"On the mothership, ESPN well out front of Chris Paul standpoint. If the Phoenix Suns win Game one tomorrow and Chris Paul was able CB three They were playing game two. Okay, They're fine, but If you fall behind 10 I mean, you fall behind one in the series, and Chris Chris Paul comes back. You're still behind in the series, so that's why I'm going to go with the bucks, But I want them. I'm selfishly. I want the Phoenix Suns to get to the NBA Finals because they It's something that Chris Wallace never done his career right. It shows that Monty Williams is one of the top head coaches in the in the NBA and Is that moment for Devin Devin Booker. We know what Devin Booker has done. Basketball fans know about Devin Booker. But I think the casual basket basketball fans still annoyed. Still do not know a lot about Devin Booker. Let the sons get to the NBA finals and everybody is going to. They're going to put some respect behind the name of Devin Booker. Yeah, I mean, book members scored 70 in a game before. Um, then what they did last year in the bubble. Eight straight winds didn't lose a game in the bubble, and I think that was some momentum that they built off this year. Obviously, acquiring someone like Cp three is the biggest reason. But there are some. There's some seedlings that were planted last year in the bubble.

"The Masters had great ratings. The Kentucky Derby had great ratings. The playoffs NBA playoffs have had great ratings. Now it seems to be getting back to normal. Do you expect America to have really good ratings and everyone watching the Olympics? I do. I mean, the Olympics is one of those things that you just kind of can't avoid. It's kind of everywhere and everybody kind of gets involved. So I think the ratings will be good. Even though this is a year after we were supposed to have the summer lipids, I just think It's your one opportunity to see. Most of these athletes compete for the last time in four years.

"With that starting five win a gold medal. And that's starting five could be in a tough bronze medal game. I think I mean, I think they would win a gold man. They can win a gold medal. Sure, but it does feel a bit like 2000 and four where The talent was there, but we weren't necessarily sending our best players. There was a lot of youth on that team, and you thought that there might be somewhat vulnerable. Now I'm always gonna pick America to win the gold medal in basketball. We haven't wanted what one time since NBA players were allowed to compete. But I think this is one of those years where I don't know. I mean, Bill and Lillard and Booker. They could be really good, but let's see how the rest of the team rounds out. First of all, I think you're being harsh because I mean, look at the other best players in the world. Lot of them are actually from countries that I don't think their teams are going to be great. So like, yeah, honest, I think is going to play with Greece. But Greece is probably not going to be great. Luca plays with Slovenia. That's not going to be a great team. You know. Poor seniors plays with Latvia. You know, I do Think Yokich on Serbia. That's a team that I think I mean, you probably you know, there was that Spanish team that was good for years. I think probably the Serbian team will be the one that you get the most trouble with, but I think you're being a little hard. I think you have this nineties nostalgia that you want the dream team. You know Devin Booker, Damian Lillard and Jayson Tatum are pretty daggone. Good, aren't they as a group? Very good players. We don't know if the as a group part is true yet right because a big part of is how they come together because you're going to have a bunch of guys are used to be in the stars, and I think we talk a lot about Carmelo Carmelo Anthony and play in the gold medal games in the Olympics. Why he's been so good. Because he knows how to kind of take a back seat to the other stars Booker and Lillard and build all of those guys think a minute to play. The ball is mine. So how do they come together? I also think we got to remember. The European leagues have improved dramatically over the last 20 years. There are a ton of guys overseas. Now who could play in the NBA doing that? We just don't know him, right? You just don't know him, so I think this is going to be competitive, and there's a chance that I don't know this team could be somewhat vulnerable when it comes to winning the gold medal. I don't think there'll be a guarantee. Would you? I mean for these players, it's got to be difficult because the the Anything but a gold medals, a huge failure. And if and even if you win, people don't give you any credit. They're like. Well, of course you were supposed to win. You all are the Americans, But I agree with you. I mean, it's certainly clear that these have got the countries have gotten closer. I still think America will be the favorite. Even with the roster, they will have I think another thing that favors America, though, is that the NBA game has changed to become a lot more like the international game. I mean for years, like hurt us is the NBA was playing basketball differently than the rest of the world. And they were much more physical. They are much more interior oriented. Now we're playing the same stuff they are, and I actually think that helps. Oh, yeah. I think this is far more. Of a euro friendly NBA style and the guys are you just named. Those are all guys who can spread the floor hit shots from deep playing space, but they're going to be going up against the guys who invented this style. Right? You're playing some of these teams. The advantages you have in Europe is The skill work that happens at a very early age in these countries. And a lot of that the dream team countries decided we're never going to beat these guys. When it comes to athleticism. We have to be more skilled. And I think America could run into one of those highly skilled teams, and they could have a tough game. They're gonna have some to hate that you I hate that you're basically cheering against the United States of America and being a pessimist. I mean, I used to think of you as a little bit of a patriot like someone who's sort of love the Stars and Stripes and the Eagles fly. Now it sounds like you just think we're going to go over there and lose every game by 30. I just don't want to be embarrassed if we lose because that's the thing If we lose in basketball, it feels like we've lost the entire Olympics, right. Like that's how it feels, right. Yes. Well, let me ask you this. Do you think I mean We have seen high TV ratings. So during Covid TV rains for all sports went down, and there was a conversation about like our our television ratings collapsing for sports, and then really, since the calendar got back to normal, we've seen high ratings. The Masters had great ratings in Kentucky Derby had great ratings. The playoffs NBA playoffs have had great ratings. Now it seems to be getting back to normal. Do you expect America to have really good ratings and everyone watching the Olympics? I do. I mean, the Olympics is one of those things that you just kinda can't avoid. It's kind of everywhere and everybody kind of gets involved. So I think the ratings will be good. Even though this is a year after we were supposed to have the Summer Olympics.

