Wrestling veteran Black Bart has worked with several pro wrestlers in his long career. He also worked with Booker T in back in 1992, when Booker T was still starting out in the pro wrestling world.
Black Bart recently spoke on UnSKripted, where he revealed an interesting story about Booker T from his time in Global Wrestling Federation. During one of their matches together, Black Bart thought of branding Booker T’s buttocks with a hot branding iron.
Bart noted that General Skandar Akbar heated the branding iron when the match began. Bart understood he needed to do something in order to make Booker T come down for the spot.
In the end, it resulted in Booker T getting branded and him screaming in agony.
“We get this great idea that we are going to really brand Booker T. In other words, the match starts, and Akbar is supposed to just heat it up, the branding on it, just before. He starts full blasting on that branding iron at the beginning of the match, and you can see the branding iron starting to turn red. We are on TV and I have to do something to him to get Booker T down. We are supposed to have that pad. You know what I’m saying, with paper or something. My hands meet that branding iron, it’s red hot and I stuck it to his butt. A shot of smoke came up and boom! Booker T went ‘Yaaaahhh!’ and took off saying, ‘Bart’s burning me.’ I said, ‘Man,’ I said, ‘You, silly son of a gun, come here we got to do this.’ No!’ he went running with his butt smoking them dadgum. There was a B on it.”
Despite his rocky beginnings, Booker T went on to become a very successful pro wrestler in both WCW and WWE.
