[10.0] "Giving him a 10. The star of one of the greatest tag teams of all time. Held multiple titles as a singles wrestler, hella charismatic, solid in the ring. There is no way in hell these low rating for dude are justified. Especially when a RVD is like a 8 something, this is ridiculous. Book in my mind may be one of the most known underrated wrestlers of all time."

[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!"

[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 it.............. SUCKAAAA ?"

[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."
Wolfpac4Life wrote on 29.12.2014:
[8.0] "As much I agree with previous commenter about how Booker T deserves bigger rating, I still cannot give him solid 10. Yeah, Booker T & his Brother Stevie Ray defined WCW's tag division as Harlem Heat, Booker had charisma and ''IT-factor'' and he had serious title success as he held WCW World & US titles, WCW Tag & Television titles, WWE Tag, Intercontinental, US and World Heavyweight titles, but through all this, he never was a ''larger than life''-star like The Rock, Steve Austin, Hulk Hogan, etc, but he still is one of my favourite WCW stars alongside with Sting, Ric Flair, DDP, Steiner, Nash, Hall and Goldberg."
JMTheBadOne wrote on 02.12.2014:
[8.0] "Booker T may be glad to tell everyone how many times he was the World Heavyweight Champion, but most of those reigns were in an era where the belt was booked so poorly that no one was given reason to care. Be that as it may, he was still one of the more dominant tag and mid-card wrestlers whose WWE Championship chances likely fell victim to the political game of being a WCW guy in a WWE world. Now retired from active competition, he spends his time as both an announcer/guest panelist for the WWE in addition to being promoter and proprietor of the Houston-based Reality of Wrestling."
Torshavn wrote on 23.08.2014:
[7.0] "Booker T is a great wrestler. He is very athletic especially for a man of his size and has a pretty unique moveset, but what really sets him apart is his great charisma and his connection to the crowd. The only real downside is that he's a simply awful announcer, which is why I have to give him 7 points instead of 8."
version1 wrote on 22.06.2014:
[9.0] "Why in hell is Booker T's rating below 7 points? He is one of the most charismatic and talented ever, and after all, he really carried WCW's main-event division in 2000-2001 along with Scott Steiner and Jeff Jarrett, he was part of WCW's legendary tag team Harlem Heat and he is 5 time WCW Champion and 1 time World Heavyweight Champion in WWE, so isn't that enough for you?"

[9.0] "As a wrestler I always found Booker extremely entertaining, the last few years his in ring work fell off a bit as he got older, but still very solid, makes great facial expressions, has a unique offensive skill set and has done it for many years. Extra point for being doing a good job in the GM and commentator roles also."
