Exclusive: Why Booker T Has a Large Commentary Presence

Nick Paglino

Booker TWWE Chairman Vince McMahon is said to be "very high on Booker T's Smackdown commentary."

According to a key WWE insider, Vince has told people Booker brings a "street perspective" to the broadcast, and feels that Booker balances out Michael Cole for the audience even better than Jerry "The King" Lawler does on Monday Night Raw.

"Vince usually hates people he can't relate to," our source candidly told us, "but he really likes Booker's commentary because he feels no other broadcast on television right now offers Booker's viewpoint. He keeps saying how unique and different Booker is."
