On the latest edition of The Hall of Fame Podcast, Booker T discussed how Mandy Rose has so much potential, that the Otis angle may have slowed down her trajectory, comparing her to Trish Stratus, and noting that Mandy could learn a lot from Charlotte Flair. Highlights are below.

On how Mandy Rose has all the talent in the world: “One person that comes to mind is Mandy Rose. Mandy Rose, seems like she’s got all the talent in the world, seems like she can put herself in that position to be one of those, the five, let’s call them the five, and literally do something.”

On how the Otis storyline may have slowed down her trajectory: “That may have slowed everything down, as far as her trajectory, as far as the work side, going out there, the performance side, really getting off into what does the playbook actually mean.”

On how Mandy reminds him of Trish Stratus: “I kind of compare her to Trish Stratus. Trish was not just a beautiful girl, OK? She had all of that part sowed up, but the other side, Trish Stratus, she did not mind going out and getting into a fight. She did not mind stepping up her wrestling game, her performance game, and that’s what I remember about Trish, more than her beauty, and I think that’s where we gonna have to see a little bit more of Mandy Rose.”

On how she could learn from Charlotte Flair: “Of course she’s beautiful, that part is always gonna be there, but she’s gonna have to show the world how good a performer she is and I compare a lot of the women to Charlotte Flair because Charlotte, she looks good, she looks great, but when she goes out and performs, she makes you believe it’s a real contest going on. I think that’s where Mandy perhaps needs to study more and literally align herself more with.”
