• Booker T Says NXT Star Is “The Next Big Thing”
On a recent episode of his weekly Hall of Fame podcast, two-time WWE Hall Of Famer Booker T talked about which WWE Superstars could be future opponents for Roman Reigns, who is considered the ‘face of the company’.
The 5-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion named current NXT Champion Karrion Kross as someone he sees as ‘The Next Big Thing’.
Here’s what Booker T said:
“I need to see a little bit more of what Karrion Kross can do from a match perspective, working with guys from a scientific perspective, psychology-wise.
I haven’t delved deep enough inside as far as Karrion Kross can go out there and do.
The thing I know about Karrion Kross is, when he walks out of the curtain, just his appearance says this guy here could be the ‘next big thing’.
I know he’s coming off an injury and that kind of stuff right there, in WWE, could definitely hold you back.
Guys that get an injury here and there, get put in a position running with a belt or something and boom, get injured.”
