Regarding this recent match, Booker T said the following on his Hall Of Fame podcast:
“I wouldn’t call it an in-ring return. I would think I never really left the ring, really.
I haven’t officially said I retired or anything like that. So any time you see me inside the ring, I’m just back, you know what I mean?
You’ve heard me say it many times, man, I have no itch to scratch or anything like that. Stepping back in the ring is not something I’m looking to do.
I always said if WWE was to ask me to come back I’ll do it, but it’ll only be for the check. But to do it for Reality Of Wrestling, a company that I built with my own two hands…it meant a lot, and it’s special to see the guys around the wrestling community respond to, there again, not a WWE show, but a Reality of Wrestling show.
It just makes the world see Reality of Wrestling in a different light.”
