Can you blame Bret for not wanting to drop the belt to Shawn after
A) Shawn refused to drop it to him
B) Vince said he could drop it after SS
C) He had complete control for his last 30 days
From what I've seen it seems like Vince's business point differed from Bret's integrity of his Hitman character along with the rivalry with Shawn. Obviously Vince didn't want to build Bret up before he left for WCW but he put himself in it. As Vince screwed Bret could he not have sued due to the creative control clause not being used?
Vince was in the wrong and backed himself into a corner that he couldn't get out of. I wouldn't of blamed Bret; HBK was an asshole and didn't want to drop the belt to him, Stone Cold or Taker faking injury made matters work. He offered to drop the belt the night after and even to Austin or Taker. Vince was the boss but the ball was in Bret's court. HBK being an ass made the situation what it was.
