Booker T made a guest appearance behind the commentary booth on WWE Raw this week, but would he ever join AEW? On a recent episode of the Hall of Fame podcast, co-host Brad Gilmore asked the two-time WWE Hall of Famer what was holding him back. Booker laughed as he said, I’ve got about six years left on my contract, maybe seven.
I’m not going anywhere, man. I’m never going to have to say never or any of that, but I really like where I’m at with the WWE right now. The legend has several projects on the go, including his Reality Of Wrestling promotion based in Houston, as well as his podcast & his Smack Talk series with WWE as well as A&E. He also returned recently to in-ring action with his own Reality of Wrestling promotion, making an appearance in full WCW Harlem Heat regalia.
Which sparked speculation about whether he was tormenting a come back to tag action to his Hall Of Fame brother Stevie Ray. Booker clarified that everything was done to have more eyes on ROW, but he did not carry out a come back to tag action if the cash was right, the opposition made perfect sense, and the companion was ready. Booker stated that Stevie Ray may not be physically able to attend, but he won’t rule out a reunion with Dustin Rhodes, a.k.a. Goldust.
On even the most recent episode, Booker also mentioned that he was approached for a Last Match at the next rumoured Starrcast, but he declined the offer because he never wants to have a “last fight.” Aside from that, the veteran six-time world champion admitted he is conscious of how bad his knees are currently feeling as a result of his ROW appearance.
In sports and entertainment and professional wrestling, nevertheless, retirements are not usually the end of a talent’s career. Although have retired but never wrestled again, stars frequently appear on shows, either trying to hit their iconic finishers or being used to help build other stories. Shawn Michaels, a WWE Hall of Famer, wrestled one match within a week of his retirement at WrestleMania 26. Nonetheless, it has been implicated in several plotlines and angles since, and the company has used it during several commemorative shows.
With news that Vince McMahon’s 40-year run with the WWE was coming to an end just before the July 22 SmackDown, some believe Vince’s retirement will be similar to that of previous superstars. I wouldn’t be surprised if Vince returned to the WWE. I wouldn’t be surprised if Vince made periodic showings, WWE Hall of Famer Booker T says I will not be surprised anyway because he’s a point of interest I could see Vince back in certain capacity.