The Bare Bones HUD for Tourneys and Anonymous Sites

"So the barebones hud has seven elements to it. I'm gonna hit them each one at a time right now but i forgot to mention this earlier before the combat if you go to the show notes page for today smart booker said dot com slash bare bones hud. You can see a youtube video. That i posted there showing exactly how to create the seven element hood for yourself already. So the first element is the note editor now. This is in poker tracker for the no editor is super important because it's necessary for color coating your opponents by player type once you make some kind of read on them also in case you want to put a player note for when you're reviewing hands later on that note editor is important and lastly within the note editor if you've never actually opened up and take a look or taken a look. There is an auto notes feature that list. The hands that your opponent has shown down and how they played them pre flop did they three bit with pocket kings did they call with pocket kings. Whatever might be now. The second element is the player name now of course this is especially useful for tournaments when players. Come and go right as you're playing. You're paying attention to the action or paying attention to another table. Maybe and you might miss that. Bob one-two-three he left the table and is replaced by susan. Seven eight nine but that hud sometimes doesn't catch up for one or two hands so it's a really good idea to see that name. Make sure they correspond when they do. You know those hud stats belong to that player and now you can make some reads based on the base on the percentages to exploit them all right. The third element is the number of hands. Of course the more hands you have on a player just the more reliable. The numbers are in general. I think that reliability kind of begins at eighteen hands. If you're playing six. Max that's three orbits or flooring to orbits right so everybody has seen every position at least twice or three times. You start to develop reads right there. I'm not saying it's one hundred percent reliable. But that's where it begins. Eighteen hands two. Or three rounds. However you can start to understand your opponent after just four hands. Truly if they're v. Pippen forehands is one hundred percent. You're likely against a lose player right likely. Not one hundred percent sure but it's pretty close loose play right. There played for hands out of the four that you've seen them and being dealt if there is zero percent in twelve hands very likely a tight player now. Let's couple this with some other stuff right. If they're veep hip in four hands is one hundred percent. And you're thinking to yourself sky. That's not good enough to know that he's a loose player. Well what if you've been paying attention and you've seen those forehands where he v pipped two times. He called a to bet the two other times he limped and called a raise. Yeah now that you couple the actual actions. They've made with that one. Hundred percent v pip. You are up against super loose and passive fish and it's only been four hands but here's one of the critical things you've got to be willing to change any early. Read that you make. Because as you play more hands their stats are gonna converge to their actual tendencies. And maybe that's around fifty sixty hands or so and anything beyond that one hundred two hundred and you get yet. You're pretty darn certain that those numbers are they're tendencies and you can really start to exploit it then all right. So those first three things were elements not statistical elements but just useful parts of the hud. These next two right here are where the stats start in. These two are the most critical stats to have v. pip and pf are now these an initial read on their player type over time. Like i said everyone's tendencies play out and the numbers converge and you can be pretty confident that that forty slash five player. Yeah super loos fish right the other eighteen slash six team player totally tied aggressive. That's probably what your stats end up in the long run and that other guy thirty three slash twenty-seven yeah super loose aggressive player. Right and that other player even the maniac fifty slash forty two you have super maniacal player now by knowing their player type and just using. Epfr to get you that you can better play the player with your list of general exploits that you know work against each player type

"Booker out there with her because he has sway. With so many younger people that that's what that takes. And so Booker has to be on board almost like a running mate. But want to see how it all works out because there are other things that can happen for Booker down the road. Some people think he could. He might be the next mayor, or he might run against Rand Paul next We'll see how that works out. Eventually, I will talk with him on the radio and pick his brain about some of these things. But Amy made grants got quite a job ahead of her. And that goes without saying, of course, up against the Senate majority leader. Even though Chuck Schumer has shoveled all this money at her, you see That people's hearts and minds so many were with Charles Booker that he almost equaled her vote total. She didn't win by that much, and that was without any money without much money. He did get some generated there late, and I remember I talked to that woman from the predict its company. The predictions people. It's kind of a gambling house thing. But she said that Amy McGrath had a 67% chance or something stronger then I don't remember now, but Bookers. Chance of winning Wass. 35 or something it was is almost half that. And then she explained the differential. And then she said that Booker had climbed up the 50 something percent, 53% or something like that right after Bernie Sanders. Endorsed him, and that's when he had the most Momenta MBE going.

