Houston (CBS HOUSTON) – Saturday night during “Heated Conversations” on Sportsradio610 WWE Hall of Famer Booker T announced that he plans to run for mayor of Houston.
“You heard it, 2020 I’m preparing,” Booker said during his radio show. “I’m preparing myself to run for mayor of the city.”
During the show, Booker sought out some advice from WWE superstar Rhyno (Terrance Gerin) – currently, wrestles for Smackdown live – who recently ran for a seat in the Michigan House of Representatives.
Gerin shared that he feels, Booker would make a great mayor.
“You are over qualified for the job,” Gerin said. “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.”
It’s years away, but if Booker is successful he will join former WWE star Jesse Ventura as one of the very few wrestlers who has been able to make the transition from the ring to public office.
