Considering that I've never heard of this story before at all, I suspect this ended up being a "let us never speak of it again" retcon, the sort WCW loved back in the day, where you just pretend it never happened and let it cease to be canon because nobody remembers it.
While it didn't work that well for WCW (who liked to use it on things that had happened just a couple of weeks--or even HOURS--before), it's actually a fairly elegant way to deal with things in comics, where more time passes. You just do a year or two of stories that wouldn't have any logical reason to reference it, and then quietly tell the editors not to allow writers to refer to it from there on out. No need for writing a story to hamhandedly erase it, you just pretend it's an "imaginary story" and act as if it never happened.
