The 50 greatest stars in WCW history

#8 Booker T

Booker T was arguably the most decorated Superstar in WCW. His tenure in the Atlanta-based organization began in 1993 and lasted until WCW’s demise in 2001, making him one of the few major competitors that never left the promotion during the Monday Night Wars. His prestigious career began as a member of Harlem Heat alongside his brother, Stevie Ray. One of the top tag teams in history, the duo held the WCW Tag Team Champions a record 10 times.

While Stevie Ray recovered from an injury, Booker T began his successful career as a singles competitor. Collecting the Television Championship, U.S. Championship, and the WCW World Championship, Booker became one of a select few who achieved the Triple Crown in WCW. To round out his history making career, Booker T became the second African-American to hold the prestigious World Heavyweight Championship after Ron Simmons. There is no doubt that Booker T belongs amongst the greats of WCW. Now can you dig that, sucka? — G.S.
