Booker T hints at Harlem Heat reunion to face The Revival at the 2020 Royal Rumble

Harlem Heat

A new year and a new decade has started, which means the Road to WrestleMania is about to kick off with the Royal Rumble.

There's always a surprise return or two in the Rumble matches themselves, although with the amount of talent WWE possess on the active roster, there's no real need for legends to pad out the matches in 2020.

But one WWE Hall of Famer is hinting about a potential return at the 2020 Rumble - not in the titular match, but to reform a highly-successful tag team.

Booker T's last televised match in WWE was way back at WrestleMania 28 in 2012, and he's been semi-retired since then, occasionally competing on the independent scene.

Now 54 years of age and pretty much a full-time analyst for WWE on their Kick Off shows and WWE Backstage, the six-time world champion is still in great shape, and one current tag team has been calling him out recently - The Revival.

Dash Wilder and Scott Dawson tried to goad Booker T before TLC last month, and told him to 'get the band back together' with his brother Stevie Ray - who partnered with Booker to win the WCW World Tag Team Championships 10 times as Harlem Heat.

It all seemed like jesting at the time, however judging by Booker's comments on Backstage on New Years Eve, it may become a reality.

“You know what? Me and my big brother [Stevie Ray], we talking about it," Booker told Renee Young.

"We gonna be discussing that over the beginning of the new year.

"I got one left in me. One. Dawson. Wilder. Don’t get jacked up, sucka!”

Harlem Heat won the WCW Tag Team Championships a record 10 times together

Stevie Ray is now 61, and he last stepped into the ring in 2015, teaming with Booker at his Reality of Wrestling promotion to win their tag titles.

The big drawing point to this potential Harlem Heat v Revival match is the fact that the Rumble is in the city of Houston - the home of Booker T and Stevie Ray.

Will it actually happen? We're guessing not - but in the world of professional wrestling, literally anything is possible.
