The Rock is undoubtedly one of the biggest stars to have ever come out of the WWE. A match with him can do wonders for a wrestler’s CV, let alone one in the main event of SummerSlam, the biggest WWE pay per view of the year after Wrestlemania.
However, to Booker T, it is one that he doesn’t vividly recall due to how uncomfortable he was durng it. On his recent Hall of Fame podcast episode, the WWE Hall of Famer revealed that The Rock’s “detail-oriented” approach hard to work with.

“I remember my head was tied up like a pretzel because I was working with The Rock. The Rock was one of those guys (who looked at) intricate details. He was very, very detail-oriented to where he wanted everything to be pristine, everything had to be on time. Everything had to be right.
“Me, personally, I could appreciate someone who’s got that work ethic but, for me at that time, I was not comfortable working that style. I tell people all the time, people say, ‘It was a really good match,’ but, for me, I could not think about anything but the match when I was doing it. And that’s why the memories for me is not as vivid as if I were just freelancing, per se,”
Their match took place all the way back in WWE SummerSlam 2001. Booker T walked in as the WCW World Heavyweight Champion. Booker T had a bit of a help from Shane McMaho. However, the Rock managed to overcome both of them to win the WCW Championship for the first time.
