Stan Hansen and the WCW US Heavyweight Title

Hansen was only four years removed from the AWA World title fiasco, Luger was only three years remove from the shoot incident with Brody and WCW had had a major falling out with Baba in 1989. How did this not turn into a colossal Because WCW™ train wreck? 

Eh, Stan knew the deal going in.  It’s not like anyone was expecting a long term stay for him anyway.
