That probably has an awful lot to do with it, to be honest. Maybe Hogan was resentful about the fact that his era in the WWF was clearly coming to an end and in his uniquely egotistical and jealous way, he trashed the company title out of spite.

Hogan suggests "surprising" the audience by challenging Yoko immediately afterward and beating him to win the WWE Title. Vince McMahon agees. Hogan beats Yoko to regain the title.
I can't believe that McMahon was stupid enough to believe that bullshit. Even if the fans had gone home disappointed about Yokozuna taking the title, a storyline involving Bret chasing Yokozuna for the title would have been better than not having a Champion at all.

I remember WWF Magazine running an article in the summer of 1993 comparing Bret Hart to Hulk Hogan and asking the question 'who would win?' It all seemed to be building towards a Summerslam match between the two.
