Sharmell on WWE Instant Access
Immediately after her man lost the United States Championship to Chris Benoit, Booker T's wife Sharmell sat down with WWE.com. Here is what she had to say:
WWE.com: How do you feel about Theodore Long forcing Booker to compete tonight?
Sharmell: I think it's totally unfair. It's a conspiracy. Teddy Long should not have had Booker T wrestling in his condition. We showed Teddy the doctor's note. Booker was NOT cleared to wrestle, and I am calling for Teddy Long's resignation.
WWE.com: After all the controversy surrounding the use of substitutes, do you believe that brings Booker's championship reign into question?
Sharmell: Absolutely not. No matter who Booker chose to substitute for him, there's no way they could have done a better job than Booker. Because after all, Booker is the best wrestler out there. So, any substitute is actually sub-par.
WWE.com: What's next for you and Booker T now that he's no longer the United States Champion?
Sharmell: I always say that the sky is the limit. Booker T will continue to rehab, and when his injury is no longer a threat to him, I'm sure he will go on to greater heights. He will reclaim his gold.
