Booker T has revealed that Melina wasn’t well-liked in the WWE locker room.
During his Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T spoke about not liking Melina when she initially came into WWE. He wasn’t the only one, as Candice Michelle once stated that she also had issues with Melina and that they almost had a shoot fight while wrestling a match.
Booker T also speculated whether the departure of Melina is why WWE doesn’t bring her up as a legend in comparison to names like Trish Stratus and Lita. You can check out what he said below:
“She was one of those that owned it, she wanted to be the best in the ring, and she was hell to deal with in the locker room,” he claimed. “I think she would attest to that, perhaps, these days … And I have always said this, as far as talent go, there was nobody better than Melina.”
Booker T once told Melina that he never doubted her skill level but admitted her being “very controversial.” However, the positive comment did make Melina tear up backstage.
“None of it had to do with her in-ring prowess or anything like that,” he stated about her backstage heat. “I said, ‘Melina, I always thought you were the best female wrestler in that damn locker room in your time,’ and I really believe that.”