"booker" Discussed on Today, Explained

"Rumer back when there were like twenty Democratic candidates vying for the nomination there are a lot old white guys but there are a fair a number of candidates who weren't when they'd all get up on stage together for a debate. The Democratic Party almost looked like America and then there was last night six candidates stage debating all of them white most of them have got sixty or seventy birthdays under their belts would just two weeks until will the Iowa Caucus. It is clear that things have changed. It happened over the course of the past month. Comma Harris dropped out in December in Castro throw dropped out in early January and then just on Monday cory booker gave up. Booker stopped by boxes offices. Here in DC late last week. His campaign campaign wasn't in great shape at the time and I asked him what went so wrong. Well I think the DNC did not realize that they were making rules. That were new. We've never seen before that ultimately has ended up advantage ing people who have either a lot of money personally who can hack the system or people who through their sort of per sows. Well no can get money quickly working against the candidates who are actually become president for our Party in the past where people that were way behind from for most of the campaign. Jimmy Carter low single digits Bill Clinton closing with Brock Obama going into our caucus national polls. Fifteen twenty points behind and they've actually she designed rules that would have kept him of our nominee off remember one month before the Iowa caucuses. John Kerry John Edwards were at four percent and two percent sixth and seventh in the polling. Then would go awan and finish Iowa one to be vice president and presidential candidates. When you make the whole election about national polls we would not have had presidents like Clinton John and Carter and Obama we national polls did not predict? They're winning heck national polls in predict the last president they were wrong and so I say this I islands and they laugh. I joked with him. I say you are pretty good defying. What the national polls are telling you vote for polling is not the industry and so when you see people like Castro and Comal will harass? I've worked with lots of people in politics. These are two of the more talented people that through their lived experiences. We're bringing things to the table that made so many Americans. It's a core part of our democratic voting base. Feel the sense of pride and gratitude when they left because they didn't have enough money to get to the voters actually actual people who vote even black women. My own family were supporting me. Where like angry and felt some kind of way that a woman could win twice in California statewide right and be extraordinary? Standout rising star in the Senate can't even get to Iowa to be voted upon and that is very problematic. That's the party Freddie side of it. What about the people side of it? What about Joe Biden? Still being the front runner in national polling does the party still want Biden because of his connection to Obama. Instead of someone like you never before in our lifetime has a front runner in the Democratic Party throughout ever going to be president you know when Mondale Gore her even Hillary Clinton the last lecture all front runners. The only people I've ever gone to the White House for people like me who are come from behind people people at the national media Wasn't given that much of a chance but then came into those early states. You have to win by your connection to people. You're really organized by your ability to convince people in town halls calls. Those are the people that have gone on to win in our party so love Joe Biden swarming into the United States Senate but to exclude from the stage. People people are different people that don't have the money or the popularity or the name recognition and not even. Give them a chance to make their case When we clearly see the last person to make the debate stages somebody's he's been spending tens of millions of dollars on TV? Trust me if I had that money we would be on the debate stage and and so that's problematic that the party that saying we want to get big money out of politics. The party that saying that we think there's too much of an influence of concentrated wealth to create a system that can be so easily hacked by it Senator Booker and I talked two bunch more. We talked about his campaign and whether his message of Love was really the right one for this moment and a lot of the conversation feels kind of moot now that he's dropped up but what he said about polling and the new rules imposed by the DNC struck a chord. So I asked vox is Ellen Nelson if there's truth to it. She's been covering this election season most recently from new you answer and we started with a simple question is he right. I mean in a sense he is. I mean it's kind of ironic because basically DNC chair. Tom Perez kind of. You've had this job of trying to figure out how to try to give everybody a fair shake or appear to give everybody a fair shake on the debate stage. There were twenty candidates running at that point it was Janus. I mean this was back when we were having two different debate nights because we literally couldn't get everybody on a single stage in one night so they came came up with these new requirements. That booker is talking about that. Folks would have to make a pulling requirements and this could either be a certain percentage in national polls or for a certain percentage in a number of qualifying early state. Polls so polls in Iowa New Hampshire Nevada and South Carolina and then additionally you would have to you have a fundraising threshold that you met and rather than just being a lump sum that you had to meet you also had to have a certain number of of donations A threshold of donations. That you met Peres told me in an interview back in the spring. This was supposed to be a way to respond to the party's grassroots to make sure sure that the grass roots were included and to try to be more inclusive of candidates and responsive to the grassroots of the Party and what booker is saying hanging that this did the opposite that sort of these thresholds that increased each time. There is a new debate. There's debates every month each it's time these thresholds increased kind of kept winnowing down the fields. which is sort of what the DNC designed to do but at the same time it shut out these candidates? Let's that were pulling low. Who really needed to make the debate stage for people to get exposed to them in addition to their early state campaigning? So it was sort of almost like the debates became these many primaries themselves and we kept sort of seeing people drop out after they failed