Perhaps Shawn got bumped to the floor and Marty threw him back in the ring to "help" and then Shawn was immediately pinned.  Something like that.  I'm not sure if this was before or after that LOD match. It's obviously notable for being a dream match before anyone knew that it would be a dream match.You are spot on.  HBK got KO'ed on the floor, I think he got posted.  Marty came over and picked him up and rolled him into the ring so he wouldn't get counted out, and Flair pinned him immediately.  Flair was either the "Real World's Champion", had just won the WWF Title, or had just lost the belt but was not on the downhill run towards going back to WCW yet.  It was Flair close to the top of his game, and it was a good match that really came off as a great match because it was on their syndicated TV.  But nobody gave a shit about HBK yet.
