• “I would change the outcome of the WrestleMania match with Triple H” – Hall Of Famer On Regrets He Has In His WWE Career
While speaking on his Hall Of Fame podcast, two time WWE Hall Of Famer Booker T discussed his legendary career and revealed if he would want to change anything in it.
Below is what he said:
“I really don’t think so. I really don’t think there’s anything I would do differently…I would change the outcome of the WrestleMania  match with Triple H. That’s about the only thing I would do differently. Anything other than that right there, I don’t think I would change it at all because getting into the business was all about a means of support for the fam.
It was business. Until I had Jeff Jarrett on the show and we talked about [Booker winning the WCW World Title at] Bash at the Beach, it was the first time that Jeff and I had ever uttered a word about it. It wasn’t about us getting our thrills about what happened that night. At the end of the night, Jeff got paid, I got paid, and we all went home and lived to do it another day.
That’s what, for me, it was all about. Even with the Triple H match – I’ve said this several times, but I forgot all about that match after I got the check. I’m serious, man. When you get a check big enough that can pay for your house, you don’t think about the title or match or anything like that. You think about, ‘Good God!’
When I got in the wrestling business and I started seeing those checks, man, 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 [laughs], that was it.
The two go together. You can’t get the check if you ain’t championship quality. You gotta be the guy they are giving the ball too. It’s like the running back, quarterback, or wide receiver – you ain’t gotta think about how much money that guys are making and what kinda contracts those guys are getting because you know they’re getting paid. It’s the guys playing in the middle, it’s those guys who have to be extraordinary before you start hearing about how much money they’re getting paid.
For me, it was about being the best guy in the locker room and having a title around my waist, because if I had a title around my waist, then that meant I had a certain position in the company and I was gonna have a certain position as far as how much money I was gonna be making. So, at the end of the day, I was strategizing on the checks and the championships. Preferably, the championships and the checks.”
Booker ended by saying that Kofi Kingston becoming the first black person to win the WWE Championship at WrestleMania was much more important than a possible Booker T Title win at WrestleMania 19.
