Re: How long could have The Ultimate Warrior lasted as the top guy of the WWF?
Warrior could have dominated the WWF in the very early 90's, filling in the roles that Hulk Hogan, Lex Luger, and Randy Savage filled before losing to a major heel (let's say Yokozuna) who would ultimately lose to Bret Hart as the smaller guys came into power.
Even when Warrior wasn't champion, he was a big deal in the company and while Bret/Davey Boy was the clear draw for SummerSlam '92, Warrior facing Savage in a face vs face match was also huge draw for that event, as well.
People often cite Warrior's run as a failure without mentioning that even Hogan didn't draw "Hogan numbers" when he regained the WWF Title at WrestleMania 7, and even WrestleMania 9. Warrior was just as good of a switchout for Hogan as Savage and Bret were.
I think, though, that come 1994, Bret Hart really needed to be champion as the business evolved.
