Booker T & Tyler Reks News

Booker T has hired Bill Behrens to represent him for indy bookings, which would indicate that he is not returning to WWE anytime soon. He had been negotiating about a Royal Rumble return a few weeks ago. In a recent radio interview he claimed that he did not want to work the standard WWE schedule. “Going back to the WWE, I know I would have to pretty much (do) 180 days a year. I don’t think that is something I want to do at this point. A lot of people speculate, but if I was to go back to the WWE, it would probaby be from a wrestling announcer standpoint. That’s something I have always wanted to do. TNA is better for me as far as scheduling goes, but I don’t think I’ll be working that hectic schedule anymore.” Booker also claimed to have been frustrated with the creative direction of TNA and that he wanted to work more with Kurt Angle, Scott Steiner and Sting.

Marc Lanciaux, who produces the sound for WWE’s TV shows, put up a message on his Twitter page saying “Thank you Tyler Reks for not only delaying our flight, but also for providing me with blog material. Nice knowing ya.” Both Lanciaux and Reks (real name Gabriel Tuft) were on a flight out of Green Bay last week. As the plane was preparing to take off on the runway Reks demanded to be taken off the plane, trying to convince other passengers to come with him. He made enough of a commotion that the take-off was delayed and the plane returned to the gate. He claimed that he was a pilot and heard sounds that indicated a fault in the plane.
