For the first time in nearly three decades, a weekly professional wrestling program originating from Houston will hit the airwaves when Reality of Wrestling on The KUBE debuts late night Saturday, Feb. 1.
Reality of Wrestling is a Houston-based sports entertainment promotion owned and operated by 2013 WWE Hall of Fame inductee Booker T. Huffman and his wife Sharmell. The KUBE is available over the air (OTA) on channel 57.1 and on all cable and satellite providers in the Houston Metro area.
For the past eight years, the promotion has held monthly live events in Pasadena and Clear Lake City. Since 2012, the promotion has produced a weekly half-hour show on YouTube. Expanding to one hour for local television, Reality of Wrestling on The KUBE will entertain and excite fans with an emphasis on in-ring-action, storyline-driven content and behind-the-scenes reality segments. The program will give in-ring performers (many of whom train at Huffman’s Wrestling Xercise Fitness (WXF) wrestling school) the perfect launching pad to further their careers. The show will air in high definition (where available).
“We are going to be bringing you some of the finest up-and-coming stars in the Texas area,” Huffman said in an announcement made online at www.realityofwrestling.com. “These are young men and young women looking to fulfill their dreams, such as I did once upon a time, as well as entertain you in the process.”
Reality of Wrestling on The KUBE debuts Saturday, Feb. 1, from 2-3 a.m. (late night Saturday).
Known as the “five-time champion,” Booker T has thrilled fans worldwide throughout a career that began in 1990 in the Bayou City. Booker has held championships as a singles competitor in WCW and WWE, and held tag team championships in the GWF and WCW while competing as the team Harlem Heat with his brother Stevie Ray. Known as one of the most entertaining superstars to step foot in the ring, Booker was inducted to the WWE Hall of Fame in April 2013. He currently appears on WWE programming, serving as a commentator and host for various events.
Sharmell won the 1991 Miss Black America pageant (Miss Black Indiana) and began a career as a professional dancer, touring with hip hop and R&B acts including the James Brown Band. She later joined WCW as a member of the Nitro Girls dance team, and eventually began a career as an in-ring competitor. She later became a ringside valet for Booker T, and is known for her role as “Queen Sharmell” during Booker’s reign as “King Booker” in WWE.
