No excuse for that tuxedo match!

Live from Houston, TX

Your hosts are Vince McMahon & Shawn Michaels

William Shatner calls The King's Court the "Home of the Whopper" He says he doesn't care if that makes Lawler mad. He says he's here to promote his show TekWar and asks Lawler to leave him alone.

Intercontinental Championship

Razor Ramon (C) Vs Owen Hart

Owen may have had the title won with the Sharpshooter, but Bret Hart comes in and attacks Owen, costing him the win. Therefore, Owen wins by DQ. Afterwards, Jeff Jarrett runs out and attacks Bret until Razor comes in and helps Bret kick Jarrett's but. This was a really good match that was cut too short, unfortunately. Both were clearly motivated here and produced one of the better T.V matches from 95.

***1/4

We get a Royal Rumble report with Todd Pettengill, followed by comments from Diesel about his title match with Bret Hart at the Royal Rumble.

Jerry Lawler says if William Shatner doesn't show him the respect he deserves, he's gonna send him back to Star Trek.

Hakushi (W/Shinja) Vs Matt Hardy

Yup. Matt and his brother spent times as jobbers before making it big in the WWE. Hakushi pins Matt with a springboard legdrop. There isn't much to report with this one. Matt would see better days.

1/4*

William Shatner is Jerry Lawler's guest on The King's Court. Lawler butters up Shatner for his credentials and asks if Shatner's greatest moment in his career is being on The King's Court. Shatner's response is a big thumbs down. Shatner says he had better days, like when he was chewing gum yesterday. Vince laughs like it's the funniest thing on earth. Shatner asks Lawler why Lawler has taunted him all week. Lawler says it's his talk show, his rules. Lawler keeps touching Shatner so Shatner asks him to stop. Lawler keeps on doing it and says nobody with pointy ears is gonna save Shatner. Okay. That was slightly funny. Lawler says he'll touch Shatner as much as he pleases. Shatner responds with a hammerlock, then a monkey flip (!) Bret Hart comes down and raises Shatner's hand, while Jeff Jarrett comes out and holds Jerry Lawler back.

Thoughts: This was somewhat amusing. believe me, I've seen a lot worse when it comes to guest celebrities.

Pamela Anderson keeps getting all these calls from all the WWF Superstars. She's gonna escort the winner of The Royal Rumble at Wrestlemania. Eh. Pam was alright.

King Kong Bundy (W/Ted Dibiase) Vs Gary Sarbaugh

Bundy wins in seconds with an avalanche. I'm not even gonna bother to comment on this one.

DUD

The Bushwhackers try to psyche up Howard Finkel for his tuxedo match against Harvey Whippleman. Well Dunn tries to do the same thing for Harvey Whippleman.

We get a vignette of "The Supreme Fighting Machine" Kama. He was banned from the sport of boxing for being to vicious so he's joining the WWF. BAHAHAHAHAHA! As atrocious as 1995 was in the WWF, it can be good for a few unintentional laughs.

Tuxedo Match

Howard Finkel (W/The Bushwhackers) Vs Harvey Whippleman (W/Well Dunn)

Oh, god! Somebody save me. Whether you like my reviews or not, you should appreciate that I'm wasting precious minutes of my life watching this crap. Think of it as an unwatchable male catfight with two disgusting looking bodies rolling around the ring. For those that care, Howard Finkel wins.

DUD

I don't care how many good matches are on a show. If you give me a f*******ing tuxedo match, I'm gonna give you the thumbs down. Yes, Owen Hart Vs Razor Ramon is worth watching, but the show automatically gives me a bad taste in my mouth because of the tuxedo match.
