Since I only watch occasionally, I will ask the question. Is there a babyface that they are purposely keeping him away from that you see beating him eventually? Where is Jinder as champ ultimately going? Do you get the feeling they have a clue?

 

I would have assumed after the India tour, Corbin would have sneaked it away from him with the case, if he didn't end up in the doghouse for doubting the WWE doctor or whatever. 

 

Now? I don't know. Shane?

Not excusing it but one difference is that Heyman frequently was broke and trying to handwave it away, Jarrett had the money and seemingly just didn't want to pay guys.

 

Doesn't  one of those things make someone a better promoter than the other?

There's also that Ric Flair jumping in 1985 or 1986 changes the wrestling landscape and is about as huge as it gets. Ric Flair jumping in 1988 is a really big acquisition that helps Vince get to his 2001 monopoly 13 years early. Ric Flair jumping in 1991 is a major star who has passed his peak as a draw years earlier, but who still has a lot to offer because of the fresh matchups with the WWF's top stars of the time. Still the biggest outside name the WWF can pick up, but the WWF is so far ahead of the competition by 1991 that it's not anywhere near as big as it would have been five years earlier.

 
For me im glad Ric didn't leave NWA in 88 as Id heard about him wrestling Savage at Summerslam 88 but then we wouldn't have been treated to the 1989 feud with Ricky Steamboat.
 

I think Vince made a mistake in depushing him and letting him go. One advantage to Flair in 93 is that hes a relatively steroid-proof Star.

 
If they had kept Flair in 93 as Main Eventer who would he have feuded with? Hogan, Piper, Warrior were all gone and Randy was back commentating.
 
 
Fair question. Just at first glance, I'd ride the Perfect feud out to Wrestlemania, do tags with Luger vs Hart/Perfect/Savage/etc. on the house shows after that, have Hart beat him in the final of KOTR, transition him over to Crush to help get him over (he'd be perfect for that), then feud him with Ramon in the fall and Luger over Winter. You could slot Tatanka in there somewhere too if need be. The point would be to help get some of these guys over while still keeping Flair strong ( to alleviate the fact that he wanted to be towards the top of the card. Itd be a matter of presenting these feuds as important).
 
Of course, the other choice is Undertaker.

Sid was hugely over as a face when he came back in January 92.
