WWE Hall of Famer Booker T recently spoke on his podcast, “the Hall of Fame,” about a variety of professional wrestling topics including an update on his health after a medical procedure.

Booker said, “I’m probably about 98% and good to go. I definitely can’t wait to get back in the saddle. My procedure went very well. I healed up pretty quickly. I’m not in any pain or anything right now. I’m looking forward to getting back to work. I hate being idle and sitting at home.”

On Tiffany Stratton and her performance in the Elimination Chamber match:

“She’s grown right before my very eyes and to see her in that position, it’s great. It’s great to see her in that position. I’d say Tiffany was one that was sitting under the learning tree, I mean, not just my learning tree. I’m talking about the learning tree of NXT, you know, Shawn, Matt Bloom and all the trainers down there. She was sitting under that learning tree and she was getting that knowledge. I felt like, you know, maybe three, four months, maybe six months prior, Tiffany Stratton could have went to the main roster, but I saw an interview that she did. She said, You know, I’m not rushing to get to the main roster or anything like that. I’m just going to just soak up all the knowledge I can, so when I do get to the main roster, I’ll be 100% ready for it. I’m paraphrasing, but she has gotten to that position and she is ready for that position. She could work with anybody in the world and you can believe if she wins that match and who loses that match, it’s not gonna matter. She could compete with anybody in the world. She’s just that good. Just think about it. She’s only a couple of years into the business. That is so uncanny. That is so extraordinary for somebody like her to be that young in this business that can go out there and work truly with the best of them from a psychology standpoint/ I give her a lot of credit for learning this business.”

If he would be allowed to attend Sting’s last match, and if so, would he attend:

“If I was off and I was invited, I probably would go. I mean, no one has invited me. Sting and I, we were close in a lot of ways. I wouldn’t necessarily say Sting and I were like friends or buddies that hung out or anything. We’ve never hung out or anything like that, but I have always had the utmost respect for Steve. If I was invited to be at his last last match, I definitely would consider it, you know, if I was off. If I’m off, I’m always available.”
