Questions about The Giant in WCW

> When the Giant 1st appeared at Slamboree 1995, was the plan all along for him to win the WCW Title from Hogan at Halloween Havoc? Did WCW Plan that far ahead? Should they have stuck with him instead of vacating the title for World War 3?

No, the plan wasn’t for him to get the belt, they just kind of fell ass-backwards into that idea because they wanted it vacant for November. They definitely weren’t booking that far ahead. And Savage ended up drawing with Flair anyway.

> Also in 1996 he was supposed to face Ric Flair for the US Title, but Flair got hurt and the US Title was vacated. Would the Giant have won the US Title from Flair, and how would that have affected his being kicked out of the NWO at the end of the year?

I don’t see a huge distinction between carrying the belt around for months and actually being champion.
