WWE Hall Of Famer Booker T has not competed inside a WWE ring since 2012, but he has recently teased that he could be making an in-ring return. However, it seems he has no interest in doing a cinematic match.
During his Hall of Fame radio show, Booker T revealed that he has no desire to compete in a cinematic match. It is not in his realm of expertise.
“No, that’s not my realm of expertise, I think. I don’t think Booker T’s name requires being in that type of match. I think it works when you have a guy like Sting, when you have a guy like The Undertaker when you have characters like Bray Wyatt.”
“For just Booker T that grew up in South Park, TX, no. He’s OG. He’s bad to the bone. 258 pounds of rompin’, stompin’, grave digging destruction. If he’s going to get somebody, he’s going to get them right in the middle of the ring.”
Booker T and Steve Austin’s grocery store match was somewhat of a cinematic match, made long before cinematic matches became commonplace.
