WWE Hall Of Famer Booker T has revealed his MVP of WWE for 2023.
The five-time WCW Champion believes that Dominik Mysterio has been the highlight of WWE programming during 2023.
Mysterio has enjoyed a fine year, featuring prominently as a member of The Judgment Day whilst enjoying two reigns as NXT North American Champion, the most recent of which came to an end at the hands of Dragon Lee at NXT Deadline on 9th December.
Speaking on his podcast Hall Of Fame with Booker T & Brad Gilmore, the legendary Superstar spoke glowingly of the 26 year-old’s performances in the past 12 months:
“I truly believe that you can put five guys in WWE [in for the running of] MVP of the year, and Dom would be one of those names.
At the end of that poll, Dominik would be the MVP of 2023, bar none. I really believe that this kid changed the whole name of the game and showed what it really means to be a performer.”
Booker T Hails In-Ring Skills Of Dominik Mysterio
Whist Dominik Mysterio has proven highly entertaining for audiences in his partnership with WWE Women’s World Champion Rhea Ripley, Booker T was keen to point out that people shouldn’t discount ‘Dirty Dom’s’ in-ring qualities:
“What he does out of the ring is awesome, but then I turned to what he does inside the ring — he is so freaking uncanny. I
talk to my students [at Reality of Wrestling], and I tell them, with wrestling, there is no wrong way of doing this, as long as you do it right. He has all of those elements, to where it may not be traditional, but it’s right every freakin’ single time.
That’s what I love about watching Dominik do his work in the ring. What he’s done outside the ring, it hadn’t been a whole lot at all, but it’s definitely made you feel something.”
