Robert Booker Tio Huffman, aka Booker T, is an American professional wrestling promoter, color commentator, and professional wrestler who signed with WWE. He is also the owner and founder of the independent promotion Reality of Wrestling (ROW) in Texas City, Texas.


Booker is best known for his time in World Championship Wrestling (WCW), the World Wrestling Federation/Entertainment (WWF/E), and Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA), 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 eleven WCW World Tag Team Championships: ten as one-half of Harlem Heat with his brother, Lash "Stevie Ray" Huffman in WCW (most reigns within that company), and one in the WWF with Test. WWE recognized Harlem Heat as being – along with The Steiner Brothers – WCW's greatest-ever tag team. Booker was the final WCW World Heavyweight Champion and WCW United States Heavyweight Champion under the WCW banner; industry veteran John Layfield described him as "the best acquisition that WWE got when they bought WCW."


Booker is a six-time world champion, having won the WCW World Heavyweight Championship five times (four times in WCW and once in the WWF) and WWE's World Heavyweight Championship once. He is the first non-mixed-race African American to become a world champion in WWE and was voted the most remarkable World Heavyweight Champion in a WWE viewer poll. Booker is a 15-time world tag team champion between WCW (10 times), WWF/E (four times), and TNA (once). He also won the King of the Ring tournament in 2006, was the sixteenth Triple Crown Champion, and was the ninth Grand Slam Champion in WWE history. As the eleventh Triple Crown Champion in WCW history, Booker is one of five men to achieve both the WWE and WCW Triple Crowns. Longtime wrestler Kurt Angle said of Booker: "He's done it all... he legitimately is one of the top five best of all time." Booker was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame on April 6, 2013, by his brother, Lash. Source.
