With Booker T doing commentary for the WWE NXT brand alongside Vic Joseph these days, the two-time WWE Hall of Famer is working with Shawn Michaels as he oversees the announce team.
During the latest edition of his “Hall of Fame” podcast, Booker T revealed how the Heartbreak Kid handles the commentary team and what he says in their headsets.
You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
On how Michaels oversees the commentary on NXT: “Shawn, he’s not like, ‘Hey guys, I need you to do this, I need you to do that.’ No, it’s not like that at all. But he has given input for me. I’m just now getting back. I’m just starting again, I’m just now getting my feet wet. So encouragement I think, is what Shawn has done for me more than anything. You know [such as], ‘Book man, you was good tonight but maybe let’s see if we can work on this next week.’ You know what I mean? Which for me is just constructive criticism.”
On the things he needs to improve on: “I know I need to know everybody’s names and I gotta make sure that — like say, for instance, I said Shotzi Blackheart. Which was a mistake, because she’s just Shotzi. So it’s little bitty things like that I need to be conscious of. And the only way I can be conscious of it is, I do my due diligence, study, and make sure to try not to make those same mistakes.”
