Booker T not being on Raw is a little shocking for those who loved his stint with the brand. But Robert Booker Tio Huffman knows the business quite well, and he’s not leaving the world of wrestling.
With his 21 titles, Booker T is one of the most decorated wrestlers in WCW history. This includes a record six WCW World Television Championships, and 11 WCW World Tag Team Championships.
During the 2015 premiere of Raw, Booker T replaced Jerry Lawler as commentator. He later became a full time commentator and Lawler moved to Smackdown.
Though many think that Booker T was fired, that does not seem to be the case. He is still with the WWE, just in a different capacity. In any case, we are sure that he and The Coach will do well in their new roles!
