2-Time WWE Hall of Famer Booker T is usually a part of the kickoff (Pre-Show) panels for WWE’s pay-per-views / premium-live-events, but wasn’t present for the recent Backlash 2023 show in Puerto Rico.

During a new episode of his weekly ‘Hall of Fame’ podcast, Booker explained why he didn’t travel to Puerto Rico to be a part of the event.

Here’s what the 5-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion said:

“The reason I wasn’t there was because the Kickoff panel didn’t go. That’s the only reason I didn’t go. Trust me, I was trying to get there, but none of us went on that trip.

I won’t be on another trip until SummerSlam because everything is pretty much on location in different places, so right now, I’m off until SummerSlam.

I’m still going to vacation, but I’m just going to do it on my own time.”

Booker T wrestled for Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling from 1993 until the company was bought by Vince McMahon in March 2001, and jumped ship right away, coming into the World Wrestling Federation as the reigning WCW World Heavyweight Champion a few months later.

He wrestled for the WWF (renamed WWE in May 2002) until 2007 and then joined Dixie Carter’s Total Nonstop Action! (TNA) until late 2009 and eventually returned to WWE in 2011 as a part-time wrestler and color commentator, among other non-wrestling roles.