to to qualify to make the debate thresholds and we should note that the fields now twelve but only six made the stage last night. Yes exactly Senator Booker. An Andrew Yang both met the donor threshold for last night's debate but their poll numbers are what kept him off stage. But these are certainly two candidates voters like. Is there something that the polls are missing or even getting wrong by chance. I don't think that the polls are necessarily wrong. I I just think that it's part of a really tough situation of still being in a a pretty massive field having so much focus. Sp on the the forefront runners at this point who are all white you know. We're talking about Biden Warren Sanders and Buddha judge but I think that it is a combination the nation of the size of the field and sort of struggling to break through these debate requirements and then also the fact that people in the early states. That booker is talking about you. Know the ones that he was sort of trying to rest his campaign with to do well in Iowa. Barack Obama did well in Iowa. A lot of people are are sort of worried about this electability question and so a lot of people are I feel like becoming a little bit more risk averse than they might have been in past elections because there's there's sort of this specter of a general election with Donald Trump looming over all of this and everybody is well aware that whoever they pick you know could be the democratic radic nominee. That person is going to have to go up against trump. And so when you're sort of caught in this loop this kind of feedback loop of like low-polling and not getting on the debate bates stage so you're not getting the exposure voters that I have talked to you in New Hampshire definitely start to take notice and I have heard with folks like booker Sometimes sometimes with Amy Klobuchar who wasn't debate stage last night. You know. I really like that candidate. They really speak to me. I think they're really smart. I think they're really great eight but they're not pulling well which makes me think that other people don't like them and that makes me nervous because we need to have somebody that everybody likes to a defeat. Donald Trump. What is it about a booker or a Kamla Harris or a Hooligan Castro? That didn't strike a chord. The way say mayor. Pete did well. You have to remember that. So that the order of the early states I mean there are four in total but Iowa goes first. New New Hampshire goes second and these are the two most white states. Like New Hampshire is like ninety percent totally white people apple. Iowa's something around like eighty five and I think that is tough. I mean Barack Obama kind of had this electricity in two thousand eight where he was able a to to do really well in Iowa but I think this time around not to say that a booker and Harris were polling super well in South Carolina. Because I think that the the polls there showed that folks like Joe Biden Bernie Sanders two white candidates where we're doing better among African American voters in South Carolina's well but the fact is is that in in order to do well in Nevada and South Carolina. You I have to do well in Iowa New Hampshire which are two overwhelmingly white states. So you're you're you're meeting a lot of older white voters and I think a lot of these folks that I've talked to New Hampshire when they look back at what went wrong in two thousand sixteen. They're really focused. On sort of this idea of arrest belt working class white voters that didn't turn out for Hillary Clinton and voted with Donald Trump. And I think that they are sort of more anxious about what that person has to think in the twenty twenty general election. Then say you know a block voter in in Michigan. Who didn't didn't turn out or a black voter in the south who didn't turn out there? They're kind of worried about other white people. Okay GEICO field is looking a lot less diverse. But there's at least still to women who are on the stage during last night's debate right and it's like anyone sitting around asking whether whether a woman can be president trump right right on today explained.

"Activists wanted and so he started kind of trying to change. He tried to kind of change his image before for he went to the Senate and then when he was elected to the Senate he said I'm going to make Criminal Justice reform my big issue. That's going to be that. That's going to v micro shade and to his credit and this is a big part of why I like him as a politician for all of his faults. He's follow through on that. He stuck with it. You stuck with it when I first I came to Washington Chuck Grassley speaking out against our efforts to reform. Now he's joined with us. This is not a left right issue Democrat. This is really an American movement. That's is beginning to happen. It's really promising when you have the coke brothers supporting this Newt Gingrich Guiding Grover Norquist. Very well known. Republicans are really outsing week. This system is just not fair. He spent a lot of time working across the aisle trying to come up with bipartisan bills. Guys like Mike Lee From Utah or Rand Paul from Kentucky you start working these guys come up with bill could conceivably pass and then he eventually did play a role in helping to craft and lobby for and Marshal support for this. This thing called the first step act that was passed into law. That Dontrelle Seimas in office. Yeah for the first time in over a decade. Republicans and Democrats came together to enact commonsense reforms that are intended to make our criminal justice system. More fair the first step axe led to the release of thousands of nonviolent federal prisoners. Can we do more yes This legislation is the product of compromise. This legislation is just one step in the right direction but if so he was the most important criminal justice reform years and he played a role in that he played from all reports. That I've seen an important role in that. What's interesting about how you present the criminal justice reform? I think is that you talk about it as a personal crusade for him because Bernie and Elizabeth Warren they have personal nor Crusades. Yes they're on here and so does booker. But the other moderates don't really yes. It's hard to say what like butchers personal crusade at this point right like he started off his campaign by going on as clients podcast and talking about the need to make fundamental democratic institutional additional reform which got a lot of people like excited about adding states and changing the electoral college and getting rid of the filibuster and reforming the Supreme Court even and just the higher higher. He's gone in the polls and the more successful he's become the further. He has gone from that stuff. He's kind of dropped