Default Booker T finished?

I was reading recently that Booker T said that he'd probably only be in the WWE for a couple of years due to a nagging spinal injury that hasn't been able to fully heal. He has worked through it for the better part of the past few years but it now seems to have gotten the better of him, leading to a surprising I-C title switch off-camera at a house show.

Word is, and this could be true or false, that Booker was hurting and the plan was to have him drop the belt on camera on Raw or possibly a PPV, but was in such poor condition after the Australian tour that he was hardly able to perform, thus the off-camera switch.

There seems to be a chance that Booker could decide to cut his WWE run short due to this injury, especially now that it has worsened, and that his career is over. As it is, Booker stands to miss 8+ months with this injury, at which time he will likely either attempt a return, or hang up the boots.

If it's true that Book was only planning to be in WWE for a couple of years to begin with, it stands to reason that we may have seen the last of Booker T.

I hope not.

If anyone knows anything more, please post it and let us know.

Sad, its just too damn bad when a guy who can both be an awesome wrestler and awesome talent gets his in-ring career cut down to a shorter run, especially if he could have had a great run as a world champ. but unfortunently the odds of that happening now have gotten even lower.

You know, I don't see much happening with Booker again. He might be able to come back and work one last good fued, but he's pretty much done with. Look at how hard it is for the guys with back problems allready. HBK works one match a year, Austin can't wreslte, but Booker might not be a big enough star to stay on screen in a non wrestling role, but who knows what will happen. I hope he comes through ok and we see him in the ring again.

Goddamn you fucking WWE. You fucking Idiots prive a great wrestler of a decent title and title run while with WWE. Why cause he had 5 times in WCW? Or is WWE really racist unless its with the Rock. Fucking Booker T was worthy of the belt when he fueded with HHH.....but we all know how that turned out. Booker had a re instated IC belt what? A couple of days after being humiliated a few times before he even got it. Get well Booker T. Even though your a convicted felon.......your a great wrestler.

Update: During the Christian / RVD match on Raw, J.R. sent his best wishes out to Booker T and said that he hopes to see Booker back in a few weeks. Maybe the injury is not as serious as originally thought, or perhaps it's just being downplayed. Either way, it seems that there is reason to hope Booker might return, and it's nice to know the WWE isn't ready to write him off just yet.

Even when healthy, Booker was probably the most mis-used wrestler in all of WWE. And no, I don't count A-Train, whose role is so minor. If all he's going to get is near-misses for title shots, he's better off retiring to heal his back. He doesn't need the frustration.
