Booker T thinks Tommaso Ciampa is right where he belongs on the WWE’s third brand as he’d get lost in the shuffle on RAW or SmackDown.
The two-time WWE Hall Of Famer was discussing the current NXT Champion on an episode of his Hall Of Fame podcast. According to Booker T, he believes Tommaso Ciampa is in the perfect place for himself and WWE as he can be a mentor for the younger talent now being showcased on NXT 2.0:
“Tommaso Ciampa, I think if he came to the main roster, he’d get lost in the shuffle. In NXT, he’s going to be playing at a high level, he’s going to play a big role there, he’s great for those younger guys coming up that he can actually help, hopefully, mentor and guide to what is going to take for you guys to go to the next level.”
“If that’s talking bad about somebody, I wished somebody talked about me like that sometimes. A guy like Tommaso Ciampa, he’s perfect for NXT – and people can take that and look at it however they want. There, again, if someone was calling me ‘perfect’, I’d take it any day of the week.”
Ciampa reclaimed ‘Goldie’ on the inaugural edition of the new look NXT 2.0 on the 14th of September when he defeated Von Wagner, Pete Dunne, and LA Knight in a Fatal Four Way match. On the most recent edition of NXT 2.0, Ciampa teamed with recent debutant Bron Breakker in a tag team match where they defeated Dunne and his compatriot Ridge Holland.
Tommaso Ciampa recently discussed his previous comments he made where he said he’d rather retire than join the main roster of WWE.
