Booker T is a six-time world champion, having won the WCW World Heavyweight Championship five times (four times in WCW, and once in the WWF) and WWE's World Heavyweight Championship once. He is the first non-mixed race African American to become a world champion in WWE, and was voted the greatest World Heavyweight Champion in a WWE viewer poll.
Booker is a 15-time world tag team champion between WCW (10 times), WWF/E (four times), and TNA (once). Additionally, he was the winner of the King of the Ring tournament in 2006, the sixteenth Triple Crown Champion, and the ninth Grand Slam Champion in WWE history.
As the eleventh Triple Crown Champion in WCW history, Booker is one of five men in history to achieve both the WWE and WCW Triple Crowns. In a recent interview, Booker T commented on withdrawal from Starrcast III: “I want to set the record straight, man, right here because there have been a lotta falsehoods out there — let’s not say falsehoods.
It’s just been some straight-up lies going around out there, and I want to set the record straight, especially with the Starrcast event. The way we should do this, let’s start it in chronological order. You and I, we had a chance to go to the last Starrcast, and we had a great time out in Vegas.
Sharmell and I, we got the chance to see some Cirque du Soleil. O was awesome. I had a great time out there there. The fans, man. The fans were really, really awesome as well. It was a great experience for me."
