Booker T discusses winning the WWE King of the Ring tournament and becoming King Booker:
I was like, I’m going to act like a king if I become King Booker. I thought about it and I studied the Pope, the King of Scotland just as far as people to watch. I just took on a different persona that people could remember forever more. With everybody that won the King of the Ring, they’re not going to think about them first, they’re going to think about King Booker. Then, they’re going to think about who (else) won the King of the Ring.
