that's not quite how it went down.

HBK vacated the title, and they had a fatal 4 way between the final 4 of the rumble at the february ppv to decide who the champion would be which was won by bret hart. Sid was still awaiting a rematch, so he took it the next night on raw and won the title. Two matches were set for wrestlemania:

Hart vs Austin
Undertake vs Sid

Sid and Hart had a rematch for the title to decide who took it to wrestlemania, which created the weird situation of Austin and Undertake interfering on behalf of their rivals in order to get the WM title shot.
