Booker T Likens WWE Star to Early-Career Miz

The rising star of the wrestling world, Grayson Waller, has recently been featured in numerous high-profile roles, including bouts with the likes of wrestling legends Edge and John Cena. Waller's stellar performances have not gone unnoticed, especially by the former "WWE NXT" superstar and current "Hall of Fame" podcast host, Booker T, who likens Waller's aura to that of a young Miz.

During the latest episode of his podcast, Booker T praised Waller for his charisma, saying, "He's definitely got that Miz appeal. He's an excellent speaker, and his wrestling skills are more than up to par, at least as far as I'm concerned.

But, the real stand out quality for me is his undeniable star appeal. There's something about him that just draws you in – you can't help but have a love-hate relationship with the guy."

Booker T Endorses Waller's Abilities

Booker T's personal insight into Waller's abilities comes from their time together on the black and gold brand.

This first-hand experience gives Booker's assessment a weight that extends beyond mere speculation. The five-time WCW Champion expressed no surprise at the opportunities Waller is being handed, endorsing Waller's ability to maximize each one while handling the inevitable pressures of the spotlight.

"I've always believed he's mature enough for the main roster," Booker reflected. "In fact, he seems to fit right into it seamlessly. I'm not surprised to see them positioning him in the spotlight as they are. The way he performed with Edge, the charisma he exudes, and the way he carries himself - he's doing a fantastic job.

So far, I haven't seen anything about Grayson Waller's performance that I could criticize." In Booker T's view, Waller's success is not only a testament to his talent and charisma but also indicative of the faith that other established stars have in him.

The fact that figures like Edge and Cena have been willing to share the ring with him speaks volumes about his potential and the respect he's already earned from the industry's top talent. The rising trajectory of Waller's career is indeed a testament to his skills and reflects the high regard in which he is held by the stalwarts of WWE.
