Why Mabel?

1995 was a pretty bullshit year for WWF. Despite having legendary performers on the roster (Bret Hart, Undertaker, Shawn Michaels, Razor Ramon, British Bulldog, Lex Luger, Owen Hart) they seemed incapable of producing quality programming. They made a lot of mistakes that year (the 35 minute Royal Rumble match, the entire Wrestlemania 11 card, Diesel's boring championship reign) but - by far - the shittest part of the year was Mabel winning the King Of The Ring tournament.

Does anybody know why Mabel (of all people) won the King of the Ring instead of far better (and more deserving) performers like Shawn Michaels, British Bulldog, Bam Bam Bigelow, Razor Ramon, Undertaker etc. It always seemed like an odd decision. It also made the worst Summerslam main event I've ever seen - Diesel vs Mabel. What did WWF see in Mabel?
