• “If it wasn’t for him none of this would be possible” – Booker T Gives Credit To 25-Year Veteran For His New WWE Role
Last week, Old School WCW Legend Booker T was revealed as the new color commentator for WWE’s developmental brand NXT, which airs every Tuesday on the USA Network.
On the latest episode of his ‘Hall of Fame’ podcast, Booker ended up thanking everyone that helped him to get this role, but singled out one person by name, famous WWF/WWE commentator Michael Cole.
Here’s what the 2-time WWE Hall of Famer said:
“You got to always stay ready just so you don’t have to get ready. If it wasn’t for him none of this would be possible, and that’s Michael Cole, man.
Michael Cole has been my guy for quite some time, man. He’s been in my corner. So I just want to thank Michael Cole for making this all happen. I will be an advisor in certain aspects of guys. I’m all about trying to show these young guys what it takes to work at the top of the card.”
Michael Cole used to be a well respected journalist and reporter before joining Vince McMahon’s World Wrestling Federation in 1997. He has provided play-by-play commentary ever since, for the past 25 years.
