Booker T was unimpressed by the NXT Championship match between Bron Breakker and Carmelo Hayes during NXT Stand & Deliver.
This past weekend, fans got to witness the dream match that they have been waiting for as Bron Breakker defended his NXT Championship against Carmelo Hayes.
Both men put on a good show and it was Carmelo Hayes who emerged victorious in the end to become the new NXT Champion. While the match was appreciated by most people, Booker T was unimpressed by the bout.
During a recent episode of the Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T explained that he would give the NXT Championship bout a six out of ten rating.
“As far as the match goes, on a scale of one to ten, I give it a six. I’m not going to go too higher than a six just because I know what I’m looking for. If you’re a gymnast, and you’re doing the vault, what am I looking for? Most important thing in the vault?”
“I’m looking to see if these guys stick the dismount. I’m still looking, still waiting. Did they go out there and perform? Yes, they did. I just thought they were walking their way through it as opposed to feeling their way through it,” said Booker. [H/T Fightful]

Booker T prefers Bron Breakker as a heel
During the same podcast episode, Booker T went on to say that he likes Bron Breakker better as a heel and felt he should’ve started out that way.
“I thought it could have been a lot better. Do I think the right guy won? Yeah. What they did on Tuesday with Bron Breakker turning heel, I like that. I like Bron Breakker better as a heel. He should have started out as a heel, but with him having the pedigree, background, and name, you jumpstart him as a babyface, I get that too.”
“I’m from the school that, you put him out there as a heel first and it teaches him everything he needs to know about being a babyface because he’s working babyfaces.” [H/T Fightful]
