Bret doesn’t get "screwed" and is there to put over Austin at mania. Where does Bret go from there?
I’m assuming a couple of months of rematches, but Bret was wanting a reduced role anyway. I would think he would put Austin over a few times and then wrestle Ken Shamrock or do a team with Owen or something.
What is Shawn’s role at that event?
I could see him putting over HHH, actually. That’d be a hell of a triple main event.
Bret’s gone and HBK vs Austin is penciled in. Shawn’s back is even more messed up that eh 100% can’t go. Who then puts Austin over at mania?
Choices are getting kinda thin at that point. Hell, they barely were able to come up with a heel challenger for Austin after he won the title! I’m honestly not sure if they even had a backup plan if Shawn couldn’t go. Shamrock? Undertaker?
