hot hand, the guy that's got the rocket on him is Cody Rhodes. I say you run with that, man, until it cools off. I don't think that’s going to be for quite some time".
Booker had a lot of praise for The American Nightmare, whom he feuded with over the Intercontinental Title upon his WWE return in 2011.
"I'm a Cody fan, man. I got a chance to talk to Cody this weekend, in the TV locker room. Because that's where the boys dressed, the old-school. Cody came in, and his dad, Dusty, he didn't call me Booker T, he always used to call me 'T Book'. Cody calls me T Book as well. We were talking about something, and he said one thing that made me think about him and I when we worked together.
"He goes, 'you've got to know when you're driving, you've got to know when you've got the keys'. The thing is, that's what I was telling him when we were working each other. Now to hear him have all of that still stuck in his head, it made me feel pretty good. Let me know that I did my work, I got my work done when I was working with Cody.
"Because he is a different worker, he's matured, he's more polished, he's more seasoned. He's not going out there just running around doing something just because he can do it. Now he's trying to motivate the fans to feel a certain way about Cody Rhodes and what he's trying to achieve".
