Booker T Newfound Appreciation for NXT Star Wes Lee

Wes Lee, a pivotal figure in the WWE NXT brand, recently garnered high praises from seasoned NXT commentator and two-time WWE Hall of Famer, Booker T, on his 'Hall of Fame' radio show. Interestingly, Booker T confessed that he didn't recognize Lee's potential in the initial stages.

Booker T's candid confession took many by surprise. "To be honest, Wes Lee wasn't my first choice when I arrived at 'NXT,'" he disclosed. "I saw him as an off-the-radar wrestler, with seemingly one-dimensional skills limited to acrobatics and flips.

But as I watched him wrestle, I realized he brought something more. Wes Lee bears the marks of a seasoned fighter, not just a showman."

Wes Lee's Phenomenal NXT Journey

The journey of Wes Lee in WWE NXT has been nothing short of phenomenal.

His impressive stint as the North American Champion particularly caught the attention of Booker T, who complimented Lee's top-notch performances. Nonetheless, after losing the title to Dominik Mysterio of The Judgment Day, speculations have been rife about Lee's next move in the wrestling world.

Addressing these speculations, Booker T came forward with a robust endorsement. "Let me set the record straight. Wes Lee hasn't outgrown the North American Championship, not by a long shot," Booker T emphasized. "This young talent has a lot of room to grow.

In my opinion, he could potentially emerge as the most impactful North American Champion in NXT's history." To boost Lee's trajectory, Booker T suggested another title win, arguing that reclaiming the championship would provide Lee with the leverage he needs before transitioning to the main roster.

"One more title under his belt, and he will solidify his position before he makes the leap to the main roster," Booker T concluded, painting a promising future for Wes Lee in the WWE universe.
