Honestly I think Bret would have taken the Vince McMahon spot as a commissioner that hated Austin because of the "Attitude" he represented; he was on record as being uncomfortable with the direction WWF was going in and so he would have made a perfect authority to go against Austin, DX et all.
Before that however he would've been the guy to drop the belt to Austin at WrestleMania 14 no question.
Actually Bret staying does a few things; no Mr MchMahon character, Owen wouldn't have dies because i bet Bret would have talked him out of that stunt. HBK probably dies of a drug OD at some point because he wouldn't have been champ and wouldnt have messed his back up in January 1998; WCW would've reigned for a lot longer in the ratings as there would be no Austin/ McMahon rivalry to springboard off of.... Bret was the nucleus that did a lot of good for the WWF the way it happened actually.
One great thing wed have gotten out of Bret staying is him vs Kurt Angle, now THAT would've been a good matchup.
