Booker T names three people that he's really high on in WWE NXT.
In October 2022, Booker T became a full-time member of the commentary team for the NXT brand. Alongside Vic Joesph, Booker T has had the opportunity to call moments and matches involving some of the brand's biggest stars like Bron Breakker, Roxanne Perez, and Carmelo Hayes.
With the NXT Stand & Deliver premium live event quickly approaching, Booker T was asked to name three stars that he's currently high on in a new interview with the Under The Ring podcast.
“Three guys that I’m really high on, that’s JD McDonagh, Ilja Dragunov, & Axiom. Axiom could be the next great masked superstar. I know we got Dragon Lee here and people have given Dragon Lee a lot of high praise, but this kid Axiom is definitely unbelievable. JD McDonagh, not too many come better than this dude, he’s a next level talent, as well as Dragunov. These guys go out there and they really make you feel a certain way when you watch them. Pay attention to Stand & Deliver because Dragunov and JD McDonagh could steal the show.”
Ilja Dragunov, JD McDonagh Wes Lee, Dragon Lee, and a mystery opponent are all set to compete for the NXT North American Championship in a five way match at NXT Stand & Deliver. Fans can see the full card for the event by clicking here.
