Exactly. That was likely the problem. I think I remember a story about Vince not being happy about Austin not wanting to stay heel back then. I think the plan may have been for a babyface Triple H to go over a heel Austin at WM18 but that's just speculation on my part based on things I've heard over the years.
Rock vs Hogan and Taker vs Flair were both awesome. No need to change either match.
I'd say Austin could have used a better opponent than Scott Hall despite Scott Hall's amazing job selling the stone cold stunner. I could watch Hall sell that move all day.
