Booker T Apologizes To Former WWE Star For In-Ring Injury
Booker T has publicly apologized to Paul London for an in-ring incident between them nearly two decades ago.
Booker broke London’s nose with a back elbow during a match on an episode of WWE’s “SmackDown” in 2004.
First and foremost, I want to apologise to Paul London.
I apologise if I hurt you or did anything you thought was malicious.
London discussed the incident during an episode of the “Cafe de Rene with Rene Dupree” podcast.
London said Booker had never apologized for breaking his nose.
As a wrestler, he stated that his goal was to make his moves appear as real as possible.
It was always a struggle for me since I had to lean into it rather than merely throwing it up.
I was going to put it somewhere where you'd get caught if you didn't take it correctly.
So it wasn’t out of malice or anything like that, it wasn’t actually to hurt Paul London or anything like that.
London was still upset with him about the incident.
