I'm sure part of the reason is escalating drug-use. With anabolic hormones swimming around in the body throughout the week, the body would not need to be trained three times or even two times a week. Once is plenty. In that context hitting the lift as hard you can once a week makes sense.
I would also add that I believe most Westside lifters to use training gear. As I have never trained heavy in gear, I am not sure of it's impact. But I do wonder how much this changed the Westside dynamic.

Maybe I am speaking out of school here...
