Match Observations:

After blitzing Aldo Montoya, Chris Benoît grabbed the microphone and challenged
Dean Malenko to a title match at the Royal Rumble. Ted DiBiase immediately
jumped from his commentators position into the ring and questioned Benoît's
intelligence. Benoît told DiBiase he had a huge amount of respect for Malenko,
but it was about time somebody took the IC title from him.

What is wrong with the Smoking Gunns ? Instead of accepting their defeats at the
hands of Dan Kroffat and Doug Furnas, they started a shoving match after their
bout had ended. Hopefully it was just tempers flaring.
