Booker T's story is tailor-made for A&E's Biography series: A Black man from Houston who went from empty pockets to the heights of professional wrestling. He's also someone who hasn't been covered to death on the WWE Network or the podcast circuit, which meant when it was time for Awesome Truth to pick an episode from A&E's big batch of wrestling content, the choice was easy. Join us as we discuss Harlem Heat's place in the tag team pantheon, the joys of Booker's theme song, and where he ranks as a WCW-to-WWE success story.
