The former World Champion talked about how strong the women’s locker room was a couple of years ago. However, a lot of names were ruled out. Becky Lynch, Sarah Logan and even the Bella Twins were absent from the WWE because of pregnancy.

“The ladies’ locker room have dwindled a little bit. It’s not as strong as what it was a couple of years ago.”

 Booker T’s words stand true. Since the rise of Becky Lynch to the main event and Ronda Rousey’s year of domination, the women’s locker room has been severely lacking.

“It was definitely a sight to see Charlotte come back in that fashion; you know. Grand fashion, pay-per-view, only looking like she can but go out there and do work, cash in as well, become champion and that’s what she does. I thought it was great, but I’m still you know, there again, a little worried about the women’s division right now.”

Booker T also predicted that Charlotte and Asuka’s friendship will not last very long. Fans know that a heel turn is inevitable, but it will be interesting to see from which side the heel turn eventually occurs.

Booker T also declared that Bayley was his standout performer from the women’s division, calling her match with Bianca Belair a PPV worthy match.
