Non-Televised Match
Bob "Sparkplug" Holly def. Kwang via Pinfall

Match #1 - KOTR Round 1
Razor Ramon def. Bam Bam Bigelow
w/Luna Vachon
via Pinfall (8:24)
Notes: Bam Bam was trying for a moonsault and Razor threw him off the top rope into a pin.

Match #2 - KOTR Round 1
Irwin R. Schyster def. Mabel
via Pinfall (5:38)
Notes: Mabel was going to jump from the second rope, but Irwin shook the ropes, causing Mabel to lose his balance. The bigger they are, the fatter they fall.

Match #3 - KOTR Round 1
"The Rocket" Owen Hart def. Tatanka via Pinfall (8:17)
Notes: Tatanka tried a sunset flip, but Owen fell to his knees and hooked the legs to secure the pinfall.

Match #4 - KOTR Round 1
1-2-3 Kid def. "Double J" Jeff Jarrett via Pinfall (4:37)
Notes: I think Double J was going for the figure-four when Kid came up with a small package. Jeff got really pissed after that, and dished out quite a beating to the Kid.

Match #5 - WWF World Heavyweight Championship
w/Shawn Michaels
def. Bret "Hitman" Hart
w/Jim Neidhart
via DQ (22:50)
Notes: Diesel had just jackknifed Hitman when Jim Neidhart ran in and clotheslined Diesel, saving Hitman's title. It was a fast-paced match, with many high spots, near falls, and interference.

Match #6 - KOTR Round 2
Razor Ramon def. Irwin R. Schyster via Pinfall (5:12)
Notes: Too bad for the Tax Man. You know, I always wondered why they never had any entrance music for him. They had a horn for Diesel, so why not adding machines or cash register bells or something? IRS may very well be the last wrestler to not have entrance music.

Match #7 - KOTR Round 2
"The Rocket" Owen Hart def. 1-2-3 Kid via Submission (3:35)
Notes: Kid's luck finally ran out and he had to give in to the Sharpshooter.

Match #8 - WWF World Tag Team Championship
"The Headshrinkers"
(Fatu & Samu)
def. Yokozuna & Crush
w/Mr. Fuji, James E. Cornette
via Pinfall (9:31)
Notes: Fatu pinned Crush. Lex Luger came out and distracted Crush, allowing the pin. From champion to this? Yokozuna's drop off the face of the earth continues.

Match #9 - KOTR Final
"The Rocket" Owen Hart def. Razor Ramon via Pinfall (6:35)
Notes: Good match between these two. Razor got thrown out of the ring and Jim Neidhart came out and did a number on him. Owen had the ref distracted, so it worked like a charm. The two then celebrated. At the coronation, Owen proclaimed that he will now be known as the "King of Harts."

Match #10
"Rowdy" Roddy Piper
w/Dumb Kid
def. Jerry "The King" Lawler via Pinfall (12:17)
Notes: In the weeks leading up to this match, on a King's Court segment, Lawler brought out some kid dressed as Piper. The kid kissed Lawler's feet and all that jazz, and now the kid came out with Piper. I guess Piper can forgive scrawny kids who make fun of him. Not much to say about this match, crowd loved Piper, but I was glad when this was over. The KOTR Final match should have been here.
