WWE Corridor of Famer Booker T has said that King Corbin has been a greater King of the Ring winner than Stone Chilly Steve Austin.
Booker T is a two-time Corridor of Famer, multi-time world champion, and gained the King of the Ring event in 2006.
On his Corridor of Fame podcast, Booker T was requested who has been the perfect “King” in WWE, aside from himself. He stated that King Corbin has tried to recreate what he did when he turned King and stated that the SmackDown star might be the perfect King of the Ring winner after him.
“, I am simply retaining it actual, exterior of myself – King Booker was essentially the most majestic king that has worn the crown, whoever adorned the gown, the royal sceptre, in addition to the insignia… there was just one king that I can actually take into consideration so far as, you realize, stepping up and actually is King Corbin. No, I am severe. I recognize all of the Kings which have come alongside, however Corbin has actually taken the function similar to I did, he is believed within the function to create, you realize, for me, my very own world, the SmackDown world, the SmackDown kingdom. That is one thing that Corbin has making an attempt to recreate, so I give Corbin… quite a lot of the fellows that wore the gown – they only wore the gown, they only wore the crown. I’ve talked to Steve Austin about it and the perfect kings about it. , they bought Steve Austin at No. 1 (greatest King of the Ring ballot) and I am going, ‘how does this occur?’ That is what the polls say. Pretend polls. I’d give King Corbin the rub.”
Booker T said that quite a lot of the King of the Ring winners did not actually dive deep into the character and as a substitute simply wore the robes and crowns that include successful the event.
