Lately, there of been a lot of WWE Legends of the past returning for at least one more major match. The Undertaker, Shawn Michaels, Rey Mysterio, and the rumored Batista all spring to mind. However, now another legend wants to throw his name into the hat for one more match.
Booker T is a name that is synonymous with both WCW and WWE‘s Ruthless Aggression era. Sports Illustrated recently caught up with Booker and the master of the spin-a-rooni said he’s ready and willing should the call come down.:
“My thing has always been preparation,” said Booker. “When I was a performer on the roster as one of the guys on a weekly, full-time schedule, I was always prepared,” said Booker. “When the Television title came my way in WCW, it was all because Rick Martel didn’t bring his boots. And then I heard, ‘Hey Book, we need you to step in and do this match.’ Then, when I stepped in the ring with Jeff Jarrett to win the heavyweight championship [at Bash at the Beach 2000], it was my time, and I was prepared for it.
“So if WWE was to ask me to do a match today, I would be prepared for it. This is my life, this is what I do. I’m in a good place right now. My Reality of Wrestling is going really well, my school is doing really well, my Heated Conversations radio show is doing really well, so I’m in a great place right now, but why not do it if you still can?”
Booker also talked about the importance of his kids seeing him wrestle and letting them know that anything is possible.:
“My son and my daughter are twins, they’re eight years old, and it’s important for me to let my children know they can do anything,” said Booker. “There are no barriers and there is no glass ceiling when you put in the work.”
Booker T last worked a tag team match with brother Stevie Ray, known collectively as Harlem Heat, for Booker’s promotion Reality Of Wrestling in 2015.
