Booker T Wants One More Match, But Not For WWE. Comments On Younger Talent.


The charismatic Booker T was the latest guest on the Steve Austin Show where he and the Rattlesnake shoot the breeze on the professional wrestling industry. In their talks, Booker states that he loves being an ambassador for the WWE and interacting with the younger talent because it keeps him feeling fresh.

I love still being a part of the company, still love being an ambassador. I love being around the young guys. They keep me young. I love being able to give them that knowledge, man, as well to push them to the next level. They need someone like [Austin] and [me] to say, ‘go do your thing.’

He also explains how he tries to teach some talent how to preserve their bodies better.

I see guys now and they don’t care about the safety of the guy they’re working with. They’ll just pick him up and toss him! And how did he land? And the thing is, the guy that’s getting tossed, he does not care either, so it goes both ways. It’s crazy. I do try to talk to these young guys, and let them know, ‘hey man, you can still old school.’ I try not to cross our era with those young guys’ era. It’s their time. But I do try to tell them, ‘hey, some of the stuff we did still works today. All you’ve got to do is go out there and utilize them.

Most notable…Booker talks about wanting to possibly wrestle one more time and sites his son as a big reason why. However, the former five time (5x) heavyweight champion doesn’t want that matchup in the WWE, but with the promotion he co-founded, Reality of Wrestling. (ROW)

I’ve scratched every itch I’ve ever had in the business as far as working, but I want to have one more match at Reality Of Wrestling. My students, the guys that I mentor, the guys that I coach, these guys, they’ve got to know that their mentor, their sensei, can still go out there and still do it. Hey, I’m still the boss and I have to go out there and show these guys that I’m still the boss! It’s very important for me to do it, but only here at Reality Of Wrestling. As well as my son. He’s eight years old and he asked me just last week, he goes, ‘dad, what was it like when you were wrestling?’ I had to show him some old YouTube and he goes, ‘man, you [were] good! I wish I could have seen you.’ Do you know what I mean? Let me show my son that dad can still go out there and hold his own a little bit, so that’s important as well.”
