Booker T has revealed who he says as the top star in the entire wrestling business today as he acknowledges WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns as The Head Of The Table.
WWE Hall Of Famer Booker T is no stranger to success in the wrestling business. A ten-time WCW Tag Team Champion with brother Stevie Ray as Harlem Heat, a five-time WCW Champion as well as holding World Heavyweight Title in WWE, the 2006 King Of The Ring is more qualified than most to decree who sits atop wrestling’s tree.
Speaking on an episode of Rasslin’ with Brandon F. Walker, Booker T wasted no time singing the praises of Reigns:
“I’ve said for the last three years that Roman (Reigns) is the best guy in the business just because he’s a guy that goes out and performs at a very, very high level but everyone that work(s) with Roman, they have their best match. They come up another level. They may not ever have a match like that ever again but when they’re in there with Roman, Roman goes out and does everything he needs to do from a professional’s perspective, from a general’s perspective, to make everything about the match and give the fans what they want. So, he’s my guy. He’s the number 1 guy in the business right now.”
Sine Reigns returned after short hiatus at SummerSlam 2020 he has been very different from The Big Dog that the WWE Universe knew and loved – or hated. He aligned himself with Paul Heyman and took no prisoners as he claimed back the Universal Title he was forced to vacate in 2018.
Reigns has kept it in the family as he has built a relationship with Jey Uso after a heated rivalry with his cousin in 2020. The recently returned Jimmy Uso has not been as ready to acknowledge The Tribal Chief as his brother has been, causing further family tensions on SmackDown.
