Booker T Hospitalized Before Raw

In surprising news just before Raw, it was revealed that WWE Hall of Famer Booker T had been hospitalized and would not be in his regular spot on the Raw pre-show. The reason behind Booker’s hospital visit was not immediately made public, but his wife Sharmell posted several pictures on Instagram to reassure fans that there was no serious issue, showing Booker relaxing at the hospital and resting comfortably at his house shortly afterwards. Thankfully, it was later revealed that Booker had gone to the hospital for elbow surgery, so everything seems okay for the 5-time WCW Champion, and hopefully he’ll be able to resume his usual duties for WWE in the near future.

In other Booker T-related news, one of his prized pupils was signed to a WWE developmental deal this weekend, which you can read more about here.

Thanks for all the prayers and support! Booker is home and doing well
