Booker T claims The Rock stole a number of his legendary famous catchphrases from him and even revealed what one of them may have been.
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is one of the most popular stars to have graced this planet. He may be known as a Hollywood big shot these days. However, he first earned his name in the WWE by making the fans fall in love with his mannerisms and catchphrases.
It seems however, that not everything the Rock had in his arsenal back then was truly his own. In an interview with Chris Van Vliet, former WWE Superstar Booker T revealed that the Great One may have borrowed a few of his famous lines from him.
Booker T claims The Rock stole a number of his catchphrases
“I had [the Book End] first. I’m not gonna sit here and go back and forth whether it’s disputed or not. I was the first one to do the Book End,” Booker T revealed. “I didn’t call it the Book End, then The Rock stole it just like The Rock stole a bunch of my catchphrases. I’m serious. He really did.”
When asked what those catchphrases were, Booker T refused to comment. He said that there was an unwritten rule about letting such stories remain untold. The former World Heavyweight Champion did however later say: “if you smell what I’m cooking.”
The Rock went on to have a legendary career in the WWE; 10-time World Champion in the WWE and multiple Mania main events. Booker T himself did very well. A very popular World Title reign and WrestleMania headlining act even earned him a Hall of Fame induction back in 2013.
