    Yes. He said that they would rather crocop become the champion because he was more popular. Normal for any promoter to think this way.
    They always gave Fedor a fair shake as far as I could tell, he is still working with Sakikabara today so that tells you something.

    He was a pain in the ass to work with twice going else where during contract negs.

    And yes they clearly wanted Crocop of Nog to beat him.
