HOUSTON -- WWE wrestler Booker T. Huffman visited his childhood neighborhood in southeast Houston on Friday afternoon and posed for pictures with excited fans.

He visited the house where he grew up in South Park. His dad died of a stroke when he was a baby and his mother died when he was 13. He was the youngest of eight children.

“I can actually picture myself as a little boy,” Hoffman said.

The famous wrestler ended up in prison as a young man and vowed to never go back. Now he visits inmates in prison to motivate them.

Nowadays, Huffman said his focus is on his family and giving back.
