A promoter has denied Booker T’s claim of being offered a “last match”.
In July, Conrad Thompson promoted the “Ric Flair’s Last Match” event in Nashville during Starrcast V weekend. Since then, there has been discourse of other legends having similar shows in the same vein.
Shortly after the event, Booker T said he was approached about Harlem Heat having a farewell match at next year’s Starrcast, but he said “hell no”.
In a new interview with Wrestling Inc’s Nick Hausman, Starrcast promoter Conrad Thompson denied this claim by Booker T.
“They didn’t exist. I never approached Booker about having a last match, but I think as you and I are talking, Booker’s wrestling this weekend for his promotion.”
“I think the world of Booker and I respect Booker, but I’ve never had a conversation with Booker about doing a last match. Not once.”
Thompson would later reveal that after a “miscommunication” regarding an appearance he says Booker agreed to at Starrcast 3 in 2019 became public, the promoter said:
“I don’t imagine Booker T and I will be doing any business together in the future.”
Booker T will make his in-ring return for his Reality of Wrestling promotion later this month. Meanwhile, he will continue to serve as color commentator on WWE NXT.
