Big John Studd in 89


So BJS wins the rumble in 89 but then doesn't even have his own match at WM5- What gives? And he was gone by June of that year…

Do you think at the time Vince wishes he had someone else win that Rumble? Seems like a wasted opportunity to push someone to the main event?

​Yeah, Studd was not particularly happy with how that went down, either.  It was a big reason why he left.  Definitely in retrospect having him win the Rumble was a huge waste.  Probably should have been Randy Savage winning it and he could have "accidentally" eliminated Hogan at the end.​
