Two-time WWE Hall of Fame legend Booker T recently joined WWE commentator Corey Graves on the official WWE podcast, “After The Bell”, for an in-depth interview on the newest episode of the popular weekly program.
During the discussion, Booker T cleared up some potential confusion regarding remarks he makes about John Cena while doing commentary for WWE, as he feels many are under the false assumption that he is “ribbing him.”
“People that heard me say on commentary — and I don’t know if they thought I was digging at John or ribbing him, or whatever. I’d say, ‘Man, this guy’s got a limited skill set, but he’s a guy who’s taken that skill set and parlayed it to the greatest career in the history of the business.’ That’s not a knock or anything like that. That’s letting you know you can take very very little and make so much of it, which John Cena has done. And so many guys just don’t understand that. They just bury it, they just don’t understand it, because they haven’t been taught it.”
He would go on to explain why Cena’s never-ending search of knowledge of the business is the reason why despite a limited skill-set, he has had “the greatest career in the history of the business.”
“But John was, like you say, a guy that sat under the learning tree. And he made sure he soaked every ounce of that knowledge up. I wish the young guys out there can kind of look at it [similarly]. But a lot of them, you know, they give me a call from here to here, time to time.”
