Booker T on Bayley and Sasha Banks
“You know, it’s been good, actually. It’s been good for both of them. Sasha Banks, she took that little hiatus for a while, time off and then came back. You wondered exactly what she was gonna, you know if she was gonna find herself.
If she was gonna land on her feet or not. She seems to have done that pretty well. Sasha’s a major player. She is one of the talents on the roster that you can always be able to go to and then know that she’s going to deliver, especially in a big match.
Bayley, it’s the same thing. Even though I’m always on Bayley’s case. Bayley is the quintessential worker. She can go out there and she may not be great at anything but she’s good at everything. So when I watch Bayley go out and perform now, taking on this new persona, which is something that I couldn’t wait to happen, I think it’s good for her, as well as we’re in this era again, this pandemic era.
Everything right now is kind of like on hold, in like a holding pattern and for those two to be in a position, in the holding pattern is perfect" - Booker T said. "People are ready to see Sasha go out and work. But right now, again, isn’t the time.
I’m all about timing, man. And right now, we gotta milk this thing as much as we possibly can. We gotta try to get as much out of every storyline on television right now just to literally prolong what we’re going through right now.
One thing about this business, man, when you’re in the ring it’s always about time. It’s always about, ‘the clock is ticking’. You better make that time too or your ass may get fired" - he added.
