Match Observations:The Royal Rumble had great wrestling action. Unfortunately it also had too many
draws, be it time limit draws or double DQs.
Some of the things that did come out of today's PPV:
- Paul Roma is the new fourth Horseman.
- Razor Ramon has made good of his promise to the 1-2-3 Kid and joined his team
- the holes ripped into the New Generation by the departures of Ramon and Sting
have been more than filled by signing the Steiner Brothers as its new members.
- Speaking of the Steiners, who would have thought that Chris Benoît and Al Snow
could give them such an even match ?
Who will get the title shot against Ric Flair at WrestleMania ? Three men are in
the running currently, them being Shawn Michaels, Toshiaki Kawada and Razor
Ramon. Diesel might also be added to that mix in the months to come. Interesting
things await us.
