Wcw ’91 questions

Why go from Doom to the freebirds to the steiners instead of just going directly doom to steiners considering their capital combat match was pretty good?

Was Harley Race getting involved in Luger's title match a last minute idea or was it the plan even if it had been Luger beating Flair?

1.  Because WCW. 
2. It was the plan all along, yes.  They wanted Luger to replace Flair as top heel either way.
