[10.0] "Arguably the most successful black wrestler of all time. The 5x WCW Champion and one time WWE World Heavyweight Champion. If you asked me, he should have beaten The Rock for the WWF title. Great arsenal of moves, great on the mic, and has a really cool redemption story to boot. Now can you dig that, SUCKA?"

[8.0] "A great wrestler and commentator, Booker was talent gone to waste. He should've ended Triple H's "Reign of Terror" because he was the one who deserved it most especially with his rough past. Always love the Spinaroonie!"

[10.0] "god i love his kicks not only that i miss him doing the harlem/houston hangover. This dude can skill has the charisma to be a worldchampion has the mic skills to be a top guy!"
DanTalksRasslin wrote on 30.12.2015:
[10.0] "In his prime, Booker was a complete package of a performer - versatile and athletic ring style combining power, aerial offense and martial arts-infused strikes, great selling, and incredible charisma and ability to connect with the crowd. First rose to prominence as half of Harlem Heat, one of the better tag teams of the '90s, with his brother Stevie Ray, then broke out on his own as one of the handful of stars WCW truly "made" on its own. WWE never fully got behind him, perhaps due to the WCW stigma, but he had a respectable in-ring run there (as well as one with TNA), and in semi-retirement has carved out a niche as a color commentator, while also running his own school and promotion Reality of Wrestling on the side. A fantastic performer with a career anyone would be proud of."

[10.0] "Don't really care about his current work, but in his prime, easily one of my favorites. Off the charts charisma."
Preston Ward Condra wrote on 20.06.2015:
[6.0] "Booker T came off with a rough childhood with him robbing a Wendy's restaurant (correct me if I'm wrong) to being an all-around good worker in the WWE. His spinarooni move is pretty funny and occasionally funny at the commentary table that I give a fair score for a fair career the guy has had. Not to mention his King Booker days. SHUCKY DUCKY QUACK QUACK."

[10.0] "The 5 time 5 time 5 time 5 time 5 time WCW champion ! One of the best wrestlers in WCW history. Really enjoyed his work back in the day. It's a shame his momentum was cut short in 2001, but still a very entertaining guy.... Now can you dig that.............. SUCKAAAA ?"
HammertonWay wrote on 25.02.2015:
[9.0] "At his prime he was one of the best workers in wrestling, even if he was incredibly under-utilised in WWE at first. At one moment, he would be a solid mid-card performer, the next moment he is a legit threat to a world champ."
Phenomenal91 wrote on 10.02.2015:
[10.0] "A God in WCW, a less-than-productive run in WWE, a nice run in TNA, and now a color commentator and owner of his own promotion. This man's done so much in wrestling that it's staggering to think about. Even if his time in WWE has not lived up to the greatness of his time in WCW, he still has an amazing legacy to look back on. From prison to triumph!"
The5thHorseman wrote on 07.01.2015:
[9.0] "Excellent longevity, adaptable, charismatic, athletic and memorable. One of the most underrated wrestlers that contributed to the rise of WCW in the 90s and not to their fall."

Tank: "2007, the 'King Of The Death'... and every year I say I'm gonna win it, but this year was really a letdown. I let a fuckin' bitch beat me. She's no ordinary bitch. I give you credit, Mickie Knuckles. You're a tough little slut. But this is far from over....Read on!
