Booker T Says He Turned Down Offer To Have Final Match At Starrcast 2023


During the latest edition of his “Hall of Fame” podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Booker T revealed that he was recently approached about the possibility of having one final match for Harlem Heat at next year’s Starrcast event. However, the WWE legend turned the offer down.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On being approached for a final match at Starrcast in 2023: “I was approached actually to have a final match next year at Starrcast. Harlem Heat’s final match, here in Texas. I said ‘Hell no. We ain’t doing none of that.’ I just had a match a couple of weeks ago, my knee was killing me. I can only imagine what it’s going to feel like next year. Y’all can forget about seeing me do one last match.”

On never seeing himself having a “last match”: “The thing is, I’m still working, I’m still having matches. You’re just never going to see me have a ‘last match.’ You’re never going to see me doing a lot in the ring. I’m never going to build up a match like I’m doing a whole lot. ‘One tag in, one tag out. That’s it, I’m done, where’s my check?’ I learned from one of my teachers back in the day, ‘Hacksaw’ Butch Reed. I got to tag with him down in the Global Wrestling Federation, and he said ‘Man, I’m coming in one time. I’m coming out and asking for my check.’ That’s the way you do it.”
