The legendary World Championship Wrestling tag-team of Booker and his real-life brother Stevie Ray, real name Lash Huffman, shot to fame in the 1990s.

Now they will be honoured on WrestleMania 35 weekend in New York on April 6 as the fourth inductee in the Hall’s 2019 class.

The team never actually competed in WWE together, but that has not stopped Vince McMahon’s company from recognising their contribution to the business.

Speaking to FTW, Booker T said: “It was surprising, actually, I guess because one reason, my brother and I, we never actually wrestled in the WWE.

“My brother took a step aside at that point in time because he had a daughter, and he wanted to see her grow up and see her go to college. He got a chance to do that. But our career in WCW was awesome.”

Harlem Heat debuted in WCW back in 1993 and won tag-team gold for the first time a year later.

They went on to win the belts a further nine times while both held the World Television Championship as single competitors.
