WWE Developmental Wrestler Appears Unmasked, Booker T Talks Buff Bagwell Match

– Benicio Salazar, who had been appearing in Florida Championship Wrestling as a masked character, is now pictured on without a mask. His bio, however, was not modified.

“I have spent much time scouting the superstars of FCW,” Salazar explained through a translator. “My true identity will NEVER be revealed and the fact that I will become the next big FCW attraction is all my opponents need to know.”

– Booker T talks about his most memorable moment from Raw, which was his match against Buff Bagwell in the show’s first-ever WCW main event.

“My favorite moment from Monday Night Raw would have to be the night myself and Marcus Bagwell main-evented on Monday Night Raw,” Booker reveals. “It’s such a sweet night for me, actually coming from WCW.”

T continues, “That night for me man, a new chapter to the Booker T saga. It was a night that I’ll remember for the rest of my career.”

    @ “Bad Man” Bigelow VKM wanted 2 shows at the time. he wanted a WCW show seperate from the WWE show, but decided the WCW former employees couldn’t cut it(thanks Buff!). so thats when the brand extension started. so says Jericho.

    That’s what I was thinking after I had read this article. Didn’t Jericho also write about how Bagwell was the reason for the brand split because of that match? I forget exactly what he said, but he said that the Buff Bagwell/Booker T match is why they went with the brand split.

    funny how I see this article now after reading about this non-existent match just yesterday in Chris Jericho’s book “Undisputed”. VKM didn’t think Buff was “froot” enough for the WWE after that match.

    that was the one and only time buff bagwell would be on wwe t.v., as him gettin throw out the door was symbolic enough….

    Booker T’s RAW Moment shouldve been when Austin beat his ass in that Deli-mart

  • Brian Adams (DPW)

    He is actually a coke addict now. Sadly. I seen him at an indie show here in GA I was working about a year ago.

    It might’ve been a good moment for Booker, but it wasn’t for the fans. I remember the fans were bored with that match and were waiting for a run-in from any WWE wrestler before the show ended.

    i say have buff come back to the wwe, the wwe needs some swagger & marcus has it in spades.
