HE WAS SUPPOSED TO WIN THE 1996 KING OF THE RING
Triple H in 1996 was trying to find his stride. He had the match with The Ultimate Warrior which almost ended his career. After making him do the job to Warrior, they decided they were going to give him the 1996 King of the Ring crown. This was sure to jumpstart his push toward the top of the card as the King of the Ring was meant to do back then. Luckily and thankfully, because of the Curtain Call, plans were scrapped and he wasn’t even in the tournament. The tournament was instead won by “Stone Cold” Steve Austin. This obviously turned out to be the greatest thing to ever accidentally happen in the wrestling business as Steve Austin delivered the infamous Austin 3:16 promo and The Rattlesnake was born.
