Booker T Says These Two WWE Royal Rumble Standouts Have A 'Bright Future'

WWE legend Booker T has praised the performances of Jade Cargill and Bron Breakker at the 2024 Royal Rumble, declaring that both of them already look like major superstars.

While speaking on his "Hall of Fame" podcast, Booker T said that both Cargill and Breakker didn't look out of place in the women's and men's Royal Rumble, respectively, and that they're going to be major names in the promotion going forward.

"Bron Breakker, Jade Cargill, I tell you what, I think more than anything, they both look like major superstars already. Jade Cargill, she's got like that star appeal, but Bron Breakker, coming out of 'NXT,' right off the bat, knocking it right out of the park. He stepped in there with the big guys and fit in pretty much perfectly," said Booker T. "I see a bright, bright for both of those guys. Jade Cargill [is] definitely gonna shake up the women's division, and she might even take over the women's division if she plays her cards right."

Breakker and Cargill made their first Royal Rumble appearances last weekend, with both impressing with their tenacity, speed, and power inside the ring. Breakker entered the men's Royal Rumble match at #20, eliminating four stars — Jimmy Uso, Finn Balor, Ivar, and Omos. Cargill, meanwhile, made her WWE debut in the women's Royal Rumble match, entering at #28 and eliminating three stars — Naomi, Nia Jax, and Becky Lynch.

Booker T further analyzes Cargill and Breakker's performances

Booker T felt that Breakker should maybe stay longer on "NXT," but understands why the youngster wants to move to the main roster.

"I said Bron Breakker may need another six months to a year, not that it was because I didn't think he was ready or anything like that, I thought because 'NXT' needed him more than anything," said Booker T. "But Bron Breakker made a statement on Twitter. He said the main roster is now his new home. I get it, the young guys want to move up and get a piece of that action — be able to travel, go around the world. You don't get a chance to do that down in 'NXT.' Leaving 'NXT' is not going to get any easier. It's going to get harder. So I respect someone like Bron Breakker who's willing to partake that journey and go on and live it."

The Hall of Famer also further analyzed Cargill's performance. He stated that Cargill's spinebuster at the women's Royal Rumble looked great, apart from her impressive feat of throwing Nia Jax over the top rope.

"It looked like she did everything that she was very, very comfortable doing. She made everything look right. That's what I loved about Jade Cargill, she didn't look out of place at all. She looked totally in the spotlight, as far as 'all eyes on me.' It was one of those nights. She did a hell of a job," said the two-time Hall of Famer.
