As we previously reported here on eWn, writer and professor David Dennis Jr. took to Twitter and posted a series a tweets that said Booker T talked at length about his feud with Triple H going into WrestleMania 19 for the A&E Biography special. In his now-deleted tweets, he said,
“I went in about it for a LONG time. But my ass knew it wasn’t making the final cut so I figured i was gonna get cut out from the whole doc lmao”
According to Booker T himself, he said the story was never expected to be featured in the special. The WWE Hall of Famer said,
”How can it be pulled (when) it never actually got in? To write [that it got pulled], makes it seem like there was a whole lot of meat and potatoes on the bone of the story of Booker T and Triple H.
I never gave that story a whole lot of credence or given a lot of thought to me losing that match. They talk about the story, and I understand that, but I never looked at my career and framed my career around a single match. I got paid more money for that match than I got paid for any match in my life. I’m not gonna complain about that. When people try to make something out of a racial issue between Booker T, Triple H, and WWE, someone is just trying to get some clicks. I just want everyone to know that, that was not what my story was about at the end of the day. My story is not about the dark side of WrestleMania 19. For people to want to make it about that, I get it and understand, but for me personally, that’s not what my career makeup is about.”
