Booker T Speaks About Being Approached For One Last Match
“I was approached actually to have a final match next year at Starrcast,” Booker said. “Harlem Heat’s final match, here in Texas. I said ‘Hell no.
We ain’t doing none of that.’ I just had a match a couple of weeks ago, my knee was killing me. I can only imagine what it’s going to feel like next year. Y’all can forget about seeing me do one last match.
“The thing is, I’m still working, I’m still having matches. You’re just never going to see me have a ‘last match.’ You’re never going to see me doing a lot in the ring. I’m never going to build up a match like I’m doing a whole lot.
‘One tag in, one tag out. That’s it, I’m done, where’s my check?’ I learned from one of my teachers back in the day, ‘Hacksaw’ Butch Reed. I got to tag with him down in the Global Wrestling Federation, and he said ‘Man, I’m coming in one time.
I’m coming out and asking for my check.’ That’s the way you do it”. Booker T wrestled about a month ago at his own promotion called Reality of Wrestling. He teamed up with Gaspar Hernandez, Blake Cortez, Mysterious Q, and Brian Keith.
It was a 10-man tag match. During the podcast, he hinted that he will wrestle in tag team matches in the future. He stated that he might get in the ring with FTR, that is very well known for holding the ROH Tag Team Titles. Booker T was at one time the most popular WCW wrestler, during Monday Night Wars.
He won the WCW Title 5 times in the past. After WCW went out of business, Booker T joined WWE. For a very long time, he worked at WWE as a mid-card wrestler. He had to work extremely hard to receive a push from the WWE. Starrcast 6 has not been announced yet. However, according to Booker T, Starrcast 6 will most likely be held in Texas in 2023.
