Here are the matches...

First round - Savio Vega v Yokozuna: Both show off their flags at the start of the match gaining cheap heat before the Philadelphia crowd and ECW's 'Hatman' sits in the front with his mate in the same seats he always has. Savio squeezed a count-out victory from Yokozuna after Owen Hart interfered and hurt Razor's 'injured' ribs getting him some cheap heat. Savio and Yokozuna battle on the outside but Vega sneaks back into the ring before the 10 count.2/10

Bob 'Sparkplug' Holly v The Roadie: The hardcore legend and one half of the New Age Outlaws start the match with a multitude of near pinfall attempts. The Intercontinental champion Jeff Jarrett is at ringside as Roadie's assistant. I think Holly gets frustrated during the match because he can't seem to get the apathetic crowd to react and would be furious by the time the match finishes because he clearly gets his shoulder up but the referee counts the pinfall anyway. Probably the best match of the night but that really isn't saying too much.5/10

Shawn Michaels v Kama: After his appearance as Papa Shango and before his Godfather days Charles Wright would appear as the rather lacklustre human killing machine Kama. As he arrived to the ring, Shawn tries the crown on but it is too big for him which sends out warning bells that he isn't going to win the tournament. Because the pace is rather slow for a King of the Ring match and nobody seemed interested in going for a pin, we determine early on this is going to the end. As predictable as night and day, Shawn Michaels attempts a sunset flip just as soon as the bell sounds for the time limit and both men are eliminated from the contest. Shawn obviously shouts 'bullshit'. I agree with Shawn but he isn't the poor sod that's watching this. Yokozuna is gone and now Shawn Michaels is eliminated...Things aren't looking so good.4/10

Undertaker v Mabel: This match would epitomise Undertaker's year, the phenom facing and carrying a bloke, often overweight, who had absolutely no talent whatsoever. Apart from an interesting bit where Undertaker gets his foot trapped in the ring ropes, everything else here was lead-paced. Mabel gets help from Kama who distracts Undertaker enough so Mabel can drop his big leg across him for the pinfall.4/10

Semi final - Savio Vega v The Roadie: You've got to wonder what the bookers have been smoking. This match ends when Vega Irish whips Roadie who doesn't see Jarrett on the ring apron but avoids the collision with him. Vega knees Roadie into Jarrett who falls off the apron and rolls Roadie up for a 3 count. Nothing remarkable about this match and the crowd notably get annoyed during it.3/10

Bret 'Hitman' Hart v Jerry Lawler in a 'kiss my feet' match: Lawler, as usual, stalls everything with his cheap heat. During the match Lawler pile-drives Hart no less than 3 times and Bret still kicks out at 2. Lawler takes off his boot to smack Hart in the face. Hakushi comes to the ring and manages to mess up his interference. Bret applies the sharpshooter and gains victory by submission. Not only does Bret ram his foot down Lawler's throat, he manages to bend Lawler's own foot into this throat! Bret was underutilised here which is a massive shame because 1995 was when they needed him the most. Lawler tries his best to work the crowd and, considering how disillusioned the fans are at this point, he doesn't do a bad job of it.5/10

Final round - Savio Vega vs Mabel: There is very little point in talking about the match. Quality-wise it stunk. Vega to his credit tried but Mabel just wasn't interested in entertaining the people. Chants of 'ECW...ECW' ring out and this must have disturbed McMahon at the time. The writing is on the wall when Mabel uses the fall-away slam and splash to become the 1995 king. The crowd are stunned in silence, they are shocked but not in a good way. This is such a mess that the crowd are rabid by the time Mabel and Mo start the coronation.3/10

Once on the throne, Mabel gets hit in the face with a piece of rubbish. I don't think even he was prepared for such hostility. Mo attempts to read the coronation while chewing gum or something - idiot. He takes so long to read it but it is such a WWF moment for all the wrong reasons. Mabel wanted heat and he got it from a merciless Philadelphia crowd.

Diesel and Bam Bam Bigelow v 'Psycho' Sid and Tatanka: Bam Bam arrives to the ring with a weird outfit on and some pyrotechnic gloves or something. Diesel damaged his elbow and so therefore does very little during the course of the night. I loved Sid Vicious and was intrigued by Vinnie Vegas in WCW so how did Sid Eudy and Kevin Nash suddenly become useless in 1995? The only man trying in that ring was Bam Bam Bigelow and unfortunately one man does not make a tag match. Sid bailed out on Tatanka in the end and Diesel drops the elbow on Tatanka for the pin. The fireworks go off and nobody gives a toss. What a sad night for wrestling.2/10

Many people say this is the worst WWE PPV of all time. If it isn't it's close. The booking was the pits and Mabel as King is an absolute nightmare because you've got to wonder where such a terrible worker can possibly go from here. Bret Hart tried his best but unfortunately Philadelphia was robbed that night.
