• Booker T Responds To Fans Saying WWE Jobbed Him Out At Royal Rumble 2023

2-Time WWE Hall Of Famer Booker T was a surprise entrant in the 2023 Men’s Royal Rumble match.

He entered the match at #21, delivered a few of his signature kicks, hit Finn Balor with The Book End, did the Spinarooine, and was eliminated by Intercontinental Champion Gunther.

Booker didn’t eliminate anyone and only lasted 42 seconds in the match.

On his podcast, Booker T addressed some of the comments fans made about his short appearance in the match.

Below is what the WCW Legend said:

“Gunther did an awesome job making history as well. That guy is going to be a major, major player here for WWE for a long time. It was my honor to do the favor for him.

I see people, like stupid people, saying, ‘Booker got jobbed out.’ Let me just say this. I want to say this publicly just so everybody can hear.

I would rather be jobbed out by Gunther than Gunther be jobbed out by me any day of the week.”

When asked if he plans on having a match at WrestleMania 39, Booker said:

“It’s a young man’s game and I don’t plan on being nowhere near that 20 by 20 at WrestleMania other than if they want to throw me on the commentary table for a match or something like that. I’m down with that.

Other than that, no. I don’t plan on going out there and doing anything at WrestleMania.”
