Booker T Comments On Sharmell's WWE Hall Of Fame Induction

Booker T has given his thoughts on his wife Sharmell's Hall of Fame induction

Booker T has commented on the news of his wife being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame class of 2022. 

Speaking on his The Hall of Fame podcast, Booker - himself a two-time WWE Hall of Famer - said: 

"I'm happy and I'm proud to see my queen take her place inside the Hall of Fame. I've always said it many times that Sharmell didn’t get the recognition that a lot of the girls have always got, but this is the ultimate recognition. It's the ultimate stamp of approval saying we really appreciate everything that you've done for the business as well as for this company". 

"Sharmell was one to one of Vince’s favorites. I mean, he definitely always loved Sharmell's work. Everybody always loved Sharmell for what she brought to the table more than anything. She's always been genuine about this thing as well. It's no play acting with Sharmell".

"I remember back in the day, that female locker room was chaotic. I mean, those women over there, it was just going crazy, man, like what the hell is going on? Sharmell was like the locker room enforcer".

"But, she's made her mark, all the way from making her way into WCW as a Nitro Girl, the company going under, and her going to OVW. A lot of people don't realise it, but Sharmell came out of the same class with Batista, Randy Orton, Brock, John Cena, and Shelton".

"The wrestling side didn't turn out for her because she blew her knee out down there training in the WWE, OVW. Then, of course, the creation of King Booker. I tell people all the time that it was my best run. That was my most fun run in the business. None of it ever would have happened if it wasn't for Sharmell, because the King of the Ring tournament was not built for me to become the greatest king in the history of the King of the Ring tournament. It wasn't built for that at all".

"It was built around Sharmell, and I had a moment there, and I say, man, let me try to see if I can make this moment something special at the same time. But that whole thing, all of the action figures that's created around Booker T, none of that would have happened as far as the King Booker action figures would have happened if it wasn't for Queen Sharmell. I'm just happy that she's getting her recognition and her just due, finally. It's the ultimate recognition taking her place inside the Hall of Fame right next to her king, so it's going to be an awesome, awesome night".

Booker will induct Sharmell during the ceremony, which takes place on April 1 and will air on the WWE Network immediately following the airing of SmackDown.
