Booker T Speaks On Possibly Wrestling Again, His Infamous Hulk Hogan Promo

Posted by Matt Boone March 26, 2014 1 Comment

The following are highlights of a new FatDuckTech.com interview with Booker T:

On whether or not his upcoming second book was easier to write than his first: “This book here was totally different to the first book. The first book was really personal, this was just wrestling. Not a whole lot of wrestling stories about certain guys, drunken stupors or anything like that, like most wrestling books, it’s just a chronicle of Booker T’s career. Where he came from, totally the bottom of the totem pole, to close out a company, to be one of the only guys from that company to make it in WWE, and still to be here this many years later, a Hall Of Famer. it’s a quite a telling tale, both for the fans that read it as well as young wrestlers I think they’ll be intrigued.”

“Everything is chronicled in the book. Thank god for YouTube and Dailymotion. You can go back and find all of that stuff, and everything is there. Some of this stuff, I have to go back and watch it and go “Wow, OK, NOW I remember that.” It’s going to be totally accurate in terms of every little bitty thing that I did in professional wrestling. As well as a lot of cool stuff too.”

On his infamous promo about Hulk Hogan from WCW Spring Stampede: “Yeah, yeah (laughs). You know — Live TV? We weren’t taught as well as we were in WWE, especially back then.”

“We had the reigns to just talk and do whatever we wanted to do. I tell you, it’s a promo that’ll live in infamy, but there’s nothing you can do to run away from it, you know. Perhaps my most embarrassing and regretful moment in my wrestling career, but I bounced back from it.”

On the chances of a Harlem Heat reunion tour: “You know I never say never, but I’m so far past putting my tights and my boots on, going out and being a wrestler. I’m just over that stage of my life.”

“Some guys it’s just really hard for them to let it go, but for me it’s been really easy to let that stage of my life go, just because I’ve done everything that I’ve wanted to do in pro wrestling. I’ve won all the titles, I’ve been all over the world, I’ve seen it all. There’s just nothing left to prove.”

“Now I just want to be the greatest promoter I could possibly be, and perhaps follow in the footsteps of Paul Boesch and Vince McMahon and have my own mega-company one day.”

      Booker has invested his money very well over the years and is in a great position to possibly run his own show some day. Perhaps help Jarrett build the foundation for his new gig might be a wise investment.
