There have been rumblings recently of a return to the ring for Booker T, who has sporadically competed over the last few years as he is mostly retired, mostly for his Houston-based promotion, Reality of Wrestling.
However, as per Sean Ross Sapp’s latest update for Fightful Select, there are no current plans for him to return to a WWE ring.
The 57-year-old last competed for the Fed in 2012, teaming with Drew McIntyre against Christian and Mark Henry in Glasgow, Scotland, during a house show.
He has since competed in five matches, including four for Reality of Wrestling.
While the former WCW Champion still looks in great shape, a return to the ring for the sake of it makes less sense, especially seeing how a lot of other legends’ returns have not really gone to plan.
Booker has quite the glowing legacy, and he is a trailblazer in his own right, so returning unless it is absolutely necessary or makes sense for WWE would be the best option.
Perhaps a short stint in NXT guiding the younger generation makes the most sense, else it would be best that the former king continues in his recently-accrued role as a commentator with the black and gold brand.
