Will Booker T return to the ring on a permanent basis?

Booker T fought in the most important federations in the world, managing to conquer the beauty of 35 titles. He is the most decorated wrestler in WCW history, having held 21 belts including the WCW World Heavyweight Championship, the WCW World Television Championship and the WCW World Tag Team Championship.

He took a lot of satisfaction even during his WWE experience, to become a global icon. The 57-year-old from Plain Dealing was the winner of the 17th edition of the 'King of the Ring' tournament in 2006 and the eighth performer in history to complete the Grand Slam.

In 2013 he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as a singles wrestler, while in 2019 as a member of the 'Harlem Heat' alongside his brother Stevie Ray. Through his federation, Reality of Wrestling, Booker T made his return to the ring by participating in a 10-man tag team match.

In the latest edition of his 'Hall of Fame' podcast, the former heavyweight champion made it clear that he does not want to go back to fighting on a permanent basis.

Booker T comments on his future

“As I have already said several times, it is not my intention to return to the ring on a permanent basis or anything like that” - Booker T began without mincing words.

“If WWE offered me a job and good pay, I'd think about it with my family. It was special to perform for Reality of Wrestling, a company that I built with my own hands. I have to admit that I was surprised at the way the wrestling community reacted, I even got a few tears” - added the two-time WWE Hall of Famer.

Booker T also spoke of Ric Flair’s imminent return to the ring: “What Ric is doing is not propitiated by vanity as many claims, but by his love for this business. Some time ago, he told me that he would never retire.

He is like that, nothing can be done about it. You just have to have respect for a legend of his caliber”. Booker T was asked on The Reality of Wrestling about the newly-debuted group on SmackDown, Maximum Male Models.

"I like it [MMM]. You got to be different. This business is character-driven, it really is. You can't have a wrestling show and just have people excited about people wrestling. Being able to bring something interesting, like the Maximum Male Models. Hey man, women love seeing men dressed a certain way."
