I just watched the Shockmaster debacle again, and something dawned on me; if everything went fine and the storm trooper helmet didn't fall off, what was he going to wear on his head when he wrestled? He obviously couldn't wear the helmet. Was he gonna go with just a mask, or would they just have ended up revealing his face before War Games?
I don't think his identity was intended to be any big secret. He was gonna take off the helmet and be Fred Ottman as far as I know. It wasn't a really well thought out storyline or anything.
