Booker T WWE Tribute

In the latest episode of his Heated Conversations podcast (via Wrestling Inc), Booker T said that he went out of his way to work an angle with Cody Rhodes when the two feuded in late 2011/early 2012 WWE.

He said: “People may not realize it or anything, but I’ve never asked for an angle to do anything in this business throughout my whole career. I’ve never went to the office and said, ‘Hey, man, what kind of programs I’m going to be in,’ or anything. The only time that I ever did that, now that I can remember, because I’ve been telling people that I never did that before, the only time I can ever remember doing that is when I did the angle with Cody Rhodes. I requested that because I always thought Cody was a guy that could work on that next level. I always thought Cody could be World Championship material, so I said, let me go out here and let me show the world how good Cody Rhodes is. I always thought Cody Rhodes was The Dream, I thought he was the heir apparent. I thought he was going to take that baton and go to the next level with it…This guys has the tools to make it to the next level. So I said, let me go out here and work with him and put him over. Make him shine like new money and lay down for him right in the middle of the ring, 1-2-3 at the end of the day. It’s not about me, it’s not about me. That’s what that thing was all about.
