Career

Early career

Booker Huffman a single father working at a storage company in Houston, Texas, was looking to make a better life for himself and his young son.[7] His brother Lane suggested that he and Booker check out a new wrestling school being opened, run by former WWF star Ivan Putski, in conjunction with his Western Wrestling Alliance organization.[7] This article does not cite any references or sources. ...

His boss from the storage company loaned him the $3,000 to pay for the wrestling lessons[7] and Booker began training under another former wrestling star Scott Casey, who helped to turn Booker's background in drama and dance into "sports entertainment", teaching the newcomer ring psychology and ring generalship.[2][7] Scott Casey is a former professional wrestler. ...


Eight weeks later, Booker debuted as G.I. Bro on Putski's Western Wrestling Alliance Live! program.[7] The character, a tie-in to the raging Gulf War and the WWF's Sgt. Slaughter angle, would return in years to come when Booker traveled to WCW. Even though the WWA would meet its demise some time later, Booker continued to wrestle on the Texas indy circuit, often with his brother Stevie Ray. They were spotted by Skandor Akbar who hired them to work for the Global Wrestling Federation, where he and Eddie Gilbert were involved.[7] Gilbert, soon to be fired from the GWF, did one thing before he left: he teamed Stevie Ray and Booker T together as the Ebony Experience[7] and quickly rose through the ranks of the GWF tag team division under the guidance of Gary Hart, defeating Skandor Akbar’s “Goodfellows” (Gorgeous" Gary Young and Steve Dane) for the GWF Tag Team Championship on July 31, 1992. Their first run with the GWF tag title lasted only a week before they were defeated by The Blackbirds (”Iceman” King Parsons and Action Jackson).

The second run with the title lasted a bit longer than a week but was ultimately short lived as the Rough Riders (Black Bart and Johnny Mantell) won the gold on October 23. The title loss was forced due to Booker T suffering a knee injury that needed surgery and time off to recover. In early 1993 the Ebony Experience returned to action and started to chase Bad Breed (Axl and Ian Rotten) who had won the titles while Booker T recovered. On February 26 the Ebony Express won their third GWF Tag Team championship, becoming the only team to hold that title 3 times. Their third run with the title proved to be their longest as they held them until May 7 where Guido Falcone and Vito Mussolini (known as the Sicilian Stallions) defeated them for the titles.

In the spring of 1998, Booker crossed paths with Chris Benoit. The two began a series against each other out of mutual respect for one another. However, as the months progressed and the TV title switched hands, tempers flared. Benoit cost Booker the title during a match against Fit Finlay. As spring became summer, it was decided that Booker and Benoit would engage in a "best-of-seven series", on Nitro, Thunder, WCW Saturday Night, and pay-per-views with the winner meeting Fit Finlay for the title. After seven matches and interference from Bret Hart and a returning Stevie Ray, Booker T won the series and, on June 14, regained the Television Championship.[12] He was the first ever African American to hold the WCW World Television Championship and the only one to legitimately win the title (Stevie Ray also held and defended the title while Booker was injured).

Huffman was elevated to the main event in 2000; Lane Huffman has speculated that this could in part have been due to a number of racial discrimination lawsuits filed against WCW.[citation needed] After WCW booker Vince Russo grew disgruntled with Hulk Hogan's politicking, he fired Hogan during the live broadcast of Bash at the Beach 2000 and announced an impromptu match between Jeff Jarrett and Huffman for the World Title. Russo supposedly picked Huffman because he claimed Hogan used his political stroke to keep him out of the Main Event scene.[citation needed] Huffman won the match, in the process becoming the second ever African American champion in WCW, after Ron Simmons.[19] He was then defeated by Kevin Nash on August 28 on Nitro. He regained the title a few weeks later in a steel cage match with Nash at Fall Brawl 2000,[19] but again lost the title, this time to Vince Russo himself in a cage match (Russo was speared out of the cage by Goldberg and won the title), Russo vacated the title and Booker won it for the third time in a San Francisco 49er Box Match against Jeff Jarrett on the October 2 edition of Nitro.
