1. Would have made no sense since Vince wanted Bret to loose the title, due to the WCW situation.
2. No, due to the WCW situation.
3. To let WCW announce Bret as the WWF Champion? Hell no.
4. Most likely but still bad for business, since Shawn vs Bret was the biggest storyline around that time and was already announced.

I am a huge Bret mark, but if I were in Vince's shoes I would have done the exact same thing, for the business.
It is really unfortunate for Bret and from a personal point of view unbearable but from a business standpoint (vinces view) it makes sense the way it happened.

Harry Callahan: I know what you're thinking. "Did he fire six shots or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?
