Its just because some smarks have an agenda against Triple H. These people want to see Triple H lose every match.

Booker-T should've never been in that match against Triple H in the first place.

Kane was much hotter at that time and Kane should've wrestled Triple H for the World title at Wrestlemania XIX. Booker-T was a comedy jobber with Goldust and out of nowhere he was in one of the main-events of Wrestlemania with the World Heavyweight Champion.
thank you. So sick of HHH always getting the short end of the stick on here

Re: Why do fans begrudge HHH for not losing to Booker T?

[QUOTE=TheShieldSuck;54075866]At WM 19?

Is it because he is/was black? I mean Booker had little momentum going into WM19. He didnt speak much. Just kinda stared. They probably realised this and so HHH did the implied racism thing to gain heat but Booker was obviously there to be slain by HHH.

Now was Booker really that special? I liked him duing the AE but aside from the spianroony and his entrance theme he lacked everywhere else. The Booket was a tame finisher. Not as bad as the walls of Jericho but nothing special. His wrestling ability was VERY limited. His moveset revolved around irish whips and spin kicks with little psychology and sometimes little subtly. Take his match with Buff Bagwell. Full of irish whips and obvious signals to Buff that hes doing a spin kick.))))

You clearly didn't watch that feud in real time, you're obviously defending Triple h's sins because "NXT". Booker was red hot during That time. And Triple h has buried more than his share. Booker is not the only one.

You say Booker only does spin kicks? But what does triple h do that's so special? Brawling is not wrestling. Triple h had three wrestling moves in his prime, while booker had several.

Triple h is not a sainthood for nxt. He doesn't do anything. The wrestlers there make it all happen. Not egomaniac Hunter.

It was a huge mistake having a guy like Booker T losing that way. Simple as that.

Re: Why do fans begrudge HHH for not losing to Booker T?

He wasn't going to win the belt anyway, and even if he did, people would still complain and he would of ended up dropping the title back to Triple H. Smarks back then had an agenda against Triple H. The same way that smarks have one against John Cena and Roman Reigns, yet they wouldn't mind if their favorites were the champion going into Wrestlemania 19 and they retained against Booker T.

I'm for as many people getting over as possible, it would improve the show and the more over people there are, the more avenues there are to push new talent, yes, your favourites are more likely to get pushed if there are more over people to feud with.

The Rock wanted to put over Booker T before Wrestlemania so Booker would look good going into the match but Triple H wanted to bury him Booker so Rock put over The Hurricane instead.

Triple H ego bullshit
100% This. Good post.

BTW, up until that point HHH was the only heel to ever leave Wrestlemania as the world champion and that was the 2nd time that he did it. It was a story built to have Booker go over and instead (story-wise) the racist guy came out on top.

This, man.

Also, people who compare Rock's victory with this are totally missing the point.



All Time Favorites: "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, Bret Hart, Randy Savage, Sting , Rick Rude, & Ric Flair. AJ Styles will be added when retired.

They still do it now, it's like they can't let it, go. There's nothing wrong with putting a WCW guy over now, we know who won the whole thing. Vince just likes to stroke his own ego until its buried in our brains!
