I totally marked out when Sid beat Shawn at Survivors 96 for the belt. I despised HBK back then.
Had the match been against someone else then maybe at a push a claim could be made for Shawn Michaels wanting the win back but Scott Hall was actually Shawn Michaels best friend back then not Kevin Nash as many think. Shawn Michaels and Scott Hall went back years from their days in AWA whilst Triple H and Sean Waltman were best friends as they were the two youngest whilst Kevin Nash was close friends with everyone. Even if Shawn Michaels was as big of a prick as some say back then demanding his feud and match with Sid Vicious be scrapped so he can get his win back against Scott Hall is pushing it a bit far.

Buyrates weren't great at the time and Diesel's reign was a flop. Probably didn't have faith in Mable and decided to book the second televised ladder match to attract buys.

As did most of us who weren't under the age of ten, and/or female fans! He never got true cena heat from the 18-35 male crowd, but he was booed quite often back then.

I think Kevin Nash said the reason was Shawn didn't want to have to work with Sid in a ladder match since Sid wasn't a very good worker so they put Scott in instead.

I forgot who said it in their shoot interview (or was it a book?), but this is the correct answer.

It doesn't appear that there was any heat between Sid and Shawn and Sid was always treated well by the Clique. He was always their monster heel who they could work with and he'd put them over, and they'd put him over to build heat pretty frequently. Sid and Shawn both got over on each other, and Sid's power bombing of Shawn, and subsequent feud, was instrumental in getting him over as a babyface, so in that sense, Shawn needed Sid.

Shawn and Sid even tagged with each other a few times as babyfaces and were semi-friendly before their Survivor Series match in character, both being babyfaces at the time, putting each other over in promos. Their program seemed to end well.

I think, overall, Sid wasn't a threat to the Clique and was more of an asset to them, so they liked having him around. Sure, they had to work harder to get good matches out of him, but there was usually heat.

They even had it all set up with graphics and such. I don't think it was ever explained on air why the match got changed to Hall

Sid worked with the Kliq for a lot of times, so how can he buried by them?

I always believed they went with Shawn/Razor at Summerslam because Hall was the better worker of he and and Sid.
Always a Sid fan however
