It’s clear from Booker T’s podcast that he wants a match-up with former WWE NXT Superstar and commentator Corey Graves. The tension between them can be traced back to when Booker claimed Graves was the reason behind his ouster from Monday Night RAW.

Booker added that people thought he would beat up Graves the moment he set his eyes on him. He has challenged the former star on other occasions as well. Graves has primarily addressed the matter on Twitter but now things have taken a turn. The former wrestler and commentator is likely to get inside the ring again.

Graves had to retire from professional wrestling over injuries in 2014. He has since worked with WWE as a commentator and analyst. He is currently on the SmackDown panel. His take on the whole Booker T situation has led the fans to believe they might end up having another feud after all.

Booker also mentioned that he would take on Graves anywhere, be it the streets or in a ring, seemingly highlighting the rough patch between them. He added that he isn’t trying to pull an ‘Edge’, which was a reference to Superstar Edge coming out of retirement.

Wrestling fans are quite familiar with their ongoing rivalry. However, this could be one of WWE’s new angles to bring them both back into action. Edge, Daniel Bryan, and Shawn Michaels being prime examples of WWE superstars who came out of retirement and are still active performers.

Booker T can be heard saying on the podcast: “I want to make a comeback; at 55, I want to be able to go back and finish properly.”

Booker T is in excellent condition even for his age. Moreover, there is no doubt whether he could give that one last match fans hope for. It would be a satisfying ending to their rivalry, and Booker could pass the torch to the much younger Graves.
