Booker T hasn’t been on WWE television recently due to suffering a torn triceps. According to a report by Dave Meltzer, Booker T had surgery and ended up getting an elbow infection. Teddy Long was given a larger role on television in recent weeks as a result. It was described as a “freak injury” and Booker is scheduled to be back on television in his role as the Smackdown General Manager by the end of the month.
