STAR: Booker T is running for mayor

BOOKER T has announced that he plans to run for mayor of Houston, Texas.

The WWE legend – who was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2013 – made the shock announcement late last night on the “Heated Conversations” Sportsradio610 podcast.

He made his intentions clear while speaking to fellow WWE superstar Rhyno – who recently ran for a seat in the Michigan House of Representatives.

And he’s already got a clear backer, with Rhyno claiming Booker is “over-qualified for the job”.

Rhyno – or Terrance Gerin – said: “ 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.”

CHAMP: Booker T is a WWE legend

If Booker is successful he will join former WWE star Jesse Ventura as one of the very few wrestlers to make the transition from the ring to public office.
