Match Observations:

I guess it's time to say "goodbye" to one Al Snow. The stip of the match was
that the loser of the fall would have to leave the WWF, and Mr. Snow happened
to be that loser. One down, three to go...

The two mystery qualifying matches for the IC tournament saw the re-emergence of
Kwang, Big Titan, The Barbarian and Samu on the WWF scene. If only Harvey had
stayed where he was...

Anyway, the IC tournament will look like this:

Sabu vs Arn Anderson
Jake Roberts vs Big Titan
Adam Bomb vs Dean Malenko
Davey Boy Smith vs Owen Hart
Bret Hart vs Too Cold Scorpio
The Sandman vs Rad Radford
Skip vs Razor Ramon
The Undertaker vs The Barbarian

This line-up could get very interesting come the later rounds. We could see
former tag team partners go one-on-one in Adam Bomb and Big Titan, we could see
Razor Ramon face arch-enemies Skip and Sabu in one night, the Body Donnas could
be forced to wrestle one another, how 'bout a Bret vs Owen final ? Or Bret vs
Davey Boy ? Or Jake Roberts vs The Undertaker ? There are literally thousands
of possibilities.

Scott Steiner was injured in the match with Public Enemy, which means he's out
of the tag title match against the Head Hunters at WrestleMania. Rick Steiner
will reveal his mystery partner just at showtime.

Well, well, well... so Slick Ric *didn't* manage to regain the WWF title from
Eddy Guerrero. Flair fell out of the ring, hit his head hard on the steps and
was unable to return to the ring in time. Was Guerrero just lucky ? We will see
come WrestleMania, when he faces Vader who has been destroying everyone left and
right since returning to the WWF.
