One of the worst WWE Pay Per Views, I have ever seen.
1 March 2010 | by (victoria b.c canada) – See all my reviews

King Of The Ring 1995 is pure torture, it honestly is, and in fact it makes the crap WWE puts out now a days|Most of the time anyway| look like a masterpiece. There is not one above average match here, not one, with so many booking problems I had. For starters why on earth would you put someone who the crowd could care less about, such as Mabel?. Why didn't Shawn go over Kama?. If Vince truly cared what the fans thought, we could have had an epic semi final match with HBK and Taker, but Vince's obsession with big men, and Cinderella story's proved to the story here.

Your announcers are Dok Hendrix and Vince McMahon, and might I add have no chemistry with one another, what so ever. Dok is annoying, and completely unfunny, and Vince often over did it once again.

Free For All.

Savio Vega Vs I.R.S. Too short, and too uneventful to really matter. The story here is Savio is a last-minute replacement for Razor. Savio wins with a spinning heel kick.

1/5

Pay Per View.

Quarter Final.

Savio Vega Vs Yokozuna. As sad as this sounds, it's one of the better matches of the night, and that's not saying anything. Savio wins by a count out.

1 1/2 /5

The Roadie Vs Bob Holly. Really? This is on the card?. Match itself isn't overly horrible, but it lacked the magnitude, as one would expect. Bob was a glorified jobber basically, and The Roadie wasn't big as he was gonna be. Roadie advances.

1 1/2 /5

HBK Vs Kama. Probably the best match of the night, but this is even average itself. It doesn't really get going, until the last few minutes. Really stupid draw finish, and Vince made a huge mistake here, of not putting Shawn over. HBK Vs Taker in the semi final, would have been epic. Shawn makes the crowd happy, by hitting Sweet Chin Music after the match

2/5

Mabel Vs The Undertaker. Horrible match, and the crowd is dead at this point. Taker is a very good wrestler for his size, but not good enough to carry this big lug. I've always said Mabel is OK for his size, but he's still no great shakes. Mabel wins after Kama interference.

1/5

Semi Finals. Savio Vega Vs The Roadie. Savio shouldn't have even been this far, to begin with. Bland is an understatement here, this feels like one of those matches you'd find on Superstars exclusively at that time. Savio advances.

1/5

KOTR Final.

Savio Vega Vs Mabel. Crowd is bored to tears, therefore a loud ECW chant starts up. One of the most underwhelming finals you'll see. Mabel becomes the 1995 King Of The Ring. Afterwards a generic speech is given by Mo, for the coronation of Mabel.

1/5

Kiss My Foot Match.

Jerry Lawler Vs Bret Hart. Bret gets a good pop. For comedy purposes, I suppose it's Okay, but it's just not very interesting, and too gimmicky. I have to admit I did get amusement seeing Lawler's disgusting looking foot. Bret wins, and Lawler not only gets Bret's foot shoved in his mouth, but as well as his own. Amusing segment of Lawler puking, and filling his mouth with toothpaste, and mouthwash after the match.

1 1/2 /5

Tatanka&Sycho Sid Vs Diesel&Bigelow. OK tag match, but definitely not main event worthy. Not as torturous as I thought it would be, and the crowd was into it. The faces win, when Sid bails on Tatanka.

2/5

Bottom line. This really should be in consideration, for the worst all time pay per view, as far as WWE goes. It makes WWE shows today look Oscar worthy, and I watch a lot of crappy WWE shows on a weekly basis. There is nothing worth seeing on here, I can't even recommend this to fellow die-hard wrestling fans. Recommendation to avoid.

1/10
