Quotes

Jim Ross: He's 6'7", 300-plus pounds, he's about a biscuit away from 315, it's Phineas Godwinn. Living proof of what happens when first-cousins marry.
Jerry Lawler: I'm gonna tell you something. We're fixing to have five WWF superstars in the ring and only one brain between them, and that's in the head of the Rock.

Royal Rumble is a great event in the WWF, and in 1998 it was better than ever. This time, Stone Cold Steve Austin defied the odds and won the coveted Royal Rumble to face Shawn Michaels in his final match 2 months later. Mike Tyson also makes a funny cameo as himself (which leads up to him at Wrestlemania XIV). Entertaining and satisfying, with the Rock as Rocky Maivia. A+
