Alternate Realities of Wrestling #1

What-If Harley Race was WWF Champion?

During a show weeks before WrestleMania III, Jimmy Snuka and WWF Champion Hulk Hogan faced off in a house show title match in East Lansing, New Jersey. Snuka goes to the top rope, expecting Hogan to move he comes down with full force. When Hogan didn’t move his collar bone broke and suddenly the monolith that is the World Wrestling Federation was venerable. 
Vince McMahon hastily readies a still anticipated pay-per-view and make a living without his meal ticket. 
Not all is bleak for the WWF. They bolster a roster of strong individuals, up and comers and legends still with lots left in the tank. 
These are the subsequent cards from the monthly big events from a parallel universe.
