Can You Dig This, Sucka? Booker T is heading to Puyallup!! A second legendary championship wrestler has decided to join the Washington State Summer Con lineup in June.
Booker T is an American retired professional wrestler. He is currently signed to WWE, where he serves as a color commentator on the NXT brand, and is also the owner and founder of the independent promotion Reality of Wrestling. Peers and industry commentators have frequently named Booker as one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time; he was voted WWE’s greatest World Heavyweight Champion in a 2013 viewer poll.
Booker is known for his time in World Championship Wrestling (WCW), the World Wrestling Federation/Entertainment (WWF/E), and Total Nonstop Action Wrestling holding 35 championships between those organizations. He is the most decorated wrestler in WCW history, having held 21 titles, including a record six WCW World Television Championships (along with being the first African American titleholder), and a record 11 WCW World Tag Team Championships: 10 as one half of Harlem Heat with his brother, Lash “Stevie Ray” Huffman in WCW, and one in the WWF with Test. Booker was the final WCW World Heavyweight Champion and WCW United States Heavyweight Champion under the WCW banner.
Booker is an overall six-time world champion in professional wrestling, having won the WCW World Heavyweight Championship five times, and WWE’s World Heavyweight Championship once. With his fifth WCW Championship win, Booker T became the second African-American to win a world championship in WWF/E. He has headlined multiple pay-per-view events for the WWF/E, WCW, and TNA throughout his career.
Booker was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame on April 6, 2013.
