Default Shawn Michaels vs Vader [Summerslam 1996]

This was a great match and really showed HBK's ability. But in hindsight I was thinking maybe Vader should have won. If my memory is correct (and it usually is) Vader was destroying everything up to this point (including HBK) he was an unstoppable beast. HBK wouldn't have lost credibility by losing to a guy who had him by 200 pounds and was on a hot streak (in my opinion). Now I'm not a huge Vader fan but I think HBK beating him killed his heat a great deal (he did fall off after this) but I think Vader could have made some big bucks in matches with Undertaker, Psycho Sid, Bret Hart, Yokozuna etc. Having Vader vs Undertaker or a rematch with HBK at Wrestlemania could have been big if they let him run from Summerslam til Wrestlemania.
Its just a thought what do you guys think?

Did Shawn beat Vader clean? I forget...

Anyways, I would've had Vader (with Paul Bearer) win the Title at In Your House Final Four and have him headline Wrestlemania 13 vs Undertaker.

I like Sid, but he already had his run with the title a few month prior...

I thought the action in the ring was great, but the way too overbooked because of Shawn's Asshole behavior! Shawn was such a dick throughout this match that even Mr. Perfect wanted to kick his ass after it was over!

Sid should never have gotten the title as far as I am concerned let alone main evented WM. I don't care how over he was (and the guy was super over).
At most Sid vs Vader could have been a major draw for an In Your House ppv or Survivor Series.
-HBK was a dick and the match was overbooked but it turned out great anyway I believe.

Sid probably wouldn't have been in the Main Event at Wrestlemania if Shawn Michaels hadn't "lost his smile".

He still shouldn't have been. There were at least 3 other people Vince couldve put the title on.

Vader was Vince's biggest asset outisde of HBK and 'Taker in 1996. They totally screwed it up. I'd have booked him to lose to HBK at Summerslam in some controversial fashion, win the belt cleanly at Survivor Series. Royal Rumble 1997 would have been the rubber match.

Should have kept the title on Bret and booked his WM 13 bout as a title match. Sid was very over but not to the point of mid 90's world title material.

This!
And it would have made perfect sense because Stone Cold won the Royal Rumble anyway! With Bret as champ you couldn't really go wrong. You could have had Bret vs Vader which would have been new and exciting but kind of like his matches with Yoko. Or you could have had the Bret vs Undertaker match which I'm sure would have blown the roof off the place! Vince fouled it up nicely but at least we got the submission match out the deal...woulda been nice if it were the title match though

Vader has only been in the fed for about 6 months IIRC. I don't think Vader should have won.
