Harlem Heat will join Torrie Wilson, Billy Gunn, Sean Waltman, Chyna, Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Road Dogg, & the Honkey Tonk Man as this year’s inductees into the WWE Hall of Fame.
Several WWE Superstars and pro-wrestlers have reacted to the news.
Triple H had the following to say regarding the legendary WCW team:
Definitively one of the most dominating teams in history, #HarlemHeat broke down barriers and served as the standard-bearers of tag team wrestling in #WCW. Congratulations to @BookerT5x and @RealStevieRay. #WWEHOF pic.twitter.com/wfnEKA8VWM

Goldust and Booker T
Booker T and Goldust won the WWE tag team championships at Armageddon in 2002. They won a 4-way elimination match which also featured the Dudley Boyz, Lance Storm & William Regal, and Chris Jericho & Christian. They would only hold the titles for 3 weeks, however.
Trish Stratus noted that she and Booker T worked together on Tough Enough:
