Two-time WWE Hall of Famer Booker T recently took to an episode of his “Hall Of Fame” podcast, where he talked about a number of topics including how he has always been a fan of Drew McIntyre and how he is looking forward to seeing him in a heel role.

Booker T said, “I do. I’ve always been a fan of Drew’s. His initial run with WWE, and then he was let go, and I was on a couple of independent shows with him over in the UK. Just a classy guy and a great performer. But perhaps, like Ronda Rousey previously in WWE, he may not have been cast in the best role. As a baby face, I’m anxious to see what he’s capable of as a heel. And let’s be honest, as much as I respect and like, you know, I like him. He never really, never really connected as that babyface champion. He had some things against him, his Covid era, the crowd reaction to kind of help put you up over the top and give you the credibility that a champion should have and that’s just bad timing. But I’m looking forward to seeing him in that heel role because he’s a phenomenal performer and he’s got the right look. He’s got the voice, he’s physical, he can perform in the ring. So maybe a fresh coat of paint will do him justice.”
