The Baltimore Sun is featuring an interview with WWE star Booker T who talks about his jump into commentary on for the company and his return to the ring at the TLC PPV tonight against Cody Rhodes.
On his time as a commentator for WWE:
“It was really tough. I didn’t think I was going to make it. But I’ve had a lot of help from the staff. … Those guys have really groomed me and helped me, but I’ve still got a lot of work to do. It’s a lot of fun. I’m loving it. It’s something I wanted to do for many, many years. It was a joke that back in the day that I always did commentary in the back when the guys were in the ring before me. I would be in the back doing it on the little monitor for the boys in the back.”
On getting back in the ring tonight at the TLC PPV:
“I’m definitely worried about my ring rust. And I’m really not that excited about being in the ring. I’m going out and defending my manhood. That’s a little more important than me being back in the ring. I was actually content with doing the commentary, but this issue with Cody Rhodes is getting bigger and bigger and the fans do want to see me go out there and perform.”
