• “I really wanted to see Booker T beat Triple H” – Former WWE Writer
At WrestleMania 19, Triple H defeated Booker T to retain the World Heavyweight Championship.
This outcome didn’t sit well with some of the fans, and former WWE Writer Brian Gewirtz is one of them.
During an interview on AdFreeShows, Brian had the following to say about this match from 2003:
“I would say, and I’m certainly not the only one that has been advocating for this, but I was a big proponent. I really wanted to see Booker T beat Triple H at WrestleMania 19.
You know that angle, in and of itself, there are a lot of things to dissect and talk about when it comes to that angle.
But as far as the result is concerned, I really wanted to see Booker win, partially from working with him so closely.
Secondly, it seemed to be the right culmination of that angle.
You’re talking about a babyface who is overcoming the odds and, you know, fighting like the big bad of WWE at the time.”
