Re: What if heel Jake Roberts had stayed?
I think he would have been given a huge push as a heel throughout 1992. Once Savage won the belt I think Roberts would have been the #1 contender for the title.
The Ultimate Warrior's RAW speech:
Every man's heart one day beats its final beat, his lungs breathe their final breath and if what that man did in his life makes the blood pulse through the body of others and makes them believe deeper in something larger than life, then his essence, his spirit will be immortalised.
