Match Observations:The Royal Rumble is just around the corner, and the most important matches have
Cactus Jack and Sabu will defend their WWF World Tag Team Titles against the
combination of Toshiaki Kawada and Yokozuna. Will the WWF's two favorite nut-
cases be able to overcome this dangerous team ? Time will tell.
Shawn Michaels is pissed. Not only did Hogan cause him to lose to the Giant a
few weeks ago, but now the Boy Toy got beat by the "old man", as Michaels
referred to Hogan prior to the match. Sure, a handful of tights was involved,
but a win's a win. Michaels and Diesel will face Hogan and the Giant in a
double-strap cage match at the Royal Rumble.
Will the Great Muta be able to defeat Dean Malenko ? These two have never met
before in a singles match.
The Undertaker will challenge Steve Austin for the WWF World Title at the Royal
Rumble. However, the Four Horsemen have already made noises that they will
petition the WWF president to give the shot to Arn Anderson, since he did
something the Undertaker hasn't done before - beating Steve Austin fair and
square in the middle of the ring. Big deal... how should Taker have beaten
Austin if the two of them haven't even met in the ring ?
I've been told that a major star will be making his return to the WWF at the
Royal Rumble... a true franchise player. Who could that be ? Well, you'll have
to tune in. See you then !
