Launching herself into a successful career at a young age, Sharmell Sullivan-Huffman saw early success as a pageant queen when she won Miss Black America. Soon after she would rise even higher as a backup dancer for legendary musical acts like James Brown. After the world of pro wrestling caught her eye, Sharmell would join WCW's Nitro Girl dance troupe under the name Storm, before being trained as a wrestler herself. Her wrestling career would continue on as she took on opponents such as Tammy Lynn Sytch and Major Gunns (Tylene Buck). Her career would not be contained to inside the ropes as Sharmell would also valet the likes of Kwee Wee and Prince Iaukea before leaving the company for WWE and OVW (Ohio Valley Wrestling). Sharmell would soon take her place on the throne of professional wrestling along with her husband Booker T in both WWE and TNA (Impact Wrestling), being involved in angles with greats such as Bobby Roode, Samoa Joe and Kurt Angle plus The Main Event Mafia.
