Mike Killam

Booker TWWE Superstar and current commentator for Friday Night Smackdown, Booker T recently did an interview for the Miami Herald. In it he talks about the upcoming Royal Rumble, his status for the event, his journey into commentary, and more. Below are some of the highlights from the inverview, but you can read the whole thing HERE

-On returning to the WWE and being a part of the commentary team: 
"I've worked so hard to get to this position in my career. I never in a million years thought it would be so great. Being able to be out there and watch the young guys, the guys of the future, the guys who are going to have to carry WrestleMania's for the next 15 years, that's really awesome." … "I knew I wanted to wrap up my in-ring career. I wanted to get away from that. There comes a time when you got to pass the torch, and when I came back, it's been great. I never thought it would be as good as it's been this last year. It's been awesome." 

-When asked who he would throw over the top rope: 
"I wish I could throw Michael Cole over. He falls on his head, forgets who he is, forget he's a broadcater and go work somewhere else, or stay at home." … "Michael Cole can be a headache sometimes, but he really has brought me along," Booker T said. "Vince McMahon has helped me so many times. Josh Matthews. These guys have helped me hone my craft. It's a learning process, just like being in the middle of that ring. You have to goout there and re-tool all over again."
