Question for blog on the first time Bret and Shawn faced off on pay-per-view:1-I feel like the crowd is dead for 90% the match until the finish. Do you think this was the WWF audience just getting used a more mat based main event style now that Hogan and Warrior were gone? Or was Shawn not over enough at the time to be be considered a serious threat to actually win the title?2-Do you know the original plans for surviver series 92 before the title got switched to Bret? Was it going to be Flair defending against Macho Man?
1. Shawn was in a different universe from Bret at that point and had no viable chance of winning. Plus it was a different style on top, as you note.
2. No, I'm pretty sure Savage/Warrior v Flair /Razor was always the idea, unless we're veering into the weird parallel universe where Warrior turned heel at Summerslam.
