Match Observations:

When was the last time we saw a member of the Horsemen score a clean win ? The
unbelievable happened today. You can say whatever you want about Arn Anderson
and the cronies he surrounds himself with, but this man's ring poise is
unmatched - as Shawn Michaels found out the hard way. Just when Michaels thought
he had Arn where he wanted him - in a German suplex position -, Arn went behind
him and rolled him up just like that. It was a hard-fought match, a match in
which Arn Anderson proved that without a doubt he belongs in the very elite of
wrestling.

The Horsemen had a great night. Not only did Arn Anderson retain the WWF Title,
which many doubted he could, but they also stood supreme over arch-enemies
Steve Austin, Brian Pillman and Chris Benoit. To add insult to injury, Steve
Austin was pinned with his very own finisher ! This will definitely set up
rematches down the road.

We just learned that Hiroshi Hase sustained a neck injury at the hands of Cactus
Jack tonight. For the time being, Jushin Liger will replace him in the team with
Kensuke Sasaki.

Cactus and Sabu seem to have the perfect chemistry. They better have, as they
will have to defend their WWF World Tag Team Titles against Rick Steiner and
Steve Williams at In Your House.

After his victory over Owen Hart, Great Muta will have to win two more matches
before the five minute mark. If everything works out correctly, he'll challenge
Dean Malenko around the King of the Ring.

It seems as though Justin Bradshaw didn't like losing to Sting at all. I have a
feeling he'll be regretting his decision down the line...
