Booker T Makes In-Ring Return After Two Years

Booker T

WWE Hall of Famer Booker T has stepped in the ring for the first time in two years and says it felt “GOODT!”

Booker T had the kind of in-ring career many pro wrestlers can only dream of. Making his name in WCW as part of Harlem Heat alongside his brother Stevie Ray in the mid-1990s, the star went from strength to strength and eventually captured the WCW World Heavyweight Championship in 2000 and went on to win it three more times, including on the final episode of Nitro.

After making the move to WWE, the legend was involved in feuds with the likes of Stone Cold Steve Austin, Kurt Angle, and Edge. During his time in the company, he won the WCW Championship for the fifth and final time before it was retired. He also held the World Heavyweight Championship in 2006.

Booker T had his final match in WWE at a SmackDown live event in Glasgow, Scotland in April 2012. There he teamed with Drew McIntyre to defeat Christian and Mark Henry.

Since then, he has only made a few appearances in the ring, mainly for his Reality of Wrestling promotion. His last match saw him on the losing end of a tag team bout in 2020.

However, on July 9th, Booker T stepped into the ring once more, again in a tag match for ROW. He teamed up with Mysterious Q, Bryan Keith, Blake Cortez, and Gaspar Hernadez to take on Gino Medina, Stephen Wolf, Will Allory, Edge Stone, and Ryan Davidson.

To mark the occasion, he wore ring gear covered in flames that was a throwback to his WCW days.
