One more time? Retirements in wrestling are not quite the same thing as retirements in other sports. You don’t often see mainstream athletes returning to play after several years off, as there isn’t exactly a way to participate in one game. Wrestling is different though, as there is always a way for someone to come back to the ring for a one off match. That is what another legend is planning to do.
WWE Hall of Famer Booker T. has announced that he will be returning to the ring for a tag team exhibition match at a Realty of Wrestling event in Canton, Texas on January 22. Booker will be teaming with Gaspar Hernandez to face Garza and Dexx. Since retiring from the ring in 2012, Booker has wrestled four matches, three of which have been for Reality of Wrestling. In a video announcing the match, Booker talked about wanting to be a player/coach giving his students on the job training.

This should be good. Check out the announcement, plus some of Booker’s time in the ring:
Opinion: This is one of those things that you do not see happen very often but it should make for a fun night. Booker is far from an active wrestler these days but he can still pop in for a single match here or there. If nothing else, he should be able to help some of the younger wrestlers along and see what they can do, which is always nice to see from a legend like Booker.
What do you think of the idea? Which other legends would you like to see return to the ring? Let us know in the comments below.
