Booker T announced for the WWE Hall of Fame class of 2013

The latest person to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame class of 2013 is the one and only Booker T! The announcement came yesterday during the live Monday Night RAW.

Booker T made his professional wrestling debut in 1989 and his and his brother’s hiring at the Global Wrestling Federation put them on the map. In 1993, Booker T and his brother moved to WCW as the Harlem Heat and continued as a tag team until he transitioned to a singles wrestler in 1997.

In 2000, he became the second African American WCW champion after defeating Jeff Jarrett to win the World title and won that title again on three other occasions while in WCW.

In 2001, he moved to WWE after WCW was purchased by Vince McMahon and won the Intercontinental, U.S., King of the Ring, and World Heavyweight title until he left for TNA in 2007.

In 2011 he returned to WWE to a big pop at the Royal Rumble and then moved to color commentary. Last year he was announced as the General Manager of Smackdown.
