HBK was awarded "Leader of the New Generation" award at the Slammy's the night before WrestleMania 12. Bret Hart in a promo a couple of weeks after WM 12 in Germany or something said that he felt betrayed by losing the belt the way he did.
There was ample reason for Bret Hart to turn on the "new generation" since HBK took his spot as WWF Champion and "Leader of the New Generation".
What do you think Bret Hart was really doing in semi-retirement he wanted HBK to flop as champion to gain more power in his negotiations to return. We saw what happened with Bret when he came back he turned on America for siding with people like HBK(who he said was a bad representation as champion and Austin who was bloodthirsty hyena).
Warrior wouldn't have worked because he got fired before the nWo even took off if we are using real time line.
On paper it made no sense for Hall or Nash being new gen wrestlers teaming with Hogan either, but adding in the story what Hogan stated at BATB made sense. Bret Hart could easily explain his reasons for turning on the New Generation since HBK took his spot and fans were leaning more towards HBK and Austin in 1996.
The angle was better done in wcw anyways.
