Booker T Discusses His New Announcing Position In WWE

Chris Cash

WWE.com caught up with new WWE Smackdown announcer, Booker T, as he discussed his new role with the company.  "I’ve actually been auditioning for years in front of the monitor, always entertaining the boys in the back [laughs]," Booker said while explaining how the announcing gig came about, "actually, a person asked me if I was ever going to come back to WWE. I told them that if I came back it probably wouldn’t be as WWE Superstar, because the young guys are really what it’s all about. Bringing me back as an announcer is a great position for me to actually go out and make the young guys bigger stars". 

Booker T also discussed his upcoming role as a trainer on WWE Tough Enough.  "I’ve always said that you have to get it from someone who has been there to really understand it. So I think that by these guys seeing I’ve been there, I must know what I’m talking about. I’ve had my wrestling school in Houston going on seven years now. It’s been very, very successful. I’ve produced a lot of good athletes, and they say nothing but good things about my training."
