The estate of Tupac Shakur
refused to grant the WWF permission to use his track "California Love" as the theme song for this event. Jim Johnston
was then asked to create a soundalike version instead, simply called "California". This track was later released on the WWE Anthology album. See more
The ending of the Hardcore title match was planned as follows: Hardcore Holly would cover Crash Holly, and the referee would only reach a pinfall count of two before the time limit expired, ensuring that Crash would win the match and keep the title. However, in execution, the referee makes and completes the three count just before the on-screen clock reaches zero. There is some initial confusion among the commentators and the ring announcer Howard Finkel as to the outcome of the match, before an on-the-spot decision is made to announce Hardcore Holly as the winner, and the new Hardcore Champion. A re-write was made for the following night's "Raw" show, allowing Crash to win the title back from Hardcore Holly. See more
