WWE Hall of Famer Booker T says talent should focus more on psychology to prevent injuries and also praised his former student Ember Moon’s NXT debut.
Booker T was part of the Legends of Wrestling on Saturday, Aug. 27 at Marlins Park. He spoke to Rodolfo Roman of The Roman Show.
With recent injuries in WWE, Booker T voiced his opinion on the matter.
“The bar is higher,” he said. “The guys want to one up each other...These guys raise the bar so much. It’s inevitable. It’s not a matter of if, but it’s a matter of when it’s going to happen. I think they should work smarter, think about the psychology a little more drawing the fans from a Shakespearean, Phantom of the Opera perspective. They can do it a whole a lot safer.”

He also talked about Moon’s debut at NXT TakeOver. Moon trained at Booker T’s Reality of Wrestling School in Houston.
“She’s everything I expected,” he said. “When she first came to me she was already talented she had the tools. She had to be polished. She had the hunger. She was willing to travel the miles. She was way ahead before she got her. Now she was able to show the world.”
Booker T also talked about his recent surgery to his elbow caused by performing the Spin-O-roonie.
“Injury caused by doing the Spin-O-roonie for 20 years,” he said. “I didn’t realize how much pressure this elbow was taking until that night when I did the move on the hardwood floor.”
He also discussed who can possibly have a major impact to the main roster from NXT, talents in his Reality of Wrestling promotion and more.
