I should point out that Diesel was pushed far ahead of Michaels for essentially his whole WWE run. A prolonged run as a team, a brief tag title run and an IC/US belt run for Ziggler could really establish McIntyre well when he does turn on Ziggler and take that belt away from him. 

I do keep wanting to type Galloway though.

You're remembering it very differently than I am. I remember watching this as it happened, it's one of the few storylines during the mid-90's WWF I actually was interested in. I haven't watched it since it originally aired, but as memory serves, HBK wanted a bodyguard, got Diesel, and for the most part Diesel just sat in the background and helped Shawn cheat to win. THEN mid-way through their run together Diesel started getting popular and got pushed on his own singles career, built popularity overtook Shawn for a short time before Shawn triumphed in the end and Diesel went to WCW.

Yes Diesel had the spotlight for a time, but Diesel's time in the spotlight began and ended with Shawn Michaels. Long before there was Diesel, there was Shawn, and long after Diesel was gone, there was still Shawn.

Not to mention that Shawn completely out-earned Diesel, and out drew Diesel, so if Diesel was pushed far ahead of Michaels for ANY amount of time it was only because it was appropriate to the storyline, and was not his whole WWE run.

That said, I'm remembering back 25 years and haven't seen it since, so maybe I'm wrong, too, but speaking as a guy that watched it all go down (semi) live, you're talking about a very different story than the one I remember.

As far as Dolph & Drew are concerned though, if it goes down exactly like HBK & Diesel I'll be more than fine, because HBK & Diesel did feud over the WWF Championship, and I think Dolph & Drew could probably put on just as good of a show as HBK & Diesel did.
