the older brother?[edit]

Booker T's wiki article says that Booker T was the youngest of 8 children, but this artivcle says that stevie ray was the younger brother... what the fuck

No, this article does not say anything about Lane being younger than Booker. This article says "his younger brother Booker T", meaning "Lane's younger brother Booker T", meaning "Lane has a younger brother called Booker T". I think you must have misread the sentence.

Nitpicking[edit]

Probably just me being nitpicky, but the article refers to Booker Huffman as "better known as King Booker." Really, though, isn't he better known as Booker T? He's just most recently known as King Booker. Sorry if this doesn't belong here. It just really bugged me for some reason. 75.206.15.120 06:11, 3 October 2007 (UTC)

Possible return of Harlem Heat for one night only[edit]

Stevie Ray should reunite with Booker T just for one night only as the Harlem Heat in the WWE or in TNA (now that Booker is in there). Just like Triple H and Shawn Michaels did to reunite D-Generation X last summer.

P.S.: Stevie's finisher looked like an inverted mat slam after the double underhook position instead of a facebuster. jlog3000 (talk) 18:44, 27 April 2008 (UTC)

Alleged death[edit]

A cited reference from onlineworldofwrestling had been added indicating that Ray had died of a heart attack. The reference linked said nothing of the sort. Am removing references to Stevie Ray's alleged death unless reliable sources are found. PeteF3 (talk) 22:21, 4 December 2010 (UTC)

Picture[edit]

Here is a good picture of him — Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.125.216.45 (talk) 23:04, 12 January 2012 (UTC)

That image is most likely copyrighted. It would have to be uploaded under a fair-use rationale, but as Huffman is still live it would fail WP:NONFREE, wikipedia's fair-use guidelines and ultimately be deleted; see WP:NFC#UUI. As he's still alive, it is entirely plausible that someone, somewhere will take a free image of him that we can use. NiciVampireHeart 21:16, 14 January 2012 (UTC)

Lash HuffmanStevie Ray – Huffman performed under the name "Stevie Ray" for around a decade, including from 1994 to 2000 when he regularly wrestled on television. This will allow far more direct linking. Stevie Ray is currently a disambiguation page, but as the singer's article is at Stevie Ray Vaughan (rather than, say, Stevie Ray (singer)), I feel that the article on the wrestler could sit at Stevie Ray with a note at the top of the page referring to the singer's page. McPhail (talk) 20:20, 25 July 2013 (UTC)

  • Support as nominator. McPhail (talk) 21:00, 25 July 2013 (UTC)
  • Support -easily best known by the proposed name. oknazevad (talk) 21:36, 25 July 2013 (UTC)
  • Support agree with McPhail, Vaughan point is valid too (article consistently refers to singer by Vaughan surname) Starship.paint (talk) 03:21, 26 July 2013 (UTC)
  • Support Obviously his common name.LM2000 (talk) 05:01, 26 July 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose Outside of wrestling fandom, the average person is far more likely to be looking for Stevie Ray Vaughan when searching with the phrase "Stevie Ray". BTW, that redlink is silly, as SRV is known as far more than just a singer. "God" would be a lot closer to the mark, but we are supposed to be neutral here. RadioKAOS  – Talk to me, Billy 06:12, 26 July 2013 (UTC)
  • Prefer Stevie Ray (wrestler). Vaughan has a somewhat tricky last name, and he's commonly enough just called Stevie Ray (as opposed to his last name, like most people). Sort of like Dimebag. I think the disambig page serves a valuable purpose. If we were talking about Booker T, I'd say the fame was about equal, but the importance of Stevie Ray Vaughan's article far outweighs this ham'n'egger's.

For those of you not familiar with Heenanspeak, that word isn't as ugly as it looks when typed, aesthetically or socially. It only means he wasn't very talented. InedibleHulk (talk) 06:21, July 26, 2013 (UTC)
