Booker T recently predicted that NXT Women’s Tag Team Champion Roxanne Perez could be just as successful as Lita in WWE.
The six-time world champion has seen Perez develop from the ground up as she honed her craft at his Reality of Wrestling school.
Speaking of hall of fame Podcast, Booker T said that in their early training days, he saw similarities between Perez and the four-time WWE Women’s Champion:
“I remember when Roxanne was talking about getting into WWE. I said, ‘That’s one that we really don’t want to screw up because we’re watching Lita enter the Hall of Fame 20 years into her career. That’s Lita,” Booker said.[Roxanne] Lita is 20 years from now going into the hall of fame and I’m like, ‘We can’t screw this up.'” (H/T: Wrestling Inc)
While she may still have a long way to go before she reaches the same heights as Lita, Perez’s early WWE career is already filled with championship success.
Will Lita return to the ring?
Earlier this year, Lita made a triumphant return to the ring when she challenged Becky Lynch in the Elimination Chamber for the RAW Women’s Championship.
Despite failing against the Irishwoman, the 47-year-old star looked better than ever.
During a recent interview with Chris Van Vliet, Lita opened up about a possible return to the ring:
“It’s tempting, but at the same time I don’t know. I feel contradicted. I’m proud of what I did with Becky and all is well. But at the same time, there’s this part that says, ‘Well how much better would it be if I trained for it when the opportunity came my way again?’ But I don’t want to force it. It could happen. Someone could call me on TV and then I will answer. ” (H/T: WrestlingNews.co)
Given the incredible reception she’s received and the fact that she’s on par with today’s stars, the WWE Universe is hoping that Lita returns sooner rather than later.
