In 2005, more precisely in Houston, Texas, the legendary Booker T started his own small reality called Reality of Wrestling. A reality that has taken hold in the independent world, which over time has been able to give pleasant surprises such as one of the most interesting discoveries now located within the WWE, we are talking about the first ROH Women’s Champion in history and current NXT Women’s Tag Team Champion, Roxanne Perez (also known as Rok-C).
Well, last night in a show of its own ROW, its founding leader, the six-time world champion (including 5 in WCW), former couple champion of Impact and creator of the Championship legend during his time with the Main Event Mafia, official WWE Hall of Fame member, Booker T.
The 57-year-old fought in a 10-man tag team match with Mysterious Q, Bryan Keith, Blake Cortez and Gaspar Hernadez against Gino Medina, Stephen Wolf, Will Allory, Edge Stone and Ryan Davidson. Obviously, Booker T did everything possible to be recognized and celebrated in the best way and so he chose to make his entrance wearing one of the most famous costumes during his years in World Championship Wrestling.
Booker T is back
After retiring, Booker T was employed in various roles for WWE. General Manager, commentator, and columnist in the pre-shows of PPV is still today often continues in a role of this type. His bond with the federation then led him to be WWE Hall of Famer twice with the first singles entry in 2013 and the second in 2019 together with his brother Stevie Ray to celebrate their historic tag team in the WCW years, Harlem Heat.
Sharmell’s team consisted of Gino Medina, Stephen Wolf, Will Elroy, Edge Stone, and Ryan Davidson. Team Booker comprised Mysterious Q, Gaspar Hernandez, Blake Cortez, Brian Keith, and himself. Booker T took to Twitter to share a photo from the event showcasing his incredible physique and his Harlem Heat-inspired wrestling attire: “Got to step back in the ring last night at Reality of Wrestling and it felt GOODT!” he wrote.
While speaking on his Hall of Fame show, Booker T said that Theory could beat Roman Reigns or anyone else to become world champion if it’s the right situation and if he’s booked properly by WWE. “It’s not losing, but it’s how you lose.
He could beat Roman, he could beat anybody on the card if the situation is right. If a person is unconscious when I cash in, who loses? If you book it properly, Theory is not going to be one of the guys that [sic] got the briefcase and didn’t cash it in and win it.
I don’t see that happening. This kid has got way too much upside for something like that to happen. That’s just me and what I would be thinking if I had Theory in this position,” said Booker T.
