Former WWE star Paul London has announced that he is now once again accepting bookings, with his main goal being to help the younger generation of talent.
Speaking on Rene Dupree’s Cafe de Rene podcast, London made the announcement that he would be taking the bookings, effective immediately.
“I have come to a conclusion, a slight announcement. I will begin, effectively immediately, I will begin entertaining and accepting bookings again, to return to the ring. I was feeling fairly irresponsible. I’m at a point where I feel it’s a responsibility to do what I can do to help the current and younger generation. If I can help in any way, whether it’s having the lightbulb go off to teach them how to preserve their body or their career or not do stupid shit or wait for hours for someone to dive onto them, I’d like to help. It’s easy to point out things that are wrong and could be better, it’s another thing to get in there and apply yourself and do what you can to help people.”
London hasn’t wrestled full time since 2018, and he continued on, saying that he believes he has a lot more left in the tank in his wrestling career.
“I still have quite a bit left in the tank. I’m kind of in the Blake Griffin part of my career where I can still do a lot of things. Maybe I won’t be dunking over KIAs, but I like to think that I still have a lot to offer any locker room, if they’re smart enough.”
Paul London has competed for WWE, ROH, PWG and Lucha Underground thoughout his career. He is a former WWE Cruiserweight Champion and former WWE Tag Team Champion during his first run in WWE.
London’s WWE career lasted from 2003 until 2008, where he spent most of his time on the SmackDown brand as part of the Cruiserweight division.
London famously found himself in hot water with Vince McMahon due to him being shown smiling on camera during the infamous segment when Vince McMahon’s limo blew up on Raw back in 2007.
