Booker T believes Malaysian professional wrestler Ayez Shaukat Fonseka Farid is destined for big things in the wrestling world.
The two-time WWE Hall of Famer, scheduled to make a WWE Raw appearance for its Legends Night special episode, spoke highly of Shaukat during an interview with Astro Supersport host Mark O'Dea.
"He is a kid I met in Malaysia when I went there one time and he is so amazing.
"He actually had dinner with me and asked me questions like what it would take to get pro wrestling [popular] in Malaysia, and I said he might need to be the one to create it and pull it off.
"He started watching videos [of] the best wrestlers in the world and he became so special that he created his own wrestling organisation in Malaysia!
"[When] he said to me because of Booker T, they had wrestling in Malaysia now , I got goosebumps," he said.
The six-time World Champion also revealed his plan to get Shaukat into the Reality of Wrestling, his independent professional wrestling promotion based in Houston, Texas.
"This kid is special. He has a knack for making fans feel a certain way when you watch him.
"He's such an artist as far as his mind goes, as far as the business goes. He is somewhat of a throwback to what wrestling was, as well as a hybrid to what wrestling is now."
"I can't wait for this pandemic to be over so I can get him here and into the Reality of Wrestling and hopefully to the big stage [WWE] one day."
