Default Could HBK and Austin have went on to have one of the greatest rivalries...

Had they both wrestled full time during the AE.... some of their interactions before Shawn had to leave were gold and Austin was still to his absolute peak in the ring and out of it in the next year or so.

I know many will say they already did have a great rivalry leading to WM but could it have been up their in the mentionings HBK vs Bret Austin vs Rock etc...

In my mind, they did. Their first match was a set up for the payoff, and their Wrestlemania XIV build up is one of the greatest executed/booked/written build ups ever.

Just because they only had the two matches, doesn't mean it isn't one of the greatest rivalries. Hell, there are a lot of rivalries I wish had stopped at one or two matches.

Yes and no. They could have a great rivalry it would just be spread out over a few year span. I still think WWF would go to Undertaker vs Stone Cold as the premiere rivalry of 1998-99. I still Rock would get the corporate champ role afterwards.

Shawn was to Austin as Bret was to Michaels or as to Hogan was to Warrior. Put him over, get out of the way. Sure it would have been revisited at some point but I wouldn't do it until like late 99, WM 2000 and since Austin got hurt then now you're holding off to the who ran SCSA over storyline.

In my opinion they did have one of the great rivalries of all time. It was beautifully executed and built up perfectly.

It's well known HBK was bitter about Austin taking his spot. A storyline about that leading to a WrestleMania rematch would've drawn big.

Not with HBK as he was back then. He would have just wanted to bury Austin and would have made trouble backstage.
In HBK's mind back then he was the biggest deal the WWF had (he wasn't) and he would have caused trouble and started his unprofessional diva antics both in the ring and backstage. It would have ruined the feud and it wouldn't have been allowed to be the epic feud it could potentially be.
I still think HBK getting injured in 1998 was the best thing that could have happened. That way the likes of Foley, The Rock, Austin, HHH, Kane, Jericho(later on) could reach the level they needed to, help each other along and be the main focus without some pilled up little diva trying to bury them and derail their careers just because he couldn't see past his own ego.

They did have a great rivaly even though it was short but it could have been legendary. If HBK didn't get injured they would've had a storyline feud throughout the year leading to a rematch at Summerslam 98 with HBK winning. Then a tiebreaker match at WM 15 with Austin going over and ending the fued.

No, because eventually HBK's ego at the time would have gotten the better of the booking and made Austin look so weak, he never could have rocketed into the legendary performer we know him as today.

HBK throwing a fit at Austin's championship press conference was real wasn't it?
