All Hail King Booker! That had a certain ring to it. A man is standing inside the middle of a wrestling ring, wrapped in a cape, sporting a crown on top of his head, with a septor in one hand, and World Championship in the other. Thousands of fans are on their feet cheering, showering this great King with a huge applause, letting him know how much they appreciate his work. Just as the man is about to turn, and his face be revealed, a scream jerks the scene out of focus. "Booker! Get your butt out of bed before you are late for school again!" It is the first of March 1983, and a seventeen year old young man, from Houston, Texas, by the name of Booker Huffman, is awaken from a wonderful dream by his mother, warning him that he can't afford to miss school again, or he will be in big trouble. Booker gets himself together and heads out the door on the way to school, and spends another beautiful Spring day in Texas, sitting in a classroom, thinking about the wonderful dream that he had the night before. As school lets out, and Booker starts walking home, he lets the winds take him where they may, and the next thing he knows, he is standing in the front of a local gym about a mile away from his house. This place is no foreign land to him, as he knows that this is where his older brother Lane began training to be a wrestler less than a year ago. Booker wanders inside the building to find his older brother, who recently began wrestling in the Houston wrestling scene as Stevie Ray, is standing in the ring, working on his in ring skills, hoping to make the jump to a nationally recognized promotion in the near future. Booker goes up to his brother and the two start wrestling around in the ring for fun, when Booker notices that he has a natural knack for the ring. After the workout, the two brothers begin talking about how their days were, when Booker tells Lane that he had a horrible day in school, and could think of a million things better he could be doing with his time. Lane then reveals that he believes that his brother is a natural in the ring, and could eventually make it in the business. Booker then reveals to his brother the dream that he had last night, and tells him he believes that he saw himself standing in the ring as World Champion, and tells Lane that he has made the decision to drop out of high school to try to break into the wrestling business full time, and realize his dream. Booker headed back home, confident in his decision to become a full time wrestler, and sat down to a great meal. After dinner his mother informed him that it was homework time, then Booker knew he had to break the news to her. He told her of his dream, and his choice to become a full time grappler, and his mother had a look of shock. She informed her son that she will have no son of her's living under her roof drop out of high school to chase dreams of all things, wrestling. It was then that Booker knew that he had to make a life-altering choice, to get an education, and get a boring job somewhere, or go out into the real world, and make a name for himself inside the ring. Booker decided to chase his dream, and pave his own path, [b]The Rise to Royalty.[/b] Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
