I've read both Foley's and HBK's books and neither says anything about Foley winning the title, which pretty much means that was never planned.
The plan was for HBK to lose the title to Vader and then win it back at the Rumble in his hometown. The scenario stayed the same in the end except Vader was replaced by Sid.
