WWE Hall of Famer Booker T discussed the WCW’s ‘triple cage match’ and his thoughts on its potential revival in a recent episode of his Hall of Fame podcast. The unique match structure was first featured in the WCW/David Arquette film, Ready To Rumble, and was later featured twice by WCW in 2000.

Booker T commented on the triple cage match, saying, “Yeah, I think if anybody can make it work, it would be WWE. You know, they got the budget and the manpower to actually be able to secure something like that. That cage is crazy. And I remember the concept from Ready to Rumble, right? It was crazy. It looked awesome. It looked from a movie perspective, it actually looked awesome. I don’t know if it will work today though. Something I would be willing to explore, I tell you that. Well, like I said, I think if anybody, if anybody could do it, WWE could definitely pull something off like that. I definitely love to see it.”

When asked about his favorite gimmick matches, Booker T stated, “Like of all time. I guess the San Francisco 49ers match. No man. But my favorite game is a match. It goes back to a day you probably wouldn’t even remember but it was called the Coal Miner’s Glove match started right here. They did that match here in Houston, TX. The coal miner’s glove match was always intriguing for me to see the guy get that glove on and go to work with it when the cage matches and you know, the ladder matches, you know, stuff like that. But for me, it’s just that that match right there had a certain vibe about it.”
