Booker T has garnered enormous fame throughout his career. When he feels something deserves to be acknowledged, the Harlem Heat member never holds back. Recently, Booker T took the initiative, saying that Mandy Rose’s decision to return to NXT was the right one.

Booker T thinks Mandy Rose’s decision to return to “NXT” was the right one as she approaches the one-year mark as the NXT Women’s Champion. Booker T offered his opinions on Rose’s performance at NXT Halloween Havoc, when she successfully defended her championship against Alba Fyre, during recent episode of The Hall of Fame podcast.

“Mandy Rose, man, she stepped up. She’s definitely a player, man. When I said she is the best in the business right now, that wasn’t just cliche or anything like that. She has come up. Just the looks on her face, and her mannerisms, her work ethic. Everything is literally on point. You can see her confidence level in-ring.”

When Rose was a finalist in the 2015 “Tough Enough” competition, Booker T worked as her trainer. He said it has been “wonderful” to see her develop as a performer. Rose tried her hardest to win even if she didn’t, according to Booker T, and he is happy to see her “receiving her flowers” today.


“I think taking that step back for her, and going back to NXT, it was the right thing to do for her. It definitely was. Maybe she got the call up too soon. Maybe she just didn’t totally feel it properly.”

In July 2021, Rose made comeback to NXT after spending almost four years on the main roster. She co-founded the group Toxic Attraction with Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne, and as a result, all three women took home victories at the Halloween Havoc competition in 2021.

Booker T thinks Toxic Attraction is still a “hot act” and “hard to follow” after a year. Booker has acknowledged having an opinion, though. Keep checking Ringside for more developments.
