At last night’s WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view Booker T entered as #21 in the 40-man Royal Rumble match as a surprise entrant. The way he was eliminated by Mason Ryan made it seem like he doesn’t have a contract but worked on a per shot deal. We’ll post more information when we get it. Additionally, Kevin Nash entered tonight’s 40-man Royal Rumble as Diesel at #32. He was quickly eliminated by Wade Barrett which makes me think, like Booker T, he doesn’t have a contract as of this writing.
It should be interesting to see if both or either of them decide to sign with TNA Wrestling as part of their ongoing “they” storyline that is set to be revealed at this Thursday’s TNA Wrestling iMPACT! broadcast. The company has been promoting the debut of “they” for three weeks now, and there have been rumors that it is the return of the Main Event Mafia faction. Both Booker T and Nash were both pivotal parts of the original Main Event Mafia faction. WrestleHeat.com will continue to follow this developing story in the coming days, especially after tomorrow’s iMPACT! taping.
