Re: Owen Hart wins WWF title
I never understood why they went with Backlund taking the title and losing to Diesel. The whole thing lacked something that having Owen in the slot, trained by Backlund would have made better. I guess it was the whole "Bret wanting an excuse to job" thing so they had to do the stupid towel stuff. Owen beats Bret at SS, a week later on RAW, Diesel beats Owen in 8 seconds... a (much brighter) star is born.
