XT Ratings Surge Predicted

Talking about the recent upswing in WWE NXT ratings, Booker T projected, “I’m estimating around 820,000 viewers. Although that might seem a tad conservative, achieving this figure would signify a commendable feat.

The upcoming bout between Tiffany Stratton and Becky Lynch is undoubtedly stirring excitement among fans. With its immense potential to be a ratings puller, I can't wait to be ringside, having the best view of this much-anticipated match.

If they pull off what I'm envisioning, it's going to be a spectacular showcase”. However, it wasn't just the current state of wrestling that was the topic of discussion. Booker T took a nostalgic detour down memory lane, reflecting on one of the most significant matches in his illustrious career.

“Facing Ric Flair during a Saturday Night Main Event at the iconic Center Stage on Peachtree Boulevard in Atlanta, Georgia, is an experience I'll never forget. It's vividly etched in my mind,” he recalled. “The feeling was indescribable when I was handpicked to wrestle Flair.

Realizing that the matchup wasn’t just about me, but more about Flair wanting to evaluate my skills firsthand, made it all the more special”. The wrestling icon went on to emphasize the invaluable experiences from his high-profile matches.

“Memorable bouts with the likes of Randy Savage, Curt Henning, and Ricky 'The Dragon' Steamboat were not just about the fight. They were learning experiences. Especially with Steamboat; I didn’t even need to utter a word.

All I did was absorb, learning during that intense 22-minute match more than any wrestling school could ever offer”. This deep dive into Booker T's thoughts and memories provides a compelling look into the mind of one of wrestling’s greats and builds excitement for the future of WWE NXT.
