Savage-Shawn would've been interesting in that Savage was sort of the torch holder for the smaller wrestlers and it would've been a classic passing the torch moment if he would've put over Shawn but they were going with Razor as the guy and hard to argue that especially with the way their feud unfolded.
Yeah he returned and had the Crush feud and a few other matches here and there but he was never a full time guy for them again. Shawn- Savage could have happened at almost any point in 1993 and it would've been a better option than what they actually did with Shawn. The Tatanka feud was underwhelming and really didn't accomplish much other than to cool Tatanka off. The Perfect feud was also underwhelming, and then Perfect was gone shortly after.
Shawn-Savage at Mania would have stolen the show and put HBK on another level. Have Tatanka win at Mania(maybe against Bigelow?) and have a huge showdown at Summerslam between two guys coming off huge wins and rubs at Mania.
I feel like Michaels' 1993 should've been a lot better. He had all the skills and the push but the only matches and feud that really hit were against Jannetty.
