Booker T smiles at the vision of his beautiful bride being escorted down the aisle. It was a chance month-and-half-long assignment at the 2000 Los Angeles wrestling competition “Ready to Rumble” with Sharmell that made the otherwise all-work-no-play wrestler see the light.

“I love that she’s kind of like me—down to earth and regular,” he says.
