WWF Intercontinental Championship
Shawn Michaels defeated Marty Jannetty
Bam Bam Bigelow defeated The Big Boss Man
Bret Hart defeated Razor Ramon
30 Man Royal Rumble Match
While this was nowhere near as good as last year there were still a lot of highlights that made this an enjoyable show. Apart from the two title matches the undercard was pretty grim. The Steiner Brothers basically squashed The Beverly Brothers and Bigelow did the same to Bossman in an impressive dominant display. The story behind Michaels and Jannetty goes back over a year to when Michaels put Marty’s Head through the Barber Shop window. This match became more about their feud and Sherri which left the IC title as no more than an after thought. After only being in the WWF for roughly 6 months Razor Ramon already had a shot at the WWF Championship. It was a good match that Razor largely dominated. He may not of won it here but I’m sure some time in the future he will hold gold in the WWF. For the first time ever the winner would go on to Wrestlemania to face the WWF Champion. This was nowhere near as good as last year and didn’t have nearly as many as top names as last years but there were some outstanding performances most notably Bob Backlund. Having only just returned to the WWF, the former champion and 40+ year old was able to enter the match at number two then go over an hour in the match then being eliminated third from last. The Undertaker dominated while he was in the ring but he was taken out after Harvey Wimpleman introduced us to Giant Gonzalez. The guy was dressed in this hideous body suit but he did more damage to the Deadman than anyone else has ever done before. Last years winner, Ric Flair was eliminated by his current nemesis Mr Perfect adding to the heat these two have leading into their loser leaves WWF match on Monday. Randy Savage was able to get to the last two but he was never going to be able to get the massive Yokozuna over the top rope. After a mistake by Savage Yokozuna won the match and will go on to Wrestlemania to face Bret Hart. This new generation of WWF Superstars may not yet be as over as past stars were and still are but I’m sure given time they could surpass those that came before them.
