When Hulk Hogan's "prime" in the WWF finally came and went in the early 1990s, the torch was passed to Bret "Hitman" Hart, who actually could put on a better show in his sleep than Hogan ever could dream of. Unfortunately, following the abdication of Hogan, the WWF was not able to support its top superstar with any other top-tier talent, and this fact was never more apparent than at Royal Rumble 1996.

From top to bottom, this was a terrible card. The preliminary matches were incredibly lackluster (the character of "Goldust" only proves how low the WWF was stooping at this time), the Rumble was filled with fat guys, has-beens, and a few 100% jobbers, and event the main event (Hart- Undertaker) didn't live up to past billings. Long gone are the days of exciting characters and thrilling matches, replaced instead by weirdos and stereotypes that don't elicit any sort of emotional connection with the fans/viewers.

Unless you are a die-hard WWF junkie, please do not spend one cent of your finances on this three-hour snoozefest.
