Booker T Comments That He Sees 'Shawn Michaels' Star Power In Adam Cole...
Updated: Aug 13
On a recent episode of The Hall of Fame with Booker T & Brad Gilmore, Booker had some high praise for current WWE - NXT Superstar Adam Cole, commenting that he sees 'Shawn Michaels' Star Power in Cole.
“As young as Adam Cole is and as short of time as he’s been in WWE, man, this guy, he’s really a student of the game and he can teach those guys down in there in that system so much. I heard somebody else say it and I agree with them, I say, ‘If Adam Cole was 6’3″ tall he’d be the Universal Champion right now.’ That’s how good this kid is. He really is that good. Not to blow Shawn Michaels’ horn or anything like that, but this kid he’s sitting at that next level, Shawn Michaels type guy that can go out there and be that Mr. WrestleMania. Of course I know it’s a different era now than it was back then, but I really look at Adam Cole and I say ‘Man, this guy is really very talented,’ and me, I’m gonna tell you right now, I don’t say that about a whole lot of guys.”
Booker went on to say that if he was running the book in WWE - NXT, he'd have Cole stay in NXT a little bit longer.
“Me personally, if I had the book and I had the pen, Adam Cole would stay in NXT a little while longer. Not saying that he’s not ready to go to the main roster or anything like that, not saying that he’s going to get lost in the shuffle or anything like that, but I just think just a little bit more time in NXT will only serve him a little bit better. I don’t think it’s going to hurt him at all staying in NXT a little bit longer."
