Because he was loyal to the WWE unlike Nash and Hall. Nash said in an interview the reason he left the WWE (the final nail in the coffin) was changing a match the last minute with Bret where Bret was not going to look weak. so Nash just said forget this and told Eric he was going to sign with WCW.
Plus Shawn knew he was being groomed as the next guy , and why would he go from that to WCW where he would play 2nd fiddle to Hogan, Sting and probably Hall and Nash.
