Match Observations:A lot has come out of the King of the Ring this year and the way things look,
that won't be changing anytime soon.
In a rematch of their King Of The Ring quarterfinal, Owen Hart scored an
extremely close victory over Dave "Fit" Finlay. If one thing's for sure then
it's that both of these men are right on track to challenge for the IC title
in the near future.
Speaking of challenges, Shawn Michaels and Diesel are gearing up to their shot
at the WWF World Tag Team Titles at SummerSlam. The Public Enemy had absolutely
nothing to put up against the combined onslaught of the Heartbreak Kid and Big
However, Michaels and Diesel have one more test awaiting them before they head
into SummerSlam, as they will have to get by the former tag team champions
Cactus Jack and Sabu first.
The tag team scene has been chaotic recently to say the least. Tonight we had a
totally unexpected title change, from Steve Williams and Rick Steiner to
Toshiaki Kawada and Yokozuna, as well as a major upset in which the Head Hunters
lost decisively to Kensuke Sasaki and Jushin Liger. Although those two teams
aren't likely to meet in the ring due to their Japanese heritage, you should
never say never in the WWF.
Bret Hart avenged his loss to the Great Muta, driving the latter wrestler out of
the WWF. What was most interesting about their match was that it revealed a lot
about what lies in the future for Bret. The Undertaker of all people came to
ringside to save Bret Hart's WWF career. The Great Muta had him beat. Without
the help of the Undertaker, Bret'd be out of the WWF forever.
Little did we know that Undertaker's interference served a purpose: Bret Hart is
a full-fledged member of Ric Flair's Four Horsemen now, replacing the departed
Anderson's incarnation of the Horsemen scored a major win over the original Four
Horsemen tonight, and Arn paid Flair back for what he did to him at the King Of
The Ring. If Ric Flair is the dirtiest player in the game, Arn Anderson may just
be the one to finally knock him off his podestal.
Steve Austin - as per the contract he signed prior to accepting the Vader match
at the King Of The Ring - got a rematch against Vader tonight. Unfortunately, he
once again came up with the short end of the stick, as Vader injured him badly
enough that he may not wrestle another match in several months.
At In Your House next Sunday, all three titles will be defended just two weeks
before SummerSlam ! Hollywood Hogan challenges Vader for the WWF Title, Rick
Steiner and Steve Williams try to reclaim their lost WWF World Tag Team Titles
and Dean Malenko defends his IC title against Bret "Hitman" Hart.
Don't miss it !
