During the recently released edition of his own Hall of Fame podcast WWE Hall of Famer Booker T discussed the main roster return of former WWE Universal Champion Finn Balor. Check out Booker’s comments below.
On Balor needing to work to get back to get back to the top:
“I’m going to tell you this, Finn Balor being back on the main roster, he’s gonna have to work, man. It’s almost like you’ve got your 1-10 contenders. Finn Balor right now I would say is No. 10. He’s going to have to work his way back up to that No. 1 spot through his performance — through his performance and that alone. I’m going to tell you right now, if Finn Balor is lucky enough to have a dance partner like Sami Zayn, that’s going to be definitely one for him to be able to go out there and create some magic in a match like that and let the world see exactly what Finn Balor is all about.”
On making the fans feel you in the ring:
“I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times, if you wan’t making the fans feel you in the ring — Ricochet; top independent wrestler before WWE signed him. Now Ricochet, he’s ranked like No. 14 just because, just because you can fly doesn’t mean you can go out there and make those people feel what they want to feel. And then if you can fly, man, that’s just adding icing on the cake. Let me see that Shakespearian performance, and give me some high-flying at the same time. You got a guy like Finn Balor who can go out there and be not just a top Superstar on the roster, *the* top Superstar on the roster. And I say that because I don’t look at his size or anything like that when you perform at a certain way.”
