Paid Members air_raid Posted September 17, 2020 Paid Members Share Posted September 17, 2020 Flair vs Warrior for the belt would have been far more likely for WrestleMania than at the Rumble. I’d imagine Flair might have had one final match with Savage at the Rumble as a decisive end to their run (Flair had already transitioned to Warrior on the houses while Savage was doing revenge matches with Razor) as Vince was getting ready to phase out Macho Man as a TV regular. If Warrior was still there I’m 50/50 as to whether Hogan comes back. On the one hand they’d brought Warrior back to plug the gap, but Hogans absence was only ever meant to be temporary while his image recovered from steroids/Arsenio. So with business struggling it’s more likely he’d have been back at some point sooner rather than later. As for Bret.... he’d have had another match with Shawn at Survivors not for the I title as Shawn wouldn’t have won it yet. If Warriors still around we have to assume he didn’t grass Smithers in (which got them both sacked) so Survivors still has Bulldog v Mountie for the I title. Presumably Shawn takes the belt from Smithers soon after, Bret probably continues his aborted run with Papa Shango (whose “curse” was going to be alluded to being partially responsible for his loss to the Bulldog). It’s theoretical that Shawn vs Bret for the I title might have happened at Mania with Bret doing the honours, when he was told the day of This Tuesday In Texas that he’d end up losing the I title to Shawn he says he was happy for Shawn, he’d have no problem, he saw Shawn as the future, he was proud they’d come through and elevated themselves beyond tag teams together. Funny how things change. Also in a world where Warrior stays, it’s possible Hennig isn’t coaxed back into the ring so somebody else has to be the first feud for Lex Luger. Which also could have been Bret, just like they went on the houses straight after Mania anyway. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
