WWE Hall Of Famer Booker T has named 3 women from WWE that he compares to wrestling icons such as Hulk Hogan, Randy Savage, and Ric Flair.

Women’s wrestling in WWE has undergone a revolution in recent years with female competitors being brought to the forefront of the company. Nowhere was this more evident than at WrestleMania 35 where for the first time ever, women competed in the main event of The Show of Shows as Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch, and Ronda Rousey battled over both the Raw and SmackDown Women’s Championships.

Now speaking on his Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T has compared some of today’s women to some of the biggest stars of all time and says former Raw Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley is a “money machine:”

“You know, man, I look at Rhea Ripley like Hulk Hogan. That’s what she’s like. She’s like the female Hulk Hogan. She’s a money machine, she’s a draw. I like her in a tag team thing, maybe they’re shielding her, saving her (for a different storyline), one of those type of deals. She’s definitely a star, a major star.”

“Charlotte is the Ric Flair. Sasha would be like the Macho Man, that’s no disrespect or anything like that.”

Rhea Ripley and her tag team partner Nikki A.S.H recently lost the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship to Carmella and Queen Zelina. The Australian star will be hoping her luck changes come time for the Royal Rumble where she will no doubt be hoping to go a step further than last year and come out victorious.
