WWE Hall of Famer Booker T just announced his intent to run for Mayor of Houston, Texas in 2020. The announcement came during his “Heated Conversations” radio program on Saturday night. The show airs on Sports Radio 610.
“You heard it, 2020 I’m preparing,” Booker said. “I’m preparing myself to run for mayor of the city.”
Booker is currently a WWE Pre-show co-host on the WWE Network. He noted that he talked to fellow WWE star Rhyno for advice. Rhyno recently ran for a seat in the Michigan House of Representatives. He was a guest on Saturday’s show and believes Booker T can do it.
“You are over qualified for the job. Wrestling not only prepares you for life but it prepares you for positions like that because you feel the emotion from the people you know what they want, you’ve built yourself from where you were to where you’re at now.”
Booker is likable and driven and just may pull it off.
