Was the Ultimate Warrior scheduled to win the WWF title in 1996?
For anyone who has watched the Self Destruction of the Ultimate Warrior DVD, they may remember a part in which the WWE are talking about the Warrior no showing dates in 1996. While they were showing advertisements for the Warrior at the time, one was showcased in which it had the Ultimate Warrior DEFENDING the WWF Championship against Vader at a show in July. If this was the case, it would signal that Shawn Michaels would have, at some stage, dropped the title to the Ultimate Warrior at some point before this time.
Has anyone ever heard any truth to this rumour, or if WWE had any actual plans to put the belt on the Warrior at that time? Looking back, it honestly would not surprise me if WWE put together the advertisement up just to make Warrior look even worse to the fans on the DVD (because that DVD was just a complete burial as anyone who watched it knows). I still cannot see a point in which it looked like Warrior was being built to win the belt as quickly as July. He was scheduled to participate in a 6 man tag team match at the WWF International Incident pay per view, a match which would have had him team up with Shawn Michaels and Ahmed Johnson against Owen, Bulldog and Vader.
Anyway, have you guys ever heard any rumors in relation to this?
