Booker T had a ringside seat for the bout as the NXT color commentator, and on his Hall of Fame podcast, he weighed in on the bout.

"As far as the match goes, on a scale of one to ten, I give it a six. I'm not going to go too higher than a six just because I know what I'm looking for. If you're a gymnast, and you're doing the vault, what am I looking for? Most important thing in the vault? I'm looking to see if these guys stick the dismount. I'm still looking, still waiting. Did they go out there and perform? Yes, they did. I just thought they were walking their way through it as opposed to feeling their way through it," said Booker.

Booker continued, "I thought it could have been a lot better. Do I think the right guy won? Yeah. What they did on Tuesday with Bron Breakker turning heel, I like that. I like Bron Breakker better as a heel. He should have started out as a heel, but with him having the pedigree, background, and name, you jumpstart him as a babyface, I get that too. I'm from the school that, you put him out there as a heel first and it teaches him everything he needs to know about being a babyface because he's working babyfaces."

Booker said that he likes Carmelo not as because he's a babyface or heel because he is HIM.
