On a recent edition of his “Hall of Fame” podcast, Booker T discussed the negative response to The Rock’s return and a potential match with Roman Reigns. He said,
“If Cody wouldn’t have won the Royal Rumble, it might be a totally different story. The fans may feel a totally different way. Would they be pissed off Cody didn’t win the Royal Rumble? Probably. But I think doing it this way, it almost puts yourself in a corner.
“But one thing I’ve always had the faith in is WWE trying to figure its way out of that corner and make the fans go, ‘Man, damn it.’ So I’m thinking like that as well. Right now, it may look like we’re in a little pickle, but I think at the end of the day, I think it could really be corrected and make the fans get even more out of their money, seriously.”
The ‘#WeWantCody’ movement was in full force during this week’s episode of RAW, with the pro-Cody chants and chants of “Rocky Sucks” being acknowledged during the broadcast.
A press conference will take place later today with The Rock, Roman Reigns, and Cody Rhodes all expected to appear at the event.
