Sharmell broke into pro wrestling as one of the Nitro Girls in the 1990s. She's best known for managing her husband Booker T in WWE and TNA Wrestling. After Booker T won the 2006 King of the Ring tournament, Sharmell became Queen Sharmell in WWE.

Sharmell and Booker T currently run their Reality of Wrestling training school and promotion.

This year's WWE Hall of Fame ceremony is taking place after SmackDown at the American Airlines Center in Dallas on Friday, April 1. The ceremony will air live on Peacock/WWE Network.
