Re: Vince screwed up Wrestlemaina 8
I'm a big fan of WrestleMania 8 and how it turned out. Hogan/Flair should have headlined it, with all the cards being in place, but I can see the reasons why they didn't do it. Hogan was leaving, so he couldn't have won (lest another title vacancy just after the last time he vacated it) and everything was building to Flair losing the belt to a major babyface at the event, and Savage was due for another run especially with Warrior out.
Still, the shake-up in the card was for the best as it led to a great SummerSlam '92, an energetic Warrior return, two great matches (Piper/Hart and Flair/Savage), and also the return of LOD after a brief absence. By the end of the year, the WWF would look completely different.
