Booker T wants to show some love to Sherri Martel.
Sherri is one of the most respected managers in history enjoying runs with the likes of Shawn Michaels, Ric Flair, Randy Savage, and more. In the mid-90s, she linked up with Harlem Heat (Booker T & Stevie Ray) and brought them to new heights as a team.
Speaking on Battleground Wrestling Podcast, Booker T revealed that he plans on paying tribute to Sherri in his promotion Reality of Wrestling.
"Sherri was definitely well before her time as far as females in professional wrestling, being able to go out there and doing it the way she did. One that would throw caution to the wind. She was really great at psychology as well. She was a real worker. For myself, I always put her on a pedestal just because she was Harlem Heat's 'legitimizer.' I don't think we would have been what we were and who we were without Sister Sherri Being right there in the front. So many times, we tore it up and left it in chaos, people just wanted to kill us. So many great times. She would definitely be proud of the groundwork she put down as far as what we're seeing right now with the ladies going out there with the way they are. I'm definitely going to create a Sherri Martel Classic with Reality of Wrestling sometime very soon," said Booker.
It is unknown when the Sherri Martel Classic will come to fruition.
Reality of Wrestling is set to debut in Las Vegas on November 19. Fans can find more information by clicking here.
