Booker T recently shared that he will be around WWE for a few more years.

King Booker started his career in WCW before eventually making his way into WWE. The Hall of Famer captured the United States and World Heavyweight Titles during his time, even winning the King of the Ring Tournament in 2006. Since leaving the squared circle, Booker has been with the promotion as a commentator and pre-show panelist.

While speaking with Ken Hoffman at CultureMap Houston, he was asked about his current relationship with WWE. He then replied that he has a great relationship with them and that his contract is active for a few more years.

"My relationship with the company [WWE] has never been better. My contract with them isn’t up for another several years. I’m still around doing the kickoff shows for all the premium events on Peacock. I sometimes host RAW Talk and Talking Smack and WWE has me involved with several other projects."
