WWE Hall Of Famer Booker T recently spoke with the folks from Hannibal TV while being honored by the Dan Gable Pro Wrestling Museum with the Lou Thesz Award. Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.
On whether or not he still has any political aspirations: “I got my name in the hat for 2019 Mayor of Houston, Texas. The great city of Houston. I got a lot of you know bumps in the road. I got a lot of landmines I gotta figure out how I’m gonna get past. My past is checkered, of course. Everybody knows the Book is an open book.”
On his backstage altercation with Dave Bautista in WWE in 2006: “You know in professional wrestling, I’m sure in combat sports there’s always gonna be testosterone. Men a lot of times don’t agree with each other and that’s all it was. It was a disagreement. Him and I, we settled our disagreement. If I saw him today, he’d get a big hug and I’d say, ‘what’s going on?’ You know? He’s a man, just like I am.”
