During the most recent edition of his The Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T talked about the upcoming Steel Cage match between Braun Strowman and Shane McMahon. The two-time WWE Hall of Famer spoke about what he believes Shane has in mind for Strowman, and explained:
“I think Shane [McMahon] is trying something here,” said Booker T. “Shane is trying to do something with Braun Strowman, perhaps that no one else has, and that’s get something out of him that no one else has gotten out of Braun Strowman as well. Let’s just think about Braun Strowman matches. How many of them do you really remember and say, ‘Man, you remember that Braun Strowman match with such and such?’ How many of them? I can’t think of one, okay”.
The former 5-time WCW Champion continued, and talked specifically about Braun. Booker gave a look into the possible end game for Strowman and Shane, stating:
“You can’t really think of a moment that Braun Strowman has really had inside the squared circle as, not just the Monster Among Men, but as a wrestler, having that memorable moment, that match that, man, was so over the top. I think that’s what Shane McMahon is trying to do more than anything. Take Braun Strowman to a place that perhaps not one of the boys on the roster could take him.”
Booker finished by talking about the storytelling aspect of the rivalry between Braun and McMahon. One-half of Harlem Heat told listeners:
“Shane may be looking at it [from] a total different perspective, Shakespeare wise, than anybody else is gonna be looking at it. So I’m waiting on the finishing product with that match right there. I think at the end of the day, you [are] gonna see something out of this story that you’re gonna go, ‘Wow, I didn’t see that coming,’ hopefully.”
