Is this really the official story? I wonder why they didn't just have HHH get the pinfall on Mankind during the triple threat. Austin would've still looked strong since he didn't eat the pinfall, and it wouldnt have changed a damn thing in the storyline. Always wondered why they gave Mankind a 1 day title reign..
