    Ive heard three explanations.

    1. Booker still had the stigma of being a WCW guy ( which might have been what the promo was supposed to be about)
    2. Booker wasnt sure how much longer he was satying before retiring.
    3. Booker was going to go over but then wwe signed goldberg and needed the title to go to him from HHH.

    Millon Dollar Man vs Virgil is a best example of that done right

    Or you let the racist dude win, cut more racist promos, and then have another guy beat him, as long he's not white it still works.
    Or let the doctor of thuganomics beat him.

    Crankyvince twitter is saying Swagger is the one who asked for his release.
    If swagger was in aces and 8s that would be a step up from wes Briscoe and Festus.

    Banking on him being the surprise Royal Rumble entrant. Miss those spider-man spots he does. Speaking of the Royal Rumble I hope this years Rumble have better participants than last year.

    Hopefully he will come in and eliminate someone setting up a feud, which they used to do and seem to have totaly forgot about the last few years.
    Royal Rumble is good for setting up multiple things to build on, they have been wasting it.

    On a totaly unrelated note, i was watching the brock lesnar dvd, and jesus christ was he good.
    If ryback has any athletic ability he has just been hiding they should really watch these tapes and do what they did with Brock.

    I don't think it's a good idea for a wrestling heel to be racist, simply because wrestlers tend to flip flop.

    A bad guy being racist is "fine" because he's a bad guy, and he's supposed to do "evil" things that we know are wrong. But this same guy 2 years from now might be needed to give hi-fives to kids at ringside.

    Though I guess if you're Triple H it doesn't matter. He's over enough to do pretty much anything as a heel, and still get his face heat back when he needs it.

    WOuld have been nicer if Booker got more pack though. I think he did win a non-title match or something on RAW prior to WM. That was something I guess.

    As much as I liked Booker, at the time I'm not sure he was actually over enough to win the world title.

    Honestly, I don't think Booker really established himself as a legit main eventer until he had his King Booker run. That's when I think everything came together.
