I was re-reading Foley's first book, and something came to mind. What would have happened if the original plan for KOTR '98 had been pursued, whereby Foley and Austin would have met in Hell In the Cell. By getting de-pushed at that point, did it make Foley's career, as the suicidal bumps off the top probably would not have occurred.
Thank you Mr. Wanz for the check, now you get an AWA World Title Reign. But be careful, my boy Greg is a heat machine.
I think, as possibly unnerving as it might be, Mr. Socko was a lot more effective in getting Mick Foley insanely over than the HITC bumps. If he had fought Austin one more time at KOTR, I still think his incredible charisma and sense of humor would've gotten him an eventual WWF title reign.

As far as swerving the fans go, that's one thing, but I think they showed a hell of a lot more respect to Austin last night than he deserved, considering everything that's happened in the past few months.
