Obviously it wasn't based on how the end of 90 and 91 played out but you have to take more than just the gate into consideration. in 90/91 Warrior was in his early 30s while Hogan was in his late 30s. That has to and should have played a part in the decisions made at that time. Without knowing all the drama that would surround Warrior between the summer of 91-fall of 92, you got to give the younger guy who you believe you can build the company around for maybe the next 10 years a true shot.

Oh yeah, it shouldn't be all about gate when you're in your first reign but you need to keep in mind that Warrior had been given the push to the moon that Vince has only ever really given to a handful of guys. He was a dominant Intercontinental Champion who had only lost once in his career when he faced off against Hogan. He beat Hogan clean (though obviously Hogan pulled some shenanigans at the end) for the world title at Wrestlemania too. No-one beat Hogan clean in those days, I'm struggling to remember if he actually had lost clean at that point since winning the title off the Sheik.

You couldn't push a guy to the world title better than they did Warrior and then his house shows were drawing half of what Hogan headlined house shows were drawing. You can see why that would cause Vince to hit the panic button, particularly when you read in the likes of Bret Hart's book about how Warrior wouldn't put in the overtime with fans that Hogan used to. If I were Vince, I'd look at the numbers and look at Warrior's attitude and decide that he was never going to take Hogan's place as well.

You also have to consider the material Warrior was given to work with he was re-hashing a program he had the previous year. So when they come around to all the cities without Hogan and Warrior is doing the same thing he did the previous year why would a fan want to pay for the same thing again and no Hogan?

It goes back to Warrior being booked poorly starting the day after Mania VI. As you point out his ascension was great but once on top he was treated as number 2 before any gate numbers could be established.
