Booker T Takes Issue With Daniel Cormier Fantasy Booking

Booker T took issue with Daniel Cormier booking a possible angle in WWE before even agreeing to a contract.

For those that missed it, DC confirmed this week he’s been talking with WWE. He told Sports Illustrated he would like to come in as an announcer and perhaps transition to the ring. He then laid out a scenario where he was working on announce and Roman Reigns confronted him.

On his Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T discussed how he did not like how guys want to come in and book their own matches and angles. He said he was not hating on DC but guys looking to come in and relive their glory days. He pointed to Cain Velasquez who has already been released from WWE. Book explained the importance of making it in the locker room before thinking you could book your own program. He said DC’s accolades in UFC validate him for commentary but not as a main event Superstar.

Ariel Helwani of ESPN threw his hat in the ring by tweeting to Booker T.

“Hey @BookerT5x, my guy DC can do whatever the hell he wants. Do you know who you’re talking about here? Show some respect for the double champ,” Helwani wrote. “You better not hope he shows up over there because let me tell you he isn’t showing up alone … sucka.”

Book responded with a famous line.

“Ariel, you didn’t say that. Tell me you didn’t just say that……”

Below are the original tweets:
