Yes, I know - an oldie.
I was reading the comments on wrestlezone.com, the article was about Buff Bagwell's retirement tour. And it got me thinking as a lot of people were saying that Booker T was the only one that was not sabotaged by the WWE (although some arguments can be made for that - giving the main event of RAW to Booker T and Buff Bagwell didn't seem like a really great option).
Even today, there's still a lot of controversy about the Booker T/Triple H match that took place at Wrestlemania 19 with a lot of people thinking that Booker T should have walked out of the champion due to the way that they built up the story. A lot more people seem to slam Triple H's politics etc as the reason Booker T did not walk out with the Championship as well as the ending that took forever, but if anything, it would have been Vince McMahon that would have done that - Booker T, the first WCW wrestler to really get over in WWE winning a big championship match at Wrestlemania? I don't think McMahon would have gone for that one.
If Triple H vs Sting was considered the final nail in the coffin of WCW vs WWF, am I wrong in assuming that Triple H vs Booker T was the first?
