Booker T’s Reality Of Wrestling Postpones 1/22 Event Due To COVID-19

Booker T‘s in-ring return has been put on hold.

Reality Of Wrestling was scheduled to host an event on Saturday, January 22 in Canton, Texas, and the show would have featured the in-ring return of Booker T. On Friday, ROW announced the event has been postponed due to positive tests and exposure to COVID-19 by talent and staff.

Booker T, owner of Reality Of Wrestling, posted the following statement on Twitter:

Due to staff and performers being exposed to and/or testing positive for COVID-19, we at Reality Of Wrestling have decided to postpone our show this Saturday in Canton, TX. We will update all of our fans with the new date once it’s been set.

– Booker T

Reality Of Wrestling also had to cancel its January 2 event due to the recent surge of COVID-19 cases in the Houston area.

One of the matches on the ROW Canton card was scheduled to be Booker T & Gaspar Hernandez versus Dexx & Rudy Garza, which would have been Booker’s first match since he worked a tag team match at a ROW TV taping in February 2020. Booker has not been a full-time competitor since finishing up with WWE in 2012, working just four matches since then. Will Allday, Ryan Davidson, Raychell Rose and Vert Vixen were some of the other names scheduled to appear in Canton.
