Booker T Responds to NXT Champion Trick Williams’ Offer for a Title Shot

One Big Thing

Two-time WWE Hall of Famer Booker T has responded to NXT Champion Trick Williams’ offer for a title shot, appreciating the gesture but ultimately declining the opportunity.

Key Points

  • Trick Williams captured the NXT Championship from Ilja Dragunov at Spring Breakin’ in April.
  • Williams recently offered Booker T a shot at the NXT Title, despite Booker’s last singles match in WWE being in 2012.
  • Booker T, while flattered, declined the offer, stating he wants to see Williams “take over the world” and be a mentor to him instead.

Booker T’s Response

“I’m like Ronald Reagan, man. I’m not gonna exploit my opponent’s inexperience in this situation. [Trick] is getting ready to take over the world. I want to see that kid take over the world. I don’t want to be in there trying to mix it up with this kid or anything like that. I mean, he is the future of this business. I want to be able to step aside and be that dude in the passenger seat navigating this kid’s career to that next level.”

Why It Matters

Booker T’s response to Trick Williams’ offer highlights the importance of veteran wrestlers mentoring and supporting the next generation of talent. By declining the match and offering to guide Williams in his career, Booker T demonstrates the value of experience and wisdom in the wrestling industry.

Booker T’s Offer to Trick Williams

While Booker T emphasized that he is in great shape and still works out daily, he clarified that his gym routine is for maintaining his health. He expressed his willingness to get in the ring with Williams, but only as a mentor and not for an actual match.

“I really appreciate networking with [Williams] and really being able to be a mentor to him. I’m here for that kid in every way. If he needs me to get in the ring with him and just school him, I can do that. That’s off-camera. That’s all off-camera stuff, man.”
