“I’d Do It In A Heartbeat”
– Booker T recently caught up with Sports Illustrated and spoke about a wide variety of topics, check out the highlights below:
“I can tell you, if WWE asked me to come back and do a match, I’d do it in a heartbeat,” said Booker, who returned to WWE on Tuesday night to call the New Day’s tag team defense against The Bar on SmackDown 1000. “Preparation is the only luck I’ve ever had in my career, and if they asked, I’d be prepared.”
“My thing has always been preparation,” said Booker. “When I was a performer on the roster as one of the guys on a weekly, full-time schedule, I was always prepared,” said Booker. “When the Television title came my way in WCW, it was all because Rick Martel didn’t bring his boots. And then I heard, ‘Hey Book, we need you to step in and do this match.’ Then, when I stepped in the ring with Jeff Jarrett to win the heavyweight championship [at Bash at the Beach 2000], it was my time, and I was prepared for it.
“So if WWE was to ask me to do a match today, I would be prepared for it. This is my life, this is what I do. I’m in a good place right now. My Reality of Wrestling is going really well, my school is doing really well, my Heated Conversations radio show is doing really well, so I’m in a great place right now, but why not do it if you still can?”
“My son and my daughter are twins, they’re eight years old, and it’s important for me to let my children know they can do anything,” said Booker. “There are no barriers and there is no glass ceiling when you put in the work.”