it for me. He's still talks about it and then but it's not at the center of his campaign and there's been some I'm reporting that he's de-emphasized it because of donors Just really discouraging and then Biden. I mean what's Biden's crusade other than he's wanted to be present for a really long time time a really really long time and kind of make America peaceable again must make America chill again. I don't Oh now and booker you know. The love thing is corny. I believe this is his campaign slogan. Yeah can't leave the people if you don't love the people. All of the Booker Booker really does love people. I think he genuinely believes at this point in criminal justice reform and someone's big ideas are also about just racial justice more broadly economic racial justice. This idea called baby bonds which I described as the closest thing. Anyone suggest to reparations. It's this idea that you give every kid who is born a savings account and then every year the government will put some money into it or at least under certain income. They'll put some money into it. And then the poorer you are the more you get from the government and then when you turn eighteen you can use that money for education or buying a house or some sort of investment investment activity right. The idea is to close the wealth gap between the rich and poor but because the way because of the breakdown income and wealth by Race I. It's a big boost. WHO's to black kids? And so if depending how you measure it. It goes a long way to closing the wealth gap at the median. it's an interesting idea and it's an it's been floating around around for a while and he embraced that he's also he's also done some edgier things these talked about restoring funding to Tanith better known as Welfare and actually increasing food stamp funding which might be why some people have trouble thinking of him as a moderate because he he does talk about these issues like racial justice and building up the welfare state in a way that classic classic moderates don't but I still slot him in there because he doesn't go for really the full bore. left-wing left wing ideas like pushing for Medicare for all now though source of institutional forms like eliminating the filibuster. I mean he has no health care plan and that we can see he actually has. He has not much I as a healthcare writer. I should be more offended by that that I am but but I think you think there's kind of honesty there. I mean there is because like in the end the congress is going to be the only writes it right and he's he's sort of admitting he's he said I think Medicare for all is a good goal. We're not GONNA do it anytime soon. We're not taking hundred fifty million people's private insurance away in one fell swoop because people would freak out. Let's let's work on making reforms. That are more doable. You said that you personally are not gonNa vote for Cory Booker. I Yeah I mean I'm I'm probably GONNA vote for war and a Bernie but you know if booker if it. Let's put this way if Warren and Bernie were weren't there I would definitely pick booker. He's your number three. He's my number three he's my he's my first choice. Moderate which might just mean. He's the left most that realistically that might just mean he's the left most moderate but I think the the more charitable him to say is that he's the moderate who actually has some sort of vision for what he wants to do with the presidency. That isn't just check. The ambitions for of leftists or just be president so why. Write this article though. We're arguing for moderates to take another look at Booker. Why not write something trying to convince them to look at Warren or Bernie? Yeah I mean. There's an argument that maybe I should spend much energy pushing for the candidates who I personally love but I still think that there are people out there who who are turned off by by Sander's insistence on on single payer or his his rhetorical commitment to Democratic Socialism. Even if he really is pushing going for is mostly sort of new deal. Actual new deal liberalism. Let's leave that aside. You know and there are people who are queasy about Warren for one razor razer another lately. I've been questioning some of her political instincts. I think she's I think four days at a five. She's like a fantastic politician. She's like a pitcher with a a to winnow. Era and then on the fifth day she just gives up seven runs just like mess up on like the native American heritage thing or Medicare for all things she she is a habit of of kind of these big stumbles. That you don't necessarily see coming That's a little disconcerting to me so so if people are looking for a someone who who was never committed themselves really wholeheartedly to passing Medicare for all for instance or isn't talking about Revolution Booker's a good option and after you wrote this novel a couple of New York magazine. Writers looked around the idea or like Cory Booker said. Hey Hey Jordan Weisman over. Its slate things. We should look cory booker. Why aren't we looking at Cory Booker? And I thought it was really interesting. The place they landed was that they I agree with you. Essentially except they said Cory Booker has not demonstrated his electability. Yeah that's his big challenge. The same we're talking about. The women not demonstrating their electability. Yeah it's this huge problem. It's the Biden problem right. There's a cliche at this point. I don't know if it's true but it's sort of the conventional journalism that black voters want some proof that white people will also vote for their candidate before they commit commit. Yeah but and that's what happened to Obama. All right. He won in Iowa and up until that moment he'd been having trouble getting traction with black voters and then after that they show he can also win white voters okay. He's our guy too and with cory booker. You same with Paul hairs to some extent you would assume that there's some constituency in the black community and Biden has just sucked up those votes in South Carolina Biden is the third candidate for the black community. So you know he can't break through to what would seem like his natural constituency fiction C.. And he's not breaking in Iowa yet where people seem to be falling in love with Pete. So it's like where where. Where does he have breakthrough moment? And it's not clear I mean it's electric bill. Anything is hard because it's it's all about race a lot of it is. Yeah I mean the catch twenty two almost for our Democrat or win the Democratic nomination. You have to black voters between black voters. You have to convince Winston that you can also win white voters and for White voters. You have to convince them that you're electable. It's tricky Jordan Weisman. Thank you so much for joining me.

