I'd forgotten about Bret's groin pull remark when comparing his real injury to what he claimed was a phony one on Dean's part. His outstanding delivery made that great line even better. It is too bad a combination of his own injuries, time he took off due to Owen's death, and the usual front office and booking garbage in WCW halted the momentum of what could have been a main event heel run for Bret. That summer, due to injuries and guys going home due to politics, the main heels in WCW for a time were Kevin Nash, Sid, and Rick Steiner along with the Jersey Triad. Bret could absolutely have carried the ball as lead heel had he been available.
