Booker T has praised AEW TNT Champion Christian Cage as wrestling’s most underrated star in history, adding that the Canadian is “extraordinarily good.”
During the latest edition of his “Hall of Fame” podcast, Booker T spoke about Cage’s TNT Championship victory last week and what it means for Christian at this stage of his career. He said,
“It’s huge for Christian to be that guy because I always said Christian was the most underrated superstar in the history of the business. I’ve always said that. He’s always been extraordinarily good. He’s a guy that you can count on to pretty much make the right decision every time in the middle of that square circle.”
Booker T also recalled working with Christian in WWE and the compatibility the pair had in the ring. He said,
“I would tell Christian, ‘Bro, just let me know what I’m doing tonight,’ and he would let me know exactly when I was going to do the side-kick, the scissor kick, and the Spinaroonie. It would be perfect timing, and I would ask no questions. Sometimes you gotta know how to just be quiet and let someone else do the work for you and you take the credit. That’s the guy that we’re talking about as far as Christian Cage.”
Cage will defend the AEW TNT Championship against Darby Allin in a two-out-of-three falls match at AEW WrestleDream on October 1.
