We head off to the Halloween tradition event Halloween Havoc and Bret Hart going against Davey Boy Smith for the first time since heel turn. Now I do think that this match would hurt things showing Davey's age, but if anyone could help Davey Boy to a solid match it would be his brother in law. Next event would be World War III and a very different six man tag match when Bret Hart, Randy Savage, and Dallas Page would come together against Hogan, and The Outsiders.
The rematch would take place at the biggest PPV of the year Starrcade and Bret Hart would finally secure the big victory against the Hulkster. This means that Starrcade 1998 would go off the air with the Hitman finally earning the richest prize in WCW setting up all new feuds heading into 1999 with Hart as champion. Imagine Bret fighting Page, Sting, Hogan, or Goldberg for the WCW Title how different things would've been during that time if such a small change took place. Welp! This is how I would have book it and let me know what you think!!