"Because now everything listening knows that if you ever in the future, see Booker T and a wrestling ring, you have to know the no matter what is face looks. Like, no matter what his actions tell you. No matter what's going on. He doesn't wanna be there. He does Booker T does not want to be there. So I hope that's not from not just saying that he's a bit. I right. I I'm really not about just saying that. I mean, this all my guys have been trying to talk me back into the ring for a long time. We want you to do it. And I'm like, I just can't. But now have a reason right. We're using actually go out there and do it. You know, I'm I'm I'm going out there and facing literally wrecked Andrews this kid surprise. He's literally one of the best. The business is going to get a chance to see her in the future. This guy's going to have a hell of a career in the w that the I'm gonna just go out on a limb and say this kid's gonna have a hell of a career. But but for me to get my hands on the first testaments exactly how good he really is. You know, it's gonna be a pleasure for me come Saturday night. So, you know, I always come at you from the fan perspective whether into when we're talking whether it's on the kickoff shows, no matter where we because that's my perspective. That's all I know. And I'll tell you as a fan. When I think other fans are going to see when they're watching. This is not only get to see you not only get to see wrecks. But there's this idea in the back of all our heads that we're looking at the calendar. And we know it's that time of the year. We know that it's the it's the middle of January right and Booker TA is wrestling for the first time in four years. So in my mind, and I think in a lot of fans minds, we've got this picture of Vince McMahon hearing about the fact that this match happening 'cause you know, that Vince knows this matches happening hearing about the fact. Yeah. And hearing about this and going, you know book, we got the Royal rumble. We need a number twenty two in this Royal rumble match get your answering that ran we need your body. We need you in the rumble. What have you get the call? And Vince says look it's not a match. I know I know you don't want to have another match. You don't have to have another match. But number twenty two is wide open. We need it. We need Booker T in the rumble this year. Hey, you know, what an invitation to the rumble? I it's not something that you can turn down. Okay. You know? I just not like going out and having a singles match or anything like that. But you know, if I was to slip on a banana peel by you know, by the grace of God by somehow it win the on ramp. Right. I say I could set my set up self up for big downfall. Because that's how I was gonna say with your luck. It would be down to like Booker T and Johnson and Seth Rollins CNN. Seth Rollins eliminate each other and book is left in the main event of wrestlemainia beco- to. Roster..

"You know how those tables are. You never know what they're gonna do. What happened was when I, when I flat backed on that table, I just skipped off like someone skimming rock off a surface of a pond, right? And when I did my lower back, hit the legs of one of those announcers chairs, you know, with all the padding on them. So it's a heavy duty cheer. So what happened was broken three transverse processes in my back. Don't seem to stick out all three of them just snapped over. So my hand was never broken. Brokos three bones in my back, and I went to back and man. I was like. Wouldn't anew did. It was the way the both went. And so you put me perfect on the table. I just skipped off, but I had broken three moans in my back and I kept telling the guys, I said, listen, man, I said there's something wrong with my Bax gotta be broke is when they took me to the hospital. Whereas that night I went, I went home. I can't remember. And I got x Ray one, eight intern x Ray machine of high enough say, couldn't see. They said menu, fine. And I said, I'm telling you manage some Roma back. So what the San Antonio when I was living and sure enough. I go in turn x Ray up to a proper damn whatever setting for my girth and said, I got good news and bad news and said, the bad news is you broke through the transverse processes in your back. But the good news is when a fold over wages leave them, I get. So we're not gonna fix it. They'll just he'll up and you'll be fine. So then from from that day forward started going back to TV. There would be a doctor waiting for. Me and aggressive room before every show. And this is this is kind of leading into when I started doing a lot of the comedy stuff with card angle because the doctor would be an air. We made a bathroom. I'd have sixty milligrams a tour doll shot my ass now toward all as a non. It's a pain blocker. Yes, non narcotic pain blocker, but it works like a mug. It's just like a miracle drug. So before the shows every show on a road of working to tag, whatever until my back you up, someone was shooting me Fulla toward all. And that's why started doing those communists was Kurt because I couldn't get no heat because I was hurt. I couldn't do that. Do anything. That. Never do that. You never know. You never brought my hand. And when you put me through the table, it wasn't your fault. I hit the table skipped off. It was just a fluke that my back. What about if I remember. I don't remember hold out of stuff you know about wrestling wrestling spots. I remember that night vividly. I remember going over that and they told me, okay, what's going to happen is I remember going over, you're going to move everything paint. Take the TD's out. Take the top of and none of that was done and whom I, all of that stuff was still. So when you landed, you led to ride on the little top part which shouldn't have been there. And I thought those TV should've been removed as well. And and and that's what I remember to that to this day. Man, we've never talked about that, and I've heard several Stewart, Bruce, that story. But I do remember hearing JR tell this story that you just see, and that's the first time I ever heard about it. So that's just want to hear from you man. Always wondered about that. I know and I love Bruce Prichard any helped me out tremendously when I was in WWE. But that's, that's not the correct story. And Bruce premier storytelling. You know, he grew up watching Houston wrestling, just Like like you. that. That's the problem. I think that's the problem. Bruce, trying to get some material was. Controversy creates cash Booker by he's got the story. Bruce was a great storyteller. I could send him a good friend, but no, he had the story around. It was my back and it was never know he with you and me because I'll start seeing some Twitter stuff year to go whatever it was. Be carrying bags and shit like this. And like now that goal shit, that never happened. You never had no heat, and that's that was a damn truth. To get it. I do that myself..

