Your hosts are Vince McMahon, Jerry Lawler & Jim Ross
We start off with JR interviewing Bret Hart. Bret says there is no reason why Bret isn't the WWF Champion. He says things have changed in the WWF, because you can't tell anybody apart anymore. You don't know who your friends, your enemies, or what the rules are. He says the problem with the WWF is there are no rules. He says he doesn't need to abide by any rules. He calls Shawn Michaels a prissy and says he gave Bret his word that he wouldn't interfere in Bret's match against Sycho Sid. He says Shawn's been out to get him because he can't handle that he's better than him. He says he'll do anything to get back on top in the WWF. He announces that he'll be in the Royal Rumble.
Thoughts: Bret was slowly morphing into a vindictive and bitter personality. He cut a great promo here.
Vader (W/Jim Cornette) Vs "Stone Cold" Steve Austin
Bret Hart joins for commentary. Austin wins by DQ after Bret Hart attacks Austin. Bret Hart applies the Sharpshooter to Austin and refuses to relinquish the hold until officials come help and break it up. As short-lived as it was, the brawl between Austin and Vader was certainly intense. Bret Hart's attack on Austin added to the growing intensity of the feud between Bret and Austin.
Razor Ramon & Diesel Vs The Godwinns
Razor and Diesel win after Diesel hits the jackknife on Phinneas. Yech! This was pretty bad. Two teams nobody gave a damn about. This is the "fake" Razor and Diesel.
Sycho Sid says nobody can beat him for the WWF title. He's the master. If you step into the ring with him, you will go down. He says he's not afraid to face Shawn in Shawn's hometown at the Royal Rumble. Sid thrives on adversity. He warns Jose Lothario not to get involved with him and Shawn.
Shawn Michaels says he's used to being humiliated. He says San Antonio is also the home of Jose Lothario. He says Texas doesn't like what Sid's done to Lothario. He says he has no problem with Sid beating him. He has a problem with what Sid did to Jose Lothario. He's not here to whine and cry like Bret Hart. He says he's the only one who can talk about his life intimately. He's gonna walk out the WWF Champion at the Royal Rumble. He tells Bret Hart he's no Shawn Michaels.
Doug Furnas & Phill Lafon Vs TL Hopper & Doctor X
Furnas and Lafon win with relative ease. I don't have much to say about this one.
Billy Gun cuts a quick promo about facing Bart Gunn later tonight.
Jerry Lawler loses to Sable in a game of Karate Fighters. Triple H & Jerry Lawler beat up Marc Mero after until Goldust makes the save. Jerry Lawler calls Goldust queer and gets his ass kicked for it.
Bart Gunn Vs Billy Gunn
The match ends in a no-contest after Billy can't get up from a stun gun on the ropes. Billy's wife and Bart's wife run in to check on Billy. Billy ends up being loaded on a stretcher as Raw goes off the air. Billy wasn't really hurt. They were trying to make the Billy and Bart feud really mean something. They didn't really succeed with it.
