McMahon didn't refer to the WWF title as a 'trinket' and 'christmas decoration' in press conferences, though. And according to Hart, McMahon planned Hulk Hogan vs Bret Hart in a big match at Summerslam 1993 in which Hogan would pass the title to Hart. Hogan bitched out on the idea because he was scared of the fan reaction. I know that Hart isn't the most reliable source but, based on Hogan's reputation and conduct at the time, I think it's more than plausible.
Whoever is responsible, they totally devalued the championship. With no TV appearances, they basically didn't have a champion or main event angle for three months. And for what? A cheap pop at Wrestlemania.
