Question about supposed USWA/WCW angle in 1991:

I had a copy of Wrestling Eye (yes, a mark magazine) from a little over 7 years
ago that told a story about a supposed interpromotional angle that was supposed
to take place between the USWA and WCW.  Apparently, they wanted to combat the
"Ric Flair as the Real World Champion" angle by bringing in Jerry Lawler to
challenge Lex Luger to a title vs. title match.  However, the magazine
continued, aside from the complications (shouldn't an invader be a heel
challenging a face?), the angle was dropped because Paul Heyman and Eddie
Gilbert leaked information about it, and that's why Paul E. was temporarily
fired (before coming back to start the Dangerous Alliance).  

This, to the best of my memory, is what the magazine described.  My question
is, is any of it true?
