Booker T knows a thing or two about how to win in the tag team division. He was a record 10-time title holder in the WCW alongside his brother Stevie Ray. He was also three-time champ in the WWE with three different partners, proving that he can build chemistry with almost anybody.
He was even a tag team champ with Scott Steiner in TNA just for the hell of it.
If Booker T is looking for less strenuous wrestling gig due to his age, then forming a tag team is exactly what he needs to do. Although the tag division is just starting to get back on its feet after years of obscurity, there's still plenty of ways to go before it's back to what it once was.
Throwing Booker into the mix would definitely go a long way towards reviving the division.
Who to team him up with you ask? Well, a few popped into my head after looking the choices over.
1) Ezekiel Jackson: Two very different styles, one dominating duo. Jackson isn't really up to much right now, which is a shame considering not too long ago it looked like he was getting a nice push. Jackson is still young though, and if Booker can take him under his wing and show Big Zeke the ropes, it will do wonders for the tag division. Definitely a very good option for both guys.
2) Johnny Curtis: This one may seem a little odd, but if you really think about it, this team could actually be pretty interesting. Curtis has absolutely no guidance currently on Smackdown and he's off to a completely horrible start since winning the fourth season of NXT.
He's gotten practically squashed in every match he's competed in, and his little team with Trent Barreta lasted about a second. Too bad his mentor, R-Truth, had to go all crazy and stuff, since the poor guy still has a guaranteed shot at the tag belts whenever he chooses.
Cue Booker T, a trainer on Tough Enough and someone who knows plenty about how to win in a tag team. It would be a great way for Booker to return, while giving a young guy like Curtis his chance to shine. And who cares if Curtis is currently heel? Booker knows a thing or two about how to play the bad guy too.
3) Goldust: Best. Tag. Team. Ever. We all remember how ridiculous the team of Booker T and Goldust was back in the day. It was stupid, it was senseless, but most of all it was hilarious. Two legends getting back together like the good ol' days would be a win-win for everyone, including the fans. Of course, this all depends on whether or not Goldust plans to return at all, but he's still on the roster so you can't count him out just yet. All I know is, Booker and Goldust can teach most wrestlers in the tag division today about something that many of them don't have. And that's chemistry.
