The 2024 Royal Rumble Premium Live Event is just around the corner, with the anticipation among WWE fans peaking at the right time. There are many possibilities for epic returns in the Men's and Women's Rumble Matches.

One potential surprise entrant has declared that he is available for a Rumble appearance. WWE legend Booker T will be in town for the Kickoff Show and has discussed the possibility of returning in the Men's Royal Rumble Match.

While speaking on his Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T stated that he was ready for the opportunity and has been actively looking out for an invitation. The former WCW star seems to be in the best shape of his life:

"[Starts stretching] I’m stretching right now, man. I’ve been checking my email, I’ve been checking my Gmail to see if the invitation has come through. But like I said man, I’m in the best shape of my life, y’all. I’ve been training, I’ve been hitting the gym harder than I’ve ever hit it before. I’m serious, man. I’m serious on this. So if they need an extra man, if they need me to make that walk just one time going down in St. Petersburg, Florida, oh yeah, man. I will be ready, willing, and able to get the job done, guys," Booker T said. [2:53 - 3:34]

The WWE Hall of Famer said that he would bring an extra bag of his iconic white tights and boots to St. Petersburg, Florida, in case he gets that invite. Booker T is pretty adamant, repeatedly giving the Stamford-based company attention. The Book is quite ready for the 2024 Royal Rumble.

If Booker T does return at the Royal Rumble this Saturday, it will be the second straight year it will have happened. The six-time World Heavyweight Champion entered last year's Men's Royal Rumble Match at number 21 and lasted around a minute before being thrown out by Gunther.

While speaking on his Reality of Wrestling podcast, the NXT commentator concluded his bid to enter the Rumble with another massive tease, telling fans not to sleep on a potential return:

"Don’t sleep on St. Petersburg, Florida, and your boy Booker T stepping out to the ring just one more time. I got my phone, and I’m checking my emails, and I’m checking them twice because your boy want another shot. I’m just saying," Booker T said. [7:28 - 7:53]

It will be interesting to see if Booker T appears in the Men's Royal Rumble Match this Saturday and gets an invite ahead of time instead of during the Kickoff Show, like in 2023.
