WWE Hall Of Famer appeared on Ryan Satin’s podcast “Out Of Character” to talk about his new role in NXT, his days in WCW and how he balances work and personal life.
Booker T talks about his work on NXT and what he does to keep fans entertained:
“I think having fun is really important,” Booker said. “Getting that weekly dose, sitting at that table watching those young guys go out there and perform at a very high level, and then add my form of commentary is pretty cool because I’m not a traditional commentator or anything like that. I’m not claiming that you’re like Michael Cole I can’t, but I can entertain you I can make you say, ‘Man, this is fun’, and I can be very educational, and I can really make the game feel like there’s something really, really going on at the same time. I think that’s what wrestling is. Wrestling isn’t like boxing. It’s not like MMA. Those sports are brutal. Wrestling is a breath of fresh air.”
Booker T said he only saw wrestling as his job:

We believe in you pulling the load because when you’re the champion, when you’ve got the title, you do the outside work as well as the inside work. You “You’re the champ in the ring, outside the ring, all the time. It’s a great job. So for me, that responsibility, I think I was excited more than anything.”
