Booker T Hails Andrade For Joining AEW
“I've said it many, many times, this guy is extraordinary”
Andrade El Idolo signing with AEW has sent shockwaves through the wrestling industry, with the former NXT Champion’s signing seen as a major get for AEW.
WWE Hall of Famer Booker T agrees, praising Andrade on his Hall of Fame podcast:
“It definitely is a big pick-up for AEW going forward, having a guy like him on their roster,” said Booker “I've said it many, many times, this guy is extraordinary as far as work [in the ring], the feud, the series of matches that he had with Rey Mysterio. I tell you, he made Rey Mysterio look 20 years younger, and I'm not trying to age Rey Mysterio or anything like that. It showed me how good of a worker this guy really, truly is, from a perspective that he gets it. He knows exactly what it means to go out there and get someone over and get himself over.”
From a purely in-ring perspective, Andrade has a who’s who of talented opponents at his disposal in AEW, and it’s likely only a matter of time before Booker T is fawning over his performances once more.