"I've been training for this this. This is a moment that I've been. I've been relishing for for a long time, but I knew what my job was that night was go out there and bump all of those guys make them look, make them shine like new money doing. I get back to go like jet. You did a good job. You know what I mean? So I was trained to know what the test was in order to go out there and pass the test. Even, you know, when I first got in the Debussy well, from watching the movies that you wash that we're going to get through some images for second. But when watching the movies that you're watching working with Scott, Casey and Ivan punch q., who is a showman, like who stress to you that you need to be strong as a character, not just a work or going through the motions, that character because I believe that go through the motions is one thing. But when you have that all encompassing character that people can buy into when you combine all those things, I think that's when you draw draw money and you sell tickets. You know, Steve, I think that's the reason why I'm still here. Today that that's why I'm still, you know, relevant, you know, because you know, I think as yourself, you know, it's never really been about my about me along this journey. I mean, of course you know, I, I've been reaping the benefits of it, but but it's always been about getting the script, you know, I mean, how many characters have you been? You know, and every time you got the script, you went out there and try to make it the best you possibly could. You know when stone cold Steve Austin came that that's the one that stuff of course, but all the all the time getting to that point you made made it the best you possibly could along the way. So for me, getting the roll man taking that role in answering that role and making it, you know what I wanted to be, no matter what it was. It was GI bro. You know, I mean, I was GI back the day in Dallas page, you tell the story of listening to goes, you know, everybody saw me in the mirror to go. What are you doing. I used to work for a living man. You know what I mean? I just have nothing and now up doing something of having flood. So I bought my brother told me my brother's TV's. They man gonna help you get a job. He say, only thing I'm asking you to do man. You don't make me look bad and they just do the job to the best of your ability. I don't care if it's tweets and floors. I don't care if it's washing, say, do the job to the best of your ability to what next comes alone. And he said, you could do that, man. I, I'm a help you he. That's what he told me when I came home from prison in and and I, I believe in that to this day man, every script that I've gotten, you know, I just went out and did the job becoming the world champion. That's not something that I, I went home and dreamed about or anything. I just wanted to go out and be the best guy on the car. Each every night was I was not, you know, not what's stop five.

"I don't know. A lot of times I could see when guys getting ready to go out and have a match when getting ready to glide form and play wrestler, you know, for me coming out of the turtle, that moment in time was frozen because I really believe in what I was getting ready to go out there and do. Dude, I agree with you hundred percent. When I was out there, it didn't matter whether it's promo weather's a match and it was. This was interesting thing, and I don't know how long it took for you to really find yourself as a character and a character that you told me believed in. It took me a while because I remember you know, in in US a. even in class and world championship wrestling in Atlanta, I was Steve Austin. I was stunning Steve Austin, but I didn't really know what that meant. All of a sudden when I kinda started getting up a come up in that stone cold idea and I turned into stone cold and I started growing in that character. And I was dude if I was to be a mess. And I believed that I could beat anybody's ass. I believe it was a hundred and twenty percents you now I was working, but I believed it and that to me is for me because I remember one time we'd ride down the road primetime Brian Lee was in the back. I was driving, Tom Ridge was riding shotgun, and he said, Steve, he goes, what's so stunning about stunning Steve and I. I didn't have an answer for him and he said, prime-time, because what's so primetime about Brian Lee. He didn't have an answer, but his stone cold, I had that answer ender the comfort to perform within that character. I was way better than that ring. When I was stone cold, then try and be something else because my mind my my mindset, my belief system was so that's all that it was a total shoot for me. Hello, did it take you come up with that same type of presentation or my answer. I'm gonna tell you man. Those karate movies that I that I watched, but when I was a kid, man, I always had that that when mindset because of the boss, you know, in all of those variety movies, you know that I watched the boss was, you know he was bad ass. You know, every time someone tested the boss, he showed how real e had to be with those guys. You know, all those, you know, you know, shaft, movies, I watch. You know what I mean? Rich Richard round. She was bad. Ass man. You know what I mean? Even take no shit off nobody. And and I would have to be like, like, SAF, you know what I mean? That's what can you dig it sucker came from, you know, you know me watching those movies and and just for me, I always do my role when I remember big invader guy wristed. So you know, my first pay per view in WCW. You know, with my first pay per view, I'm in the main event and big van Vader. He asks me, hey, man, you think you really ready for this. You know he was. He was shooting. He was really shooting because I was green and I go, oh yeah. Oh, yeah, I'm ready for that span. I've been. I've been..

