Two-time WWE Hall of Famer Booker T recently took to his “Hall Of Fame” podcast, where he spoke about topics such as competing in the first-ever Elimination Chamber Match at the 2002 WWE SummerSlam Event that was won by fellow WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels.
Booker T said:
“I felt like I was out of my comfort zone. A lot of things I couldn’t control as far as whether I was going to get hurt or not. Bouncing off a cage is very, very unforgiving. For me, Elimination Chamber match, the first one in WWE of that era, it was like working in hell. There’s no way you cannot get hurt. Those types of matches are for guys like pain freaks [that have] something to prove to the world, to themselves, you know, and looking to leave a mark.”
