As seen just moments ago, Booker T returned to WWE SmackDown! tonight on SyFy after his surprise debut at the Royal Rumble this past Sunday to join Michael Cole and Josh Matthews on the SmackDown! announce booth. Booker T has apparently signed a new deal with the company, based on the fact that he’s doing color commentary, but it remains to be seen if he will be doing it long-term, or whether it will lead to a potential match in the future.
Booker T has been in talks with World Wrestling Entertainment for the past few months, which started months back when a pay-per-view was held in his hometown of Houston, Texas. He had suggested to higher-ups that he would like to commentate, but talks soon died down and then resurfaced on the week leading up to the Royal Rumble pay-per-view last weekend.
For those of you watching SmackDown!, what did you think of his commentary skills last night? Was he better than the man he replaced, Matt Striker? Give us your thoughts by leaving a comment below, WrestleHeat.com fans.
