Slapstick Saturday presents: Tell me, he did not just say that!

What happens when Booker T gets fired up during a promo on Hulk Hogan? Nothing you haven't heard, I'm sure, but watch anyway just to see his reaction.

Welcome to another edition of "Slapstick Saturday," Cagesiders, where your old pal Hollywood Holland pokes fun at every botch, blooper and bomb the world of professional wrestling has ever given us.

This time, we're using the N-word.

Actually, Booker T is using it ... on live television! Long before he was general manager of SmackDown! for World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), Mr. "Five Time" was one half of the Harlem Heat tag team under World Championship Wrestling (WCW).

And he was pretty damn entertaining to watch, even if he wasn't always politically correct.

Books got a little fired up one night when talking about (who else?) Hulk Hogan, letting his street slang bubble to the surface during an "intense" promo. He quickly realized his faux pas and recoiled in horror, but as he later revealed, Hulkapolitics didn't run wild.

"It was my most embarrassing moment. I'm from the street and that's a word in the neighborhood we use loosely, all the time, and I was just intense, fired up, in the moment. It slipped out. I thought I was gonna be totally blackballed for that and Hulk Hogan actually came up to me and told me not to feel bad about it. He said you know what? I'm a good n-word."

See for yourself:

Now can you dig that, sucka?
