WWE Hall Of Famer Booker T is a well-known veteran in the pro wrestling world as he made a name for himself in WCW before making his way to WWE. One of the most controversial aspects of his career in WWE featured his WrestleMania XIX storyline with Triple H.

Many called out the storyline for having racist undertones and it seems the storyline was completely removed from WWE and A&E’s Biography series featuring Booker T. David Dennis Jr had earlier stated there were plans to include the Triple H feud in the documentary but it didn’t make the final cut.

While speaking on his Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T shot down Dennis Jr’s claim report about the A&E Biography series intentionally not including the WrestleMania XIX feud between him and Triple H.

Booker T stated that the WrestleMania XIX feud wasn’t even supposed to be in the series in the first place, so there wasn’t even a possibility of it being cut. Booker T also denied that his feud with Triple H had racial issues.

“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.”

Triple H would defeat Booker T at WrestleMania XIX and retain the World Heavyweight Title, which many fans didn’t like whatsoever. Booker T would eventually win the Title under his King Booker gimmick.
