Below are a couple of top WWE news stories of the day, involving Booker T and WrestleMania 40.

• Trick Williams is the hottest babyface in NXT right now.

At NXT Vengeance Day, Trick failed to defeat Ilja Dragunov for the NXT Championship in the main event. After the match, his tag team partner Carmelo Hayes turned heel on him.

On his Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T praised Trick and said Trick could main event WrestleMania 41 in 2025!

Here’s what the WCW Legend said:

“Do I think he’s a guy that’s gonna do a hell of a lot in this business? Oh, yes, I think he’s gonna do a hell of a lot. But Trick Williams, that kid? After what I saw at Vengeance Day, he showed up, showed out.

How many matches has Trick had on live television? How many has Carmelo had? (his co-host noted that Carmelo has had many more) Exactly my point.

I’m gonna tell you, I can spot talent. I can see when somebody’s getting ready to get the rocket put on them and get sent straight to the moon.

Look here, Trick, this kid could be main eventing WrestleMania next year. Am I gonna say that about ‘Melo? Hell no. I like this kid, he’s a good kid. But so is my next-door neighbor.”

• WWE has released the WrestleMania 40 teaser trailer featuring WWE Champion Roman Reigns, The Rock, 2024 Men’s Royal Rumble winner Cody Rhodes & World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins.
