Can you dig a potential wrestling comeback for Booker T? As it turns out, the 2-time WWE Hall Of Famer doesn’t rule out that notion in the latest episode of his Hall Of Fame podcast.
“I’m all about just being ready and in the moment and I know we’re going to talk about that in a second. People are gonna say, ‘Well, you just said, “Sting! It’s a young man’s game!”‘ But I’ve always also said, ‘It’s about checks and championships.’ It’s about getting a check and the only way that’s gonna happen in every field that I’m in is when I show up, people go, ‘That’s Booker T.’ I cannot show up and not look like Booker T. I gotta be ready all the time because people expect, when they see Booker T, ‘Oh my God! Dat’s dat boy there!’ One of those type of deals.”
Brad then straight out asked him if the reason for sharing that photo meant he is angling for an in-ring return in 2021.
“No that’s not the reason, but if the chance came, and I was able to get back in the ring and make the walk one more time, there again man, I tell people all the time, it’s really so hard to turn that down and say, ‘Nah I don’t want to do that.’ I feel like if it’s the right situation, I feel like if I can go out there and do it, you know why not? And then, there again, if it’s a check attached, you know, man, why not? It’s not going to hurt anybody, hopefully, I don’t get hurt going out there and trying to pull it off, but am I prepared to go out and have a match right now? I think so.”
Now tell me he didn’t just say that! Oh, he did, but also stated he also getting another year older and wants to remain in the best shape he can. The Royal Rumble obviously is this month and Booker did just appear on RAW last night so there will be plenty of speculation as that clock counts down. Check out the full episode below.
