It was a big mistake. Like they wanted to make something, out of nothing.
I understand that they wanted to create a 'new star' but, what I'll never understand, is why did they choose Mabel?It's called Tryin too create NEW stars...Something WWE gets lambasted for now a days!
Rather than trying to elevate a completely useless nobody like Mabel, they should've turned Razor Ramon into a heel again. Or, Bam Bam Bigelow - he was convincing, talented and was a really strong heel.It was because there wasn't many heels in WWE really in 1995 once Shawn Michaels turned face and WWE wanted to build some new ones although in hindsight King Mabel wasn't and was never going to be the way forward. Look at the roster back then and you can see WWE had Shawn Michaels, Bret Hart, The Undertaker, Diesel and Razor Ramon all as faces whilst the only heels were Sid Vicious whilst he was around, Owen Hart, Yokozuna, Tatanka and IRS.
The plan from what I understand was for Mabel to get one of the greatest rubs in WWF history by defeating three of their biggest stars in one night: Undertaker, Michaels, and Ramon so unfortunately, The Bad Guy would've been jobbed out in the finals again.Yeah, Mabel winning the KOTR was a questionable move. I wonder if Mabel was a last minute win as Razor Ramon had a rib injury at the time and could have been a believable King.
