In a sensational revelation on the "The Hall of Fame" podcast, "WWE NXT" commentator Booker T articulated his aspiration to see Jey Uso upend his cousin, Roman Reigns, in the upcoming WWE SummerSlam. Reigns is set to stake his Undisputed WWE Universal Championship and his standing as Tribal Chief in this family feud, igniting widespread anticipation for an Uso triumph.
Booker T mused on the narrative richness of Uso challenging for the status of 'Head of the Table' "The timing couldn't be better, and the opportunity poised to solidify Jey as potentially the 'next big thing' is tantalizing," Booker noted.
Picturing Uso's potential victory, he expressed effusive pride, stating, "If Jey achieves this, it will be a testament to his perseverance. His commitment to seizing the moment and showcasing his talent is admirable."
Booker T Praises Usos' Achievements
Continuing his commentary, Booker highlighted his admiration for the Uso brothers' achievements in WWE.
"I take immense pride in watching the Usos perform and actualize their potential. Their accomplishments within WWE are a testament to their skill and determination," Booker added. In last week's "WWE SmackDown", an audacious Jey Uso confronted Reigns, Solo Sikoa, and Paul Heyman.
Uso's electrifying superkick on Sikoa left audiences yearning for more ahead of their SummerSlam showdown. Regarding the mounting pressure on Uso, Booker shared his belief in Uso's capability to navigate his newfound status on the roster.
"The storyline is but a fragment of the challenge. The true test lies in Uso's ability to bear this weight," Booker explained. "If he succeeds, he'll ascend to a place where fans view him differently, and that is truly special." Booker further elucidated on the complexities of gaining modern fans' love and respect.
While the specific elements behind Uso's successful formula remain elusive, Booker is certain that Uso has discovered a winning combination. As we draw closer to the grand spectacle at Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan, on August 5, fans anticipate a thrilling lineup.
Alongside the electrifying Reigns vs. Uso match, the event boasts Seth Rollins defending the World Heavyweight Championship against Finn Balor, a third showdown between Brock Lesnar and Cody Rhodes, and a Triple Threat contest for the WWE Women's Championship between Asuka, Charlotte Flair, and Bianca Belair, among other exhilarating encounters.
