Booker T hasn’t received his Royal Rumble invitation as of yet, though that hasn’t stopped him from getting in in-ring shape.
Booker T is a color commentator on WWE NXT. In addition, he’s a regular on the WWE kickoff show for premium live events. The WWE Hall of Fame hasn’t wrestled a WWE match since 2012, when he shockingly appeared during the men’s Royal Rumble match.
Speaking on the latest edition of his Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T revealed he’s still waiting on WWE to send him his Royal Rumble invitation, noting that he’s training hard for a potential showing this Saturday.
“I’ve been working out, I’ve been training. I’m still waiting for my invitation for the Rumble coming up. Still waiting on my invitation, but I’ve been training. You see the pictures I posted after that last match? I’ve been in the gym, I’ve been training. I’ve been underground. When you go underground training, Brad, you have no idea what that is all about. Trust me, you have no idea. This CrossFit and all that stuff don’t compare at all to going deep, deep, deep, underground, and that’s where I’ve been, man. I’ve been in the trenches [laughs], so I’ve been waiting on something to come in the mail.”
It remains to be see if Booker T will work the Royal Rumble tomorrow night. Stay tuned to Pro Wrestling Exclusive for more.
