Last night at Reality of Wrestling’s Christmas Chaos 8 show in Texas City, Texas, WWE Hall of Famer Booker T made a return to the ring and accepted the challenge of ROW Heayweight Champion Rex Andrews for a one-on-one match at their show, ROW The Last Stand next month.
Booker T hasn’t wrestled a match on WWE television since WrestleMania 28, losing in a 12-person tag team match. Following his illustrious career in WWE, he appeared in a variety of other wrestling promotions like Total Non-Stop Action Wrestling and the International Wrestling Association before creating his own wrestling promotion, the aforementioned Reality of Wrestling.
Booker T returned to the WWE in 2014, but has yet to compete in a wrestling match; he instead takes part in commentary, the expert panel discussion on PPV Kickoff shows, or has made the periodic cameo appearance on WWE TV.
Reality of Wrestling Heavyweight Champion Rex Andrews called out Booker T and told him he has nothing left to offer him unless he steps inside the ring for one more match. Booker tried reasoning with him by saying he’s done nothing but try to guide him and that everyone gets to the point where they want to test themselves. Booker T continued they can settle it in the backstage area with an exhibition match. Andrews says it’s not good enough and he wants the competitor that Booker T used to be.
Booker T collected himself before delivering a kick to Andrews’ abdomen and a couple chops to his chest. Andrews retaliated with a forearm and then the men wrestled off camera in a series of reversals, Andrews tackled Booker to the ground and then Booker rolls out of the ring. Booker grabs the microphone and tells Andrews, “Next month, show up and I’m gonna show out, Sucka!”
