Wrestling veteran Konnan recently expressed his desire to see Harlem Heat reunite to face The New Day at WWE WrestleMania 39.
Booker T and his brother, Stevie Ray, initially formed Harlem Heat in the late 1980s at Western Wrestling Alliance. They later had a multiple-year run in WCW, where they held the WCW Tag Team Championships ten times. While Booker T later joined WWE, his brother preferred not to do the same. The brothers last reunited in 2015 when they defeated the Heavenly Bodies for the ROW Tag Team Championship on Booker T’s promotion, Reality of Wrestling.
Speaking on Keepin’ It 100, Konnan addressed the possibility of seeing Harlem Heat reunite to face The New Day at WrestleMania 39.
“I would love it. I would love it. I think it would be a lot of fun. (…) The promos would be great. (…) And it works really easy. The New Day would work easy with them. And Booker T can do The Spinaroonie and people pop and the five-time and everything. This match would be dope,” he said. [0:40 – 1:05]
WWE initially banned Booker T from doing The Spinaroonie. Check out the details here.

I’m gonna be in the middle of that ring. I’m gonna be prepared to be in the middle of that ring if that happens. But now, I mean nobody’s talked to me or anything like that about being in the Rumble. There again I don’t have any itch to scratch or anything like that but hey man I’m always down,” he said. [18:50 – 19:23]
