Re: Wrestling Rumors & Title Runs
Not really a rumor, more of the stupidest thing I've ever heard (since I'm more inclined to believe Cornette based on his honesty):
Sid says the reason he beat HBK for the belt at Survivor Series and replaced Vader was because when they were in MSG prior, Sid was so over with the fans that Vince decided he should get the title match instead of Vader.
I don't believe that for a second and it really doesn't make sense. Just thought I'd post it.
EDIT: And even worse. In a shoot prior to that, he said Vince gave him the belt and would let him keep it as long as he drew. So, Vince told him he wanted him to drop it to HBK at RR because it was his hometown and they were doing a Thursday Night Raw and Sid would get the belt back.
Goes COMPLETELY against the well known plan of Vader getting the belt to drop it back at RR and the obvious seed planting of the HBK/Bret rematch that never happened. Bullshit radar was broken after watching Sid tell the story.
