During the most recent episode of The Hall of Fame Podcast with Booker T, the five time WCW Champion gave listeners a deep dive into his thoughts on the upcoming Roman Reigns vs Edge match. Edge will challenge Reigns for the WWE Universal Championship, in a match that will be a meeting of two different era’s of WWE. Booker shared his thoughts on that aspect of the match, saying:
“These guys are coming from a totally different era. This is not just two guys that haven’t worked with each other and been in the ring with each other. Two guys that come from two totally different eras. This is Edge’s third era probably that he has gotten the chance to work with. It’s definitely one of those things where I understand exactly where Edge is right now. It’s gonna be a hard row to hoe as far as going out there and actually matching up. Honestly, he doesn’t match up with Roman”.
Booker also spoke about the level of performer “The Head of the Table” and “Tribal Chief” is, telling listeners:
“Roman is a beast, man. Roman has proved that he is truly ‘the guy.’ I really feel that way, not just because he said it, but because the guy is a top-notch worker and top-notch entertainer and top-notch performer. He knows the playbook. He knows what Shakespeare is all about, and he goes out there and makes it work. That’s why everybody right now – c’mon, man, all eyes are on Roman. Just two years ago, no love for this guy. So, obviously, he knows what he’s doing. Right now, Roman truly is the guy, and I’m looking forward to it”.
One half of Harlem Heat took a look into his crystal ball, and gave a few thoughts on how the Edge vs Roman Reigns collision might go down. Booker explained:
“If I had to bet money on it, it would be a great feel-good story if Edge went out there and pulled it off after retirement. He wins the Rumble, going to WrestleMania, takes on Roman, and wins. Cinderella story. Everybody would love to see it, but normally, the story doesn’t turn out that way in the end in the WWE. Hopefully, the people get what they want, but a lot of people may want to see Roman.”
