Booker T Looks Shredded In His In-Ring Return At 57 (Photos) – Former five-time world champion Booker T made his grand return to the squared circle at last night’s ROW (Reality of Wrestling) event in Texas, his first in-ring competition in roughly two years.
The WWE Hall of Famer wrestled in a 10-man tag team contest alongside of Bryan Keith, Blake Cortez, Gaspar Hernadez, and Mysterious Q, who all competed as the Team Booker group. They faced off against the pairing of Edge Stone, Ryan Davidson, Stephen Wolf, Will Allory, and MLW star Gino Medina.
That’s not all. Booker also gave fans at the event a treat by wearing a throwback outfit of his days in WCW, where he became one of the companies biggest standout stars. The 57-year old has remained a prominent figure in pro-wrestling due to his panel work with WWE, and his hit weekly “Hall of Fame” podcast.
Booker took to Twitter to give his thoughts on wrestling for ROW, which he founded in 2005. He writes, “Got to step back in the ring last night at Reality of Wrestling and it felt GOODT!”
After years on the road, Booker T has reduced his in-ring work as he focuses on his wrestling school, radio show, and is an analyst for WWE. His last WWE match took place in 2012 at a SmackDown dark match. His previous match was in February 2020, when he worked a 10-man tag for Reality of Wrestling.
As part of the new block of programming on A&E, Booker T, Peter Rosenberg , and WWE host Jackie Redmond will be featured on the ”WWE Smack Talk” show that will cover each Sunday’s episode of ”Biography: WWE Legends” and “WWE Rivals.” The show premieres tonight.