"You know, I like you say, I love what the guy the door right now. These guys are unbelievable athletes, but the nowadays is, you know, you know, this is awesome. This is awesome. You know. And I, I love that Chan, you know what I mean? That's the that I want the whole arena. You know, saying, you know, by the end of the night, but but I, I want them to be saying it at the end of the night, not in my match, you know, because I need them. You know, like when I was wrestling stolen coast to Boston, I'm my heel. I need those fans whole tonight. He'd get me going that this is awesome for me just to Gordon jump on something and break something I need an investment. I need an emotional connection, and that's the difference between what we did and what the young guys do now at some of them do it as of late, I can honestly say, you know, Seth Rhonda's, man. I mean, this guy has been doing is, is this. Storytelling, man. I mean, it's like riding a great romance novel. That's how good at Rollins has gotten after the last, you know, six months to a year and I and I hope all of those guys, you know can fall into that same move because he's he's thinking about his body now because he's getting a little bit older. And I think that's one of the one of the things these guys are young and they don't realize until they get a little bit old. But as far as showmanship goes in because you can be a great worker because we've all known great workers who never got to that to that highest level that they should have gotten it. And I'm bring a classic point right now, Brad Armstrong, Brad Armstrong was one of the best workers have now the best worker and locker room, and it was universally respected. He could work American style, Japanese style, Lucia style. It didn't matter bracket work his ass off and as good as he was. He never got to that next level and if he could turn it on, like when that red red light on that camera zone like he couldn't in the locker room. Man, he'd have been the biggest Arna territory, but my point in in telling you that story was you're great athlete, and I guess you weren't your born with charisma, but also your showmanship. And if I'm not mistaken, believe you told me a story one time about you being a huge Bruce Lee fan and and black. Bruce Lee was instrumental because some of the stuff that you do the after affect was exactly what like Bruce Lee, if you just think he goes over and and chops a bunch of stuff up and he just going through the motions and it's cool. You can respect the ability, but dude, when he stopped a month, alkhanov city doing it faced and he's making all those. Those sounds tell me and buddy about how big of a. Bruce Lee was on, you tell people all the time and you never go to Awasa karate movie without here. Somebody Yale as always gonna be some of that. If that's in the movie is not a crate Garate move out or give the technologies, you know, Ryan, I, I was just watching you buy of the debt and the buy daily venoms just last night. And the thing is I watched these movies. A hundred times maybe a thousand a piece, but but the big is, you know, that's why I got my attainment from, you know, the boss, you know, every karate boss, you know he was bad ass. You could just walk up on, you know, you thought you, could you wonder how he became the boss? It was because he could kick everybody's ass. You know? So those stories, man, you know, my scissor kick, you know, coming from the best of the best, you know, you know the movie with Eric Roberts back in the day, you know, stuff like that, man, I, I was, you know, drawn in my sidekicks I always wanted to fly like a ninja, you know, ninjas could fly. You know what I mean? That thanking, you know, tell me brother, holy, his high as you can. You know what I mean? The number go up there getting, you know what I mean? And I would do it. You know, effortless. You know, sometime in in that's what wrestling is man. This embodiment. Of going out and making the fans feel like mad, would you put that suit on?.

Yup. Yup. And I'm Roque into bat actually. That's that's. That's actually ninety. You know, everybody always wanna put me in eighty nine and make me a little old. You know, even though social media they say, I'm fifty five. You know, I'm fifty three. Let's let's get the record straight right here. So goes the Walston Booker t. fifty three years old. But looking here check this out right here. Fifty three. Could do so, but broke and they may demanding my got my break in ninety two. Then WCW what was the deal with? Scott case you try to you? Because he was actually going to train me for period of time. I was going to work at Watkins motorise when I was working on a freight dock. And then I happened upon Scott, Casey, and we started talking. I wanted to get into the business, but then I guess you went off to Houston. And so all of a sudden Scott, Casey was known. We're going to train me because I didn't know where he went. So that's when I hooked up gentleman, Chris Adams because I saw his wrestling school commercial on TV and I went down there and it all worked out for him because you know, he put me in high profile angle because he was trying to push his school at five months after five months in the business down at Tennessee worked for a little bit and JJ sent me back. And that's when I turned and started working where Chris and he'll reason I was able to win rookie of the year in ninety was because I was in high profile Englewood gentleman, Chris Adams. And my training back in the day we did. We did the basic shit. We how to do some Tomlin drills. We learn how to take bumps and we did that over and over again. And they were just about twenty five or thirty of us in a class. We had one ring and we worked out one day a week and that was after the television Tabin. So it meant you know do end it Kristen him smart me up after five months before my first match going into Dallas born a toy to work with the world, famous frogmen Mandla blank and right in right before mother Filkin television tape. And that's when I find out the businesses at work. Now I knew something was up, but he wouldn't go smart me for nothing dude. Right before I went out there, we laid out a little bullshit match and referee. Tony Falk, who's good as go is trying to call me spots out there and we stunk out the joint as we always do when we was green. But Mike Wilson, but you don't, you know that. Oh yeah, but but what what did you training consist of? Got Casey. And I haven't post keep because it was more of a showman. He was a strong man. I could tell you. As for, let me let me tell you what happened to Scott. I, when he left him with the Texas plus get open restless school man, and it was like one of the most high profile wrestling schools you would ever, you know, wanna walk into at that time. I mean, it was plush, it was in the, you know, the south west side of town, you know, I mean, we had, you know, one wrestling ring on one side. On the other side, we have full wrestling mats. You know, we had televisions and video cameras, you know, watching us and stuff like that. I that. Slipped on the banana, peel, man and got some sponsors man, and they were all behind this thing and he has Scotman pay Scott, some good money to come up in him.
