They were short on heels. Not sure why didn't push Jeff Jarrett. Now I always saw Jarrett a midcard guy but given the state of the roster, he wouldve been a better choice than Mabel.

Rather than trying to elevate a completely useless nobody like Mabel, they should've turned Razor Ramon into a heel again. Or, Bam Bam Bigelow - he was convincing, talented and was a really strong heel.

I think Vince was trying to create another King Kong Bundy in Mabel. Can't blame him for trying. Not every move is a winner.

Diesel was the champion and Vince wanted a big guy as a believable threat.

Yeah, Mabel winning the KOTR was a questionable move. I wonder if Mabel was a last minute win as Razor Ramon had a rib injury at the time and could have been a believable King.
The plan from what I understand was for Mabel to get one of the greatest rubs in WWF history by defeating three of their biggest stars in one night: Undertaker, Michaels, and Ramon so unfortunately, The Bad Guy would've been jobbed out in the finals again.

I suppose Mabel was Vince's choice as a MONSTER heel after Yokozuna and before Vader. It just didn't work out, sadly Vader's WWE run didn't work out either.

Hi sorry

I actually register as i have been watching 1998 wwe Raw i love classic stuff anyway my question

i understand all those above as to why the hell he was pushed

my question why after the push was he eventually fired?

and why did he then come back for 1 night only in 98 on shamrock? he makes a random come back looking huge does a MASSIVE 1 min job to shamrock and then is gone for another half a year.

why did they get rid bring him back and get rid? im very curious?

His push really shows how out of touch Vince was at that point. He wanted to recreate a big monster heel like Yokozuna and King Kong Bundy, but the fans were sick of it. Not to mention Diesel was drawing really badly as the WWF Champ and was obviously a very limited worker so this was destined to fail. They should have done HBK as the KOTR winner and then Diesel/HBK resulting in an HBK win. Or turn Ramon, I don't care. Anything would have been better than this.

As people have said, there were too many faces in that time. Stupid booking, if you're asking me.

As for Mabel, well, they needed someone to make it look like Diesel is going to lose. That's why Nash sucked as a champion. He can't be the underdog. He's Kevin Freakin' Nash! A heel run with the belt would've worked.

Also, Mabel said that he knew in January that he will be the king.
