Submitted by Aaron Rift on 11/17/2017 at 11:05 AM

During his recent Heated Conversations podcast, Booker T commented on Jinder Mahal's run as WWE Champion and the Brock Lesnar vs. AJ Styles match at Survivor Series:

ďAs far as AJ Styles [vs.] Brock Lesnar; I donít like that matchup. I donít like that matchup. You know, Brock Lesnar is a beast. We know AJ Styles, they donít call him the Phenomenal One for nothingÖ the guy is actually that good. But to step up to Brock Lesnarís level, itís almost like a middleweight going up against a heavyweight. A heavyweight that can move like a middleweight. So, thatís why I donít like the balance of that one right there.Ē

ďI think Jinder Mahal has had a great run. I think Jinder Mahal has brought legitimacy to the championship. I think with Jinder Mahal as champion, people look at the WWE Championship now as, you know, we gotta get the title off this guy. Itís almost like that Iron Sheik when he had it back in the day, and Hogan had to get it off of him. Drop the big leg drop, bring America the title back home. I like this dynamic. Itís almost like when Sgt. Slaughter had his heel run. People hated him. I love it. This is professional wrestling, what heís doingÖ Jinder Mahal has done a great job, and I think heís been a great champion.Ē
