Booker T Says He’s “Almost Thinking About One More Match”

WWE Hall of Famer Booker T has hinted that he’s contemplating stepping back inside the ropes.

Booker T hasn’t wrestled since turning out for his own Reality of Wrestling promotion in early 2020. The appearance was one of only four that the former World Champion has made since retiring from full-time competition back in April 2012.

However, the Hall of Famer has hinted that he might be ready to get back in the ring one more time. Speaking on his Hall of Fame podcast, Booker talked up the potential of one of his young trainees Gaspar Hernandez. He then suggested that he might be tempted to have one more match to help his protégé get to the next level.

“I’m almost thinking about having another match. I’m almost thinking about getting back in the ring one more time at Reality of Wrestling and doing something, perhaps with my protégé, Gaspar. Just to back him on something, just to put him under my wing and show him what it’s like up close and personal. Sometimes when you want something done, you have to do it yourself,”

Expanding further on the potential of Hernandez, Booker T tipped the rookie as a star on the rise, predicting that he’s going to the moon.

“This kid, he’s a star on the rise. He’s a diamond in the rough. We are going to polish him Harlem Heat style, teach him what it means to go out there and just beat the hell out of somebody, no frills. We ain’t gonna go there and think about no ‘spots’, somebody jumping off something. Bring the pain, bring the pain, that’s what we’re going to be teaching this kid. I’m going to tell you right now, he’s going to skyrocket and go straight to the moon, real, real quick,”

Elsewhere on the podcast, Booker also heaped praise on former Raw Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley. The former King of the Ring said that Ripley was a “money machine” comparing her to wrestling legend Hulk Hogan.
