8. Was There Any List of Potential Faces For WWF In 1992?

During a recent Q&A session on the “Something to Wrestle With” podcast, Bruce Prichard was asked about a list of potential faces for the World Wrestling Federation which transitioned away from Hulk Hogan to Bret Hart.

Below is what Prichard said:

“There was no list. It was simply a move at the time to skew to see who can face Ric Flair. Business was down and Vince McMahon wanted to find someone new to face Ric Flair, someone fresh, and wanted to move in a different direction.

Bret Hart got the nod due to his popularity, especially internationally. So we thought we’d give him the nod and see how he did everywhere else as champion.”
