WWE Hall of Fame 2019: All Confirmed Inductees
#5. Harlem Heat
Another controversial entry into the WWE Hall of Fame. Why? Because they never competed as a team within the WWE. They were pure WCW. Booker T and his brother Stevie Ray were one of the most decorated WCW tag teams in that company's history.
They were 10-time WCW World Tag Team Champions. On another front, it's hard to find African American Tag Team champions in the history of WWE and WCW.
In response to the criticism of their induction into the Hall of Fame, Booker T had this to say,
“My brother and I, we paved the way for so many other young African-American wrestlers that watched us and said ‘man if Booker T and Stevie Ray can do it, we can do it too’."
While Booker T had success in singles competition in WCW as well as WWE, Stevie Ray faded into the limelight. But WWE History will never forget the boys from Harlem.
