Re: A Stone Cold vs. Ken Shamrock 1998 face vs face feud
For sure shamrock's promos had to be short and sweet. They would have had to book the feud centred around fighting, ie not the attitude era storyline driven programs we were getting.
It could fall within the McMahon vs Austin storyline. But have shamrock feud with Austin in an old school who's the tougher SOB kind of feud culminating in a hand shake and establishing shamrock as a main eventer.
Come to think of it.. How was sabu vs taz built up? Wasn't it for almost a year with taz cutting all the promos and sabu not saying anything? Maybe such a formula could have worked with Shamrock constantly staring down Austin? (Of course you would have to build shamrock up as a monster before beginning the program).
