Non-Televised Match
Chris Walker def. The Brooklyn Brawler via DQ
Notes:

Match #1
"The New Foundation"
(Owen Hart & Jim Neidhart)
def. "The Orient Express"
(Kato & Tanaka)
w/Mr. Fuji
via Pinfall (17:17)
Notes: Owen pinned Tanaka. Good moves by Owen, but overall this match left something to be desired. Orient Express? Come on.

Match #2 - WWF Intercontinental Championship
"Rowdy" Roddy Piper
Challenger
def. The Mountie
Champion
w/Jimmy Hart
via TKO (5:18)
Notes: -TITLE CHANGE- Piper used the sleeper hold to put out the Mountie, and the match was over. Piper got his first title.

Match #3
"The Beverly Brothers"
(Beau & Blake Beverly)
w/The Genius
def. "The Bushwhackers"
(Luke & Butch)
w/Jameson
via Pinfall (14:55)
Notes: Blake pinned Butch. Heenan's commentary on Jameson is priceless. Worth the cost of the tape for this match alone. Heenan and Monsoon and their best. The Bushwhackers held the Genius so Jameson could get a shot in, but he just kicked Genius in the shin.

Match #4
"The Natural Disasters"
(Earthquake & Typhoon)
Challengers
w/Jimmy Hart
def. "The Legion of Doom"
(Hawk & Animal)
Champions
via Countout (9:22)
Notes: LOD saves their titles by getting counted out. Chumps. The Disasters were pretty ticked off after the match and thought they deserved the titles.

Match #5 - WWF World Heavyweight Championship - Royal Rumble Match
"Nature Boy" Ric Flair
w/Mr. Perfect
def. (See Below) (1:01:58)
Notes: -TITLE CHANGE-

*Entrants were supposed to come down in 2:00 minute intervals. But for storytelling purposes, they sometimes have to run over/short, depending on what's happening in the ring. Individual times are from when the timer hit zero until the Superstar's feet hit the floor. Times are approximate, taken from video footage.
