During a recent edition of his Heated Conversations, Booker T spoke about the SmacDown women’s division and more, here are the highlights…

On Alexa Bliss: “I like Bliss! Do you know what? Bliss is like one of those little TNT firecrackers. Do you know what I mean. You hold it in your hand. Bang! You’ll blow your hand off. But she is awesome. Technically sounds. She goes out there and performs at a high level. She has a lot of, she brings a lot of emotion to the table when she works from a heel perspective, from a worker’s perspective. From a performer’s perspective, she brings it.”

On Nikki Bella: “I mean, Nikki [has] been there. She [has] done that. Yeah, [she is the biggest star in SmackDown’s women’s division], but the thing is, the Edsel was a good car in its day.”

On Naomi: “Naomi needs to put in time. Do you know what I mean? I really like Naomi, but the thing is, Naomi has a whole lot of athleticism. Do you know what I mean? She can go out there and perform at a very, very high level. she [has] got a lot of talent, but when I look at a performer, I look at their overall range, just like a musician. I’ve got to see exactly what you can do. If you can just sing, you’re not a musician. Do you know what I’m saying? That doesn’t make you a musician! If you can play the piano and if you can pick the saxophone and the flute up and play, and you jump on the drums, bop, bop, bop, that’s what I look for in an entertainer. I look to see how well-rounded they are and Naomi is good, but her psychology, the reason she goes out there and [does] stuff. She does not bring me any emotion and make me feel when I watch her perform. She’s just doing the moves.”


On AJ Styles: “The guy [does] not do anything but deliver each and every time that he’s out there in the ring. AJ Styles has proved that he is a player in the WWE and I hope we see AJ Styles in the WWE for quite some time.” Booker T continued, “I thought AJ Styles had the potential to be champion no matter wherever he went. I actually had a chance to perform with AJ down in TNA and I thought he was an awesome performer. I got a chance to see AJ Styles trying to break into the [professional wrestling] business right there at the end of WCW, just trying to do anything to get in and he was an awesome, phenomenal talent even back then, just waiting to get a shot. Everybody always [says] guys with that southern accent don’t do very well in the WWE environment, but you can’t even really tell AJ is from the south. It seems like he [has] figured it out, how to drop the accent a little bit.”
