Booker T posted the following statement on the official Legends of Wrestling Fanfest website:
A few days ago I sent a letter to the wrestling world explaining my anger and remorse at how I felt the WWE handled the situation regarding their abrupt pulling of several invited guests to the Booker T. Legends of Wrestling Fanfest. Within minutes of the letter being posted, we received hundreds and hundreds of e-mails showing your support of the Fanfest. It appears that the WWE got the message as well, as they have since allowed a true living legend Jimmy "The Mouth of the South" Hart to rejoin the Booker T. Fanfest on tomorrow, Friday, April 3, 2009 here in Houston, Texas. This action restores my faith in the WWE and I'm grateful that they reconsidered. I want to thank everyone that has supported me and remember, if you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything. Thanks again, and I'll see you at the Fanfest!
Note from Ryan Clark: WWE has not been a big fan of Jimmy Hart since the CCW days. My question is - what about the rest of the talent? Hart comes as no surprise.
