WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle is a true veteran in the pro wrestling world and he has competed in many promotions during his time as an active wrestler. During his time in WWE, he has seen several backstage fights and that includes the infamous fight between Batista and Booker T.
While speaking on the most recent edition of ‘The Kurt Angle Show’ on AdFreeShows.com, Kurt Angle talked about the backstage fight between the two. Angle said that Batista wanted to work with different Superstars around the time when many wrestlers were injured.
“I was there after the fight ended, but I heard what occurred. Batista got there for a commercial shoot. We were all doing a commercial. I think it was for SummerSlam, and someone approached him and Batista said, ‘When are you coming over to SmackDown because I have nobody to work with,’ and Booker took that as, ‘Wait a minute, I’m on SmackDown, there are a lot of people to work with.’ I think Batista was just saying because there were a lot of injuries going on, it was getting a little bare at the top, and he was just trying to tell the person I’d love for you to come over and work a program with you.”
Angle then recalled how Booker T walked away with a black eye and even Batista was hurt as well from the fight. Angle stated that the fight happened due to a misunderstanding between Booker T and Batista and that it was a shame the fight even happened.
“I got there afterward, I saw Booker T had a black eye, and Batista was a little banged up, and you know, I just thought it was a big misunderstanding. I know they apologized afterward and made up and whatever they had to do to move on, but I just think it was a big misunderstanding, and they just misunderstood each other about the whole situation. It was a shame; it really was.It didn’t have to happen.
Booker T is a WWE Hall Of Famers now while Batista is now very busy with his life in Hollywood. It is likely fans will get to see Batista get inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame next year as it didn’t happen this year.
