Booker T was asked if he regrets the finish of his angle and WrestleMania match with Triple H
There were heavy racial undertones during that storyline and many fans thought that Booker should have won the feud but that’s not how things played out …. Booker T said the Following
“It was business. Just like until I had Jeff Jarrett on the show and we talked about Bash at the Beach, it was the first time Jeff and I had ever uttered a word about it. It wasn’t about us getting our thrills off of what happened that night. At the end of the night, Jeff got paid. I got paid.
We all went home and hopefully, we lived to do it another day. That’s what for me is what it was all about. Even with the Triple H match, I forgot all about that match after I got the check. I’m serious.
When you get a check big enough to where you can pay for your house, you don’t think about the title or the match or anything like that. You think about, good God, I come from South Park, TX. I’m used to getting checks every two weeks from a job.
When I got into the wrestling business and I started seeing those checks, the last thing I was thinking about was the title other than being the best guy in the locker room so I could keep getting those checks.”
