Booker T wouldn’t have gone far as an NXT commentator if not for the efforts of Vic Joseph, according to the two-time WWE Hall of Famer himself.
On a recent edition of “The Kurt Angle Show” podcast, Booker T spoke about his role with the gold brand and how Joseph has helped him at the commentary table. He said,
“When you do it for two hours straight or three hours straight, it can get pretty serious, because you can’t stop on yourself, you’ve got to have everything in order. For me, it’s been a process. I’m finally really beginning to be comfortable now in NXT but I got Vic Joseph who I’m working with and he’s a huge help, man. I really think I wouldn’t be as far as I am without Vic Joseph being that quarterback out there. He’s setting me up perfectly.
“I do a lot of studying now. I write more than I have ever written in my life. I’ve got this thing called a ‘reMarkable’, it’s a little tablet, and all I’m doing is writing. I’ll write, for instance, whatever I want to say just to make sure I presented properly when I say it, make sure I accent everything i’m talking about, the exclaimation points end everything what I’m doing this, because even when you’re doing commentary, it’s a show. I like making people laugh. I might throw a ‘Shucky Ducky quack quack’ in there just to get people going, but for me, it’s been a process, but I love it. I love right now. Seriously, I really love where I’m at.”
Booker joined WWE NXT as a commentator in October 2022. He has previously commentated for both Monday Night RAW and SmackDown.
