On the latest episode of his Heated Conversations With Booker T podcast/B>, the WWE Hall Of Famer fielded questions from fans on a wide-variety of topics.
Among the subjects Booker T spoke of during the show included how long he feels The Undertaker will continue to wrestle in WWE and which legend he never got to face in the ring that he wished he had.
Regarding the amount of time he feels “The Dead Man” has left in him, the former Five Time WCW World Heavyweight Champion said there will come a time when he wants to say “I’m done with it.”
“He’s battle-tested, bruised, he’s battered, and he [has] been out of the game for quite some time. And he [has] been in the WWE for over 20 years solid. This guy [has] been in all of the big matches as far as the Hell In A Cell, every match you could possibly, exactly, you could think of, Undertaker has been there. And the thing is, he [has] held up. He has gone in there and he [has] pulled it off each and every year he’s asked to go out and perform and I commend Undertaker for that. But I tell you, there’s going to be a day Undertaker has to lay down and say, ‘I’m done with it’. There’s going to be that time when he goes into that casket and closes the lid on the career.”
The WWE pre-show and post-show member also revealed that “The Phenom” opted to make himself available for the upcoming WrestleMania 33 event in Orlando, Florida instead of having more work done to repair his bad knees.
“Who’s to say how long he can go? The mind can push the body so much further than you actually can imagine it can go. And I think that’s what The Undertaker is dealing with right now. I just saw him on Tuesday at SmackDown and The Undertaker is alive and well. He’s up and walking. And I think as long as The Undertaker is alive and well and up and walking, we’re going to continue to see him at WrestleMania do his thing.” Booker T added, “and the thing is he [has] had his injuries. Everybody knows it. He [has] gone through surgeries after surgeries after surgeries. Exactly and I just saw him and the thing is, I was talking to him about WrestleMania and he goes, ‘hey man, I could have got it worked on a little bit more, but I got to be there for the big show.'”
