Match Observations:

WWF returnee Shane Douglas really made a mark for himself virtually in his first
appearences in WWF rings. His victory over burly Texan and former WWF World
Champion Stan Hansen raised some eyebrows in particular.

As the winner of the King of the Ring Tournament, he is entitled to a title shot
at the WWF champion at SummerSlam. Hansen is tough, but a win over Yokozuna is
considered close to impossible.
