Booker T: WWE WrestleMania 19 And Triple H Was Never Part Of My A&E Biography

"I never gave that story a whole lot of credence or given a lot of thought to me losing that match."

Booker T has moved to dismiss speculation that recorded interviews regarding his feud with Triple H over the World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania 19 were pulled from the recent A&E Biography about his life and career. 

It was noted by some fans that the biography about Booker T, which aired on Sunday, did not make mentioned of his match with Triple H for the Title in 2003. The build-up to that match involved racial elements.

Writer David Dennis Jr, in a since deleted Tweet, says he discussed WrestleMania 19 a lot in his interview for Booker T's biography, but the man himself has said the record straight. 

The WWE Hall Of Famer says he does not worry about the perception of his feud with Triple H, and clarified that the WrestleMania 19 angle was never supposed to be covered in the biography anyway

Speaking on the Hall Of Fame Podcast, he 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."
