The Rock reflects on his battle with Booker T.
At SummerSlam 2001, Booker T went one-on-one with The Great One, taking on The Rock for the WCW Championship in the main event of the show. The Rock stood tall to close SummerSlam but gained a new respect for his opponent. Taking to Instagram, The Rock reflected on his 2001 bout with the five-time champion.
Found this gem -- of one my favorite @wwe matches. Me vs @bookertfivex for the WCW Heavyweight World Title. Booker is such an incredibly gifted beast of an athlete so our wrestling styles complimented each other very well. There was no one better when it came to pure in ring athleticism and there’s a reason why this man is in the Hall of Fame. He’s a tough bastard too and after this 35min match I felt like I got hit by a fucking truck ------ Thank you brother Book for “the house” and for “doing the honors” - this one was special. #RockVsBookerT #WCWHeavyweightTitle #ElectrifyingCrowd
