Booker T might want one more match: “I never said I was retired”

While Booker T’s on-screen role has diminished since leaving the announce desk earlier this year, the former World Champion says that he’s still in tremendous shape and might be able to make a run in his promotion Reality of Wrestling. Even WrestleMania is a possibility if all the right questions are answered.

On a recent episode of his podcast Heated Conversations, Booker said that he was contemplating getting back into the ring.

I’ve never said I was retired. Harlem Heat’s retired, but as far as me, I’ve never said I was retired. I never said I was never gonna put the boots on ever again.

People ask me, ‘Man, are we gonna see one more match?’ I always say never say never. I feel good. My body is at as peak performance as it’s gonna get.

Booker went on to say that if the call came from the WWE for one more run, it’s something he’d have to think about.

I wanna know what people think about me getting back in the ring at Reality of Wrestling. Not WrestleMania or anything. For that…it would be something I’d really have to think about.

I don’t know if I could do it [at that level] again. Is the scissor kick going to be as violent? Can he still hop as far as the jumping side kick goes? Does he have one more Harlem Hangover left in his body?

Would you like to see Booker T return to in-ring action in the WWE? Who would you like to see him face off against for his final ride? Let us know in the comments below.

    Yeh it’s not a knock on booker I really liked his time in wcw and when he was with golddust in wwe I just find when older wrestlers come back it’s not the same.

    It’s a fair question. Wrestling fans can respect the legends and hall of famers of yesteryear while at the same time not being excited about them having a physical match when they can barely walk.

    Booker and Corey Graves getting it on!

  • Omar

    Id rather see a Lawler match than another Booker match.

  • Matt

    What a lack of respect towards a legend of our business. You should be ashamed of yourself.
