WWE Hall Of Famer Booker T has discussed an off-air segment with the iconic Undertaker that had the five-time WCW Champion in tears.
The master of the spinaroonie was speaking to Metro.co.uk about other WWE Superstars trying to mimic his iconic move and says D-Von Dudley was the best imitator while the WWE Chairman and the giant Big Show, not so much:
“The best, I think, that’s done it on television… believe it or not, D-Von Dudley. As round as he is – maybe that’s what helped him! And the worst spinaroonie – it’s a cross, probably, between Vince McMahon and The Big Show.”
Booker T then reminisced about a time when he tried to get the legendary Undertaker to pull off the move in front of a live crowd. According to Booker, the show had been over for some time but plenty fans stayed to see if the Deadman was going to give them what they wanted:
“Trying to get The Undertaker to do the spinaroonie an hour after we’d gone off the air was a moment that’s gonna be stuck in my mind forever because we had so much fun.”
“I think I was crying the whole time we were trying to get it done. And the fans, man – more importantly, the fans they stayed there all the way to the end. They could’ve got in their cars and got up out of there.”
The show was over, and all of those fans stayed there just to be a part of that party. And that party still today is so memorable to so many people – especially the ones that were there.”
Booker T has recently discussed how his intention to quit WWE went awry when Vince McMahon decided to hire his wife Sharmell.
