Match Observations:

The Giant ripped into Dave Finlay like a man possessed... and paid for it. In
his fury he didn't pick up Finlay correctly when performing his Choke Slam and
proceeded to tear his own biceps. Just when you thought he was on a run...

The Head Hunters, Toshiaki Kawada and Yokozuna, Cactus Jack and Sabu and the
new WWF World Tag Team Champions Rick Steiner and Steve Williams will square
off against one another in a four-way elimination match to determine who really
is the top team in the WWF today. With all due respect to Steiner and Williams,
their victory over Cactus and Sabu was a lucky one. Only Williams' tenacity
secured them the straps when they were on the verge of dropping the match.

Due to the inconclusive finishes tonight, WWF officials have ordered Bret Hart
and the Great Muta, Steve Austin and Diamond Dallas Page and Vader and Arn
Anderson to wrestle one another in rematches. The winner of the Great Muta vs
Bret Hart match will face the Intercontinental Champion at the King of the
Ring. The winner of Steve Austin vs DDP will face the Vader/Anderson winner for
the WWF Title.

Justin Bradshaw really did a number on Sting tonight. Nobody gave him a
snowball's chance in hell against the former WWF World Champion but the wily
Texan proved everyone wrong. The two will meet again in a qualifying match for
the King of the Ring.

After the classic they put on tonight, Rick Steamboat and Dean Malenko will
face one another for the Intercontinental Title in a two-out-of-three falls
match on Friday night in MSG.

Stay tuned !
