Match Observations:

The 1-2-3 Kid did the seemingly impossible. Toshiaki Kawada pummeled him from
bell to bell, but in the end, the Kid reigned supreme. Way to go Sean !

Diesel also seems to be on his way back to composure.

What a comeback for veteran WWF superstar Bret Hart. If he keeps his game at
this pace, he'll be in for title shots very soon.

Speaking of title shots, it will be Vader who gets the shot at the WWF champion
at WrestleMania.

Sting kept the WWF title against Razor Ramon and will have to defend it against
Bam Bam Bigelow
