Booker T Speaks On If The New Day Should Break Up, Renee Young Replacing Jonathan Coachman


WWE Hall Of Famer Booker T recently appeared as a guest on the WrestlingINC podcast to talk about various topics. Here are the highlights:

Renee Young replacing Jonathan Coachman on the Raw announce team:

“I wouldn’t say she took Coach’s spot and Coach didn’t take my spot. It doesn’t work like that. It was an opportunity, first and foremost, for Renee, who has done a great job. Renee has put in a lot of time. People don’t think about that, first and foremost. They just think about, ‘well, it’s a new woman getting a shot at the commentary table.’ But Renee has put in countless hours, time in, time out, day-to-day, day in and day out, studying for that position. Do you know what I mean? For her to actually get that position is awesome! I think a lot of times, the internet and social media, take Renee, they want to dog on her saying things about her and I’m like, ‘if you only knew what that job entailed and how hard it really is.’ Props to her. Kudos to her. And as far as she can take it, I hope she’ll run with it for as long as Michael Cole has run with it. With what, 100 years? So it’s awesome for her to actually finally get that recognition that she well-deserved.”

Why The New Day should not break up right now:

“Do you know what, man, right now, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. That’s the way I look at it. This thing has done great things for all of those guys. Xavier, Kofi was kind of stuck in a rut there. It was still Kofi doing Kofi and Kofi having to go out there and be the ultimate [professional] wrestler with Kofi going out there and having to run, run, run. And be that ultimate babyface. Big E trying to find leverage, but together, it seemed like these guys have gelled quite well together, so for me, I say, ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.’ If we could run with it for another six months to a year, let’s run with it for another six months or a year because after that, you may have to do a heel turn. And then, where do we go after that? So I think longevity more than ‘what can we get out of this today?’ I say, ‘what can we get out of this tomorrow?'”
