Match Observations:

Jim Cornette had a very bad night. Not one of his protegés emerged victorious.

After giving the paying crowd a very mediocre showing, John Hawk challenged
IRS to a loser-leaves-town match. The taxman accepted, and it will be held in
Madison Square Garden on February 18.

The tag title change will go down in the history books as one of the greatest
matches ever. The only question that remains to be answered is why Owen Hart and
Benoît interfered in the Kwang - Man Mountain Rock match and helped the ninja
beat the big man.

The Undertaker is on a very hot streak - just ask Rick Rude.

Bret Hart proved without any doubt that Bruiser Bedlam can only win due to Jim
Cornette's interference. He was easy pray for the Sharpshooter.
