Booker T said he uses various accents during his TNA promos because Hollywood could be watching. "It’s something that I play with," Booker told Hit the Ropes. "Hollywood is always looking, I don’t just think about the wrestling audience. There are a lot of roles that need to be filled. So they’re looking for people that can who can do the scenes as well. Putting myself in a position to do a whole lot more. I’m always thinking about my next career."

Booker also revealed which wrestler he'd like to have another best-of-seven feud with. "Uhh... probably, if I was a good guy, Randy Orton. A guy who can get into the ring and perform at a level that can bring me up to another level. It’s about competing with the best. When I watch the shows, the young wrestlers, he’s one of the guys that stands out. Definitely a technician, just like his dad." To read the full interview, visit

Powell's POV: Let me get this straight, Booker is basically using his TNA promo time to audition for Hollywood? Better yet, of all the guys he could elevate in a best-of-seven, he listed a WWE performer? I dig Booker's act, but I wouldn't be happy if I were writing the paychecks for TNA.
