WWE Hall of Famer Booker T joined The Roman Show, speaking to Jorge Alonso of Wrestle City Radio, during Florida Supercon’s Supercon Retro on Saturday, April 15 at the Miami Airport Convention Center.
Booker T discussed his temporary return (for now) to commentating on WWE Raw on Monday, April 17.
“There’s always pressure,” he said. “WWE is a machine. Being on SmackDown or RAW, I wouldn’t say it’s one in the same. They are two totally different brands, two different entities, but I am looking forward to working with Michael Cole and Corey Graves and giving it my brand of commentating. I bring my own style. I don’t speak like they do. I speak for the people. I think it’ll be refreshing. I am going to be there for six weeks for now, but you never know.”

He also voiced his opinion on tag team wrestling and praised a current team.
“Tag teams aren’t made; they are born,” he said. “Seriously, I look at the Nasty Boys, Steiner Brothers, Rock-n-Roll Express, Midnight Express, Harlem Heat.
“Gallows and Anderson, these are two guys who have watched each other’s backs for years. They are the true blood brother tag team. They’ve been together in Japan and other places.”
He also said there are several names the world of professional wrestling should look for from his promotion, Reality of Wrestling, which could possibly land on the WWE Network.
“It’s something that we want to do.” he said. “It’s a process. We’ve been doing it for 12 years that I’ve had my school, and for about four years we’ve been on Houston television. It’s one of those things a lot of young kids are trying to get to the business. Wrestling has been that underground sport, and for me I wanted to show them on how to create our own. We want to be the Triple A of professional wrestling.”
Supercon Retro ends Sunday, April 16. Then it’s time to get ready for the main event, Florida Supercon, which will occur July 27-30 at the Broward County Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale.
