Booker T reacts to the Rock’s comments about Zelina Vega’s return to WWE
In a recent episode of the “Hall Of Fame” podcast, Booker T covered some of the recent wrestling news and spoke about Zelina Vega’s return and The Rock’s recent comments about her.
Here are some highlights from the show:
Booker thanked The Rock for the kind comments he made last week about wishing he could have a longer schedule with him:
“It’s cool that The Rock put me like this. I really appreciate that The Rock said those kind words when telling me that I’m one of the more athletic guys and I’m pretty much a hell of a hard worker. I get props like that from a lot of guys like that, like Bret Hart. Bret Hart is one of the guys who said he really enjoys working with me at WCW.
I really think he liked working with me because there was chemistry. There was intensity. There was a reality to being in the ring with him. So hearing that from The Rock means a lot, telling him that he wished our feud would last a lot longer. Actually it should have, me being the guy from WCW coming up, and me still being interviewed, The Rock, Booker T, I thought it could have been a six month or a year marriage to The Rock s ‘it was done correctly. The reason why this was not done? I cannot answer this question. I’ve always said that when WWF bought WCW, they raised a flag, they planted it and said, “We won this war. It’s finish.’
Thank you brother. Me too in fact. One of my biggest regrets was not having a long term with Book. He was one of my favorite workers and the best pure athlete I have ever wrestled. Fluid, precise and believable movements and working style. I always say that his movements had a rare swagger air.

Booker said he was happy to see Zelina Vega again in WWE:
“For me to have someone like Zelina Vega, someone who knows how to go out and ring your bells, knowing how to make you feel a certain way when you see her come out in the ring, I think, again , I don’t think she should have gotten a notice or anything. I know business is business, but someone like Zelina Vega, you want her on your list. You want her in that locker room with all ladies because more importantly, then again, when there’s not a lot that we’re highlighting, we know we can highlight Zelina Vega, and we can get numbers there. I saw the Instagram photos because she still posts. Just that. She’s got a lot of followers.
