Booker T has revealed what he believes TNA needs to do to continue their recent success.
The WWE Hall Of Famer spent three years with TNA following his departure from WWE in 2007, going on to become the inaugural TNA Legends Champion as well as lifting the TNA Tag Team Championship with Scott Steiner.
TNA returned to it’s original brand name at the Hard To Kill event on 13th January with fans optimistic for their future following the recent signings of former WWE talents Nic Nemeth and Ash By Elegance, previously known as Dolph Ziggler and Dana Brooke respectively.
On a recent edition of ‘Hall of Fame with Booker T & Brad Gilmore‘, the five time WCW Champion was asked if TNA could overtake AEW as the number 2 promotion. The Houston native believes the company should focus solely on their own identity at present:
“I don’t know, I think #3 is pretty good if you do it right.
I don’t think they should think past what they’re doing, and try to think about trying to be #2 or trying to be #1. I think they just need to be T-N-A. I think people would love it, I say it because when I was there back in 2009-10, those crowds were crazy. It was a buzz around TNA.
If they could just get back to that, I think they’ll be okay.”
Booker T Fires Back At Recent NXT Claims
Booker T has become known for his outspoken views on the current product and he hit headlines recently when racing to the defence of NXT, a brand that he serves as a commentator for.
Suggestions had been made that NXT training methods were causing harm to Superstars, something that was strongly denied by the former WCW Tag Team Champion.
