Vader in 1996

Scott,

If the plan originally (rumored), was for Vader to beat HBK at Summerslam for the title, was the next step still Sid winning at Survivor Series? Or who was next after Vader? Back to HBK? Or Joe Gomez? Just curious!

Vader was supposed to be Sid. He wasn’t going to win at SummerSlam, but he was going to be the guy to beat Shawn at Survivor Series, which is why the December show was It’s Time. And then he’d lose back to Shawn at the Rumble.
