Booker T Recently spoke about possibly appearing at the WWE Royal Rumble. He is a 2 Time WWE Hall of Famer and one of WCW’s all-time greatest superstars. On his podcast, Booker T stated that he has so far not received an invitation to be a part of the WWE Royal Rumble this year.
People were expecting him to make a surprise appearance as many legends do this from time to time at the Royal Rumble.
Booker T Reveals That He Has So Far Not Received an Invitation
“I have to this point, not received an invitation.
My thing is, I always look for the invitation, I am always checking the mail, but I am not one seeking out being in the Rumble or anything like that. I don’t have any itch. If I would have received an invitation for the Rumble, I would have prepared for it.
“I may already be prepared, but I would have been ready for it. I would have shined. But no, I am not going to be in the Rumble, I am going to be there doing my job, talking about it. Making sure these guys get shined, make sure I put them over real nice, but that’s about as far as it’s going to go”.
Booker T then spoke about WWE keeping his entrance at Royal Rumble 2011 a secret. He stated that he went to the event directly from TNA at the time. “They brought me over from the hotel late,” he revealed. “They got me in there, big pop, the boys loved it, the fans loved it, I loved it.
I think that’s one of the only times I was held in secret. Especially coming from TNA. Because I came pretty much directly from TNA to the Rumble”. Booker T then revealed that TNA actually wanted to keep him under contract for a while longer during that time.
He spoke about talking to Kevin Nash about the situation. “I remember, maybe a week before the Rumble they were announcing in TNA that the Main Event Mafia was coming back,” he said. “They were reforming the Main Event Mafia.
I’m like, ‘what the hell are they talking about?’ They offered me like a three-month contract, and I was like, ‘guys, do you know how old my kids are? Do you know how fast three months goes? No way on that.’ I already knew I was going to be leaving the company, and I got the offer to actually be in the Rumble.
I remember Kevin Nash calling me and he goes, ‘hey Book, what are you going to do?’ And I go, ‘I’m going to be in the Rumble,’ and he goes, ‘me too, bro.’ And we showed up at the Rumble”.
