Former WCW and WWE World Heavyweight Champion Booker T has updated his status on returning to his General Manager role on WWE’s Friday Night Smackdown. As we previously reported, the “5 time, 5 time,…5 TIME” WCW Champion underwent surgery earlier this Spring and was taken off of television. Booker T went to Twitter Thursday afternoon to update his followers on his recovery process.
Hello universe just wanted to give an update, I should be back to my SD, GM duties very soon I really miss you guys.

Booker T has been Smackdown’s General Manager since July 31 of 2012. A “managerial feud” between Booker T and Teddy Long had begun just before he was removed from WWE programming. It is believed that the feud will resume from where it left off as soon as Booker T returns to his position.
