Elizabeth At Wrestlemania VIII

While down the Network rabbit hole, I was watching Wrestlemania VIII and couldn't understand why so many company officials (including a young Shane-o-Mac) were trying to stop Elizabeth from coming down to the ring late in the Flair-Savage match.  I remembered the pictures angle, but even if Savage had said he didn't want Elizabeth down there, why would all of the suits try to stop her if she just chose to come down there?

​Because Flair's pictures were ACTUALLY of Savage and a young Stephanie McMahon in compromising position and they were afraid Liz was going to react badly to that?​
