Match Observations:

What a night !

Due to Arn Anderson's injury, the WWF board has decided that Ric Flair will have
to defend the tag team titles with Paul Roma as his partner for the time being.

Diesel sent Steve Williams RUNNING from the WWF - finally.

We should note that Shawn Michaels wouldn't have won the King of the Ring, had
Steve Williams not caused Diesel to be counted out in the quarterfinals.

Diamond Dallas Page will be returning from his tour of Japan soon. As we've been
told, he'll have to defend the IC title against Jeff Jarrett.

The WWF title's vacancy has finally been filled, and there couldn't be a
worthier champion than Vader. You may disagree with his tactics, but he's one of
the ten best wrestlers in the world anyway.
