It was all a moot point by then anyway.  They were done.  Their best bet might've been to use the AWA, which still meant a lot in Japan, to get more of their guys booked over there and then send AWA vs. Japan tapes back to the States.  They sorta did that anyway with the big Saito push.  The only way they could draw a crowd or get a reasonable challenger was by piggy-backing on Japan, sorta like ECW and SD! today.  They probably should've given the belt to a Japanese guy in exchange for them handling all production costs.  That might've bought time and saved money for Verne to re-launch.  But really I don't think anything could've delayed the inevitable.

And yes, I did vote in those PWI tournaments when I was a kid.
