They were waiting for the bad press to blow over and it keeps getting badder for them.
So according to Rocky canon Ivan Drago did win the Heavyweight title and retire undefeated, (as a pro. His match with Rocky was, of course, an exhibition,) but whatever happened to Clubber Lang? As champion wouldn't he have been entitled to a rematch and wouldn't
the Rocky/Clubber rubber match have made all the millions?
For that matter what about Tommy "the machine" Gunn? I mean he was still champion even though Rocky beat him up.
He’d probably never go for it, but maybe HHH and Stephanie could just announce it on Raw without telling him and then he has to do it.
Gotta be better than trusting Sid to be the headliner and risking him bailing for an April softball game, right?
