Booker T opens up on a possible in-ring return in WWE

Last updated

WWE Hall of Famer Booker T has been away from in-ring action in WWE since 2012. However, he has wrestled in Reality of Wrestling. He recently talked about a possible return to the squared circle in WWE.

Booker T reveals if he wants another match in WWE

On this week’s ‘Hall of Fame’ podcast, Booker was asked if he ever thinks about having one more match in WWE:

‘No. I never think about another match in WWE. I mean if it happens, I think I’ll probably say yeah. It’s just not something wrestlers do is turn down wrestling matches or anything like that. But I don’t have any itch to scratch or anything like that. I’ve scratched every itch. Preparation is the only luck you’re ever gonna have. So I’ll be in the gym training. I can guarantee you I will be doing it just for the money (he laughs), and for no other reason, so I’m just keeping it real.’

Booker along with fellow commentators Jerry Lawler and Michael Cole all participated in the 2012 Royal Rumble. On the March 26, 2012 episode of Raw, Booker T saved Teddy Long from an attempted attack by Mark Henry, thus becoming the sixth and final member of Team Teddy at WrestleMania XXVIII, where Team Johnny emerged victorious. This marked his last official match for the WWE. 

Booker currently serves as the pre-show panelist for the WWE Premium Live Events.

During the same edition, he also talked about Adam Cole’s injury at the Forbidden Door PPV:

‘Good match. The match was going fairly well. The people were definitely into it. Then when that happened, you know, that’s wrestling right there,’ he said.

‘I don’t think that it’s anything other than that, wrestling. I’ve been in that position before where my bell has gotten rung where I think I’m okay, and my legs tell me, ’˜No, you’re not okay. Stay right here for a minute and we’re going to see if we can regroup.’ So that’s wrestling right there. I don’t call it reckless or anything like that. It’s just part of what we do.’
