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.

Re: Wrestling Rumors & Title Runs

Kurt Angle stated in his shoot interview that he was originally booked to win the first Undisputed championship at Vengeance 2001, but vouched for Jericho to get the rub instead. Not sure if this is credible or not, seems kinda suspect.

I'm sure it was discussed, but I don't think there was ever any real intention of Foley winning the title that night. I did hear the match ended on a disqualification though so Undertaker could be the first guy to pin Mankind, which he did at the Survivor Series.

It is credible. Jericho said the same.

Also- Angle was never supposed to win the WWF title at Unforgiven. They changed the finish because of 9/11.
