With little face power on Raw other than RVD, Kane and a 50 year old Ric Flair, I think now is a good time to give Booker T a face run in the WWF? Hell, he's got a couple good catch phrases, he's endorsing Fried Chicked, and he was a pretty good face in WCW. Now might be a good time to test the waters and see if the fans are going to take to him or not.

He seems to be getting some cheers already anyway. I think he could have a good run as a face, although I have enjoyed him as a heel thus far.

While his heel schtick has been hilarious, I think Booker could easily get over as a face. Unfortunately, the split has robbed him of the easiest way to do it: getting increasingly sick of Kurt Angle horning in on his "cool" vibe and giving the dork a big ol' axe kick to the head. I would've so loved to see the blow-off match from that feud.

yeah, his wcw title matches with kurt have been the best of his wwf run. kind of odd how they came at the beginning though.

his growing reaction with the wwf crowd is, imo, directly related to him "performing" more in the ring. he's not getting all bug eyed and running from austin anymore - he's starting to wrestle more. that could either be the booking or he's adapting to the wwf ring or a combination of both.

i don't remember him standing out in wcw until he won the tv title and, you know, actually cared about it and started having good singles matches. there was the lame four corners #1 contender match where harlem heat took on lex and the giant some time before that but it didn't help anybody.

You wanna get Booker T over? Simple, I say! Have Book & Benoit Best of 7 series: the REMATCH! This time, show all the matches, and let them go at it for a MINIMUM of 15 minutes per match. Let the score get to 3-3, then have the final be a 30(or 45 or 60)-minute ironman match that goes to the limit with a tie at the end. Have them shake hands, get the mad mutual respect going, then BOOM! new stable/team!



There are no facts-only observational postulates in an endlessly regenerative hodgepodge of predictions. Consensus reality requires a fixed frame of reference. In a multilevel, infinite universe, there can be no fixity; thus, no absolute consensus reality. In a relativistic universe, it appears impossible to test the reliability of any expert by requiring him to agree with another expert. Both can be correct, each in his own inertial system.

Several problems there. One, Booker and Benoit are now in different companies. Two, I'm sure many fans would be pissed off at a Best Of Seven Series going to a tie (I know I would be). Three, there's no guarantee that that would get him over with the WWF fans.

I say just turn him face by sticking him against the nWo. Personally, I'd have turned him after Mania by reuniting E&C as a heel unit. But that's just me.

I think Booker would be a lousy face for the same reason Angle was...He's such a great heel. And he's a great heel for largely the same reasons Angle is. The difference is Angle is brilliant at playing his character as a big dork, while Booker IS just a big dork. He's not trying to be funny. He just IS funny.

I think they should turn Booker T face, giving him and Intercontinental or maybe tag title run, followed by a heel turn at the end of this year. I think Booker has great face potential, but if he is ever going to reach main event status in the WWF I think it will be as a heel.

Actually, now is a great time to turn Booker face, since most of the RAW brand's upper carders are heels.

Maybe Kane, RVD, and Booker team up against the nWo?

I could dig it.

Booker can break into the top tier as a face, and I think he will if they give him the shot on RAW. He does fit the bill as upper-card guy to help Kane and go against nWo. And who better than one of the few people from wCw who didn't join the first time?




Insert clever comment.

eke, you have quite the point there. And I feel your pain with anticipation towards KOTR. It seems that once again Triple H's never ending push will get him on both shows. And I really was looking forward to a good KOTR this year with so many fresh faces.
