After having a long and successful career in the pro wrestling business, Booker T has reduced the amount of time and matches that he works inside of the squared circle.
The 53-year-old has worked just two matches since working a handful of contests in 2012. In 2015, Harlem Heat (Booker T & Stevie Ray) defeated The Heavenly Bodies (Desirable Dustin & Gigolo Justin) to win the ROW Tag Team Titles then in 2016, he beat Lionheart under the PCW banner.
Booker T was replaced by Jonathan Coachman on commentary for Monday Night Raw in January and was last seen on WWE programming in August during an episode of SmackDown Live when he made a surprise appearance as “King Booker” gimmick in a segment with The New Day.
