Booker T Shares Update On Plans For NXT Return

Booker T

Booker T won’t be away from NXT much longer.

In recent weeks Booker T has been absent from the NXT announce desk after revealing he was undergoing a medical procedure. The WWE Hall of Famer was quick to assure fans that he wouldn’t be away for long, and it seems his return is already on the horizon.

Speaking on his Hall of Fame podcast, Booker said he’s back in the gym and aiming to be back next week.

“I’m back in the gym. I’m feeling good. I’m one week out, and I’ll be back at the table, doing my thing, doing it like it’s supposed to be done, making all them suckas bow down, making them pay, making them say, ‘Daddy, I don’t want none.’ I can’t wait, man,”

The veteran added that his doctors are happy with his progress, and he won’t be missing from NXT for long.

“I’m coming back, I’m coming back strong in about one week. I’m about a week out. I had a doctor’s appointment this week, just to make sure it was all clear. Everything’s healing up real good,”
