Re: What had Austin not left in 2002?
I don’t think it would look really THAT different. I feel like Austin was slowing down by this time anyway, sure there’s bound to have been maybe another two or three matches that could have happened.
I imagine if he hadn’t left, which would then mean he came to some sort of agreement with WWE about how they could work a program with Austin vs. Brock... so obviously that’s the number one thing that could have been different. The randomness of the Monday night raw booking by itself is what started the whole mess of Austin leaving.
This is where I get a little sore... a guy like Austin has walked out cause he didn’t get what he wants... in recent years it’s been said by numerous people on podcasts that Austin would refuse other things presented to him... yet, we don’t think of Austin as a ‘backstage pain’
We turn our heads to this and look for something else Shawn Michaels did in a match with Vader somewhere...
