Non-Televised Match
Doink the Clown def. Jim Powers via Submission (5:57)

Match #1
"The Steiner Brothers"
(Rick & Scott Steiner)
def. "The Beverly Brothers"
(Beau & Blake Beverly)
via Pinfall (10:44)
Notes: Scott pinned Blake, and he did it with the Franken-Steiner. R.I.P. Beverly Brothers.

Match #2 - WWF Intercontinental Championship
Shawn Michaels
def. Marty Jannetty
via Pinfall (14:19)
Notes: Sensational Sherri came out and everyone was wondering whose corner she would be in. She stayed neutral for most of the match, but then slapped Michaels right in the kisser. The referee was later knocked down, and Jannetty held Michaels for Sherri, so she could get in a free shot. Sherri tried using her shoe, but Michaels ducked and Jannetty got nailed.

Match #3
Bam Bam Bigelow def. The Big Boss Man via Pinfall (10:08)
Notes: In his last hurrah in the WWF for a while, Boss Man puts over Bam Bam Bigelow.

Match #4 - WWF World Heavyweight Championship
Bret "Hitman" Hart
def. Razor Ramon
via Submission (17:58)
Notes: Pretty good match between the two. There was some doubt as to whether or not Hart could get the Sharpshooter on Razor's big legs, but he managed to do it.

NEAR ENTRYWAY: Bobby "The Brain" Heenan introduced "The Narcissist" Lex Luger.

Match #5 - Royal Rumble Match
w/Mr. Fuji
def. (See Below) (1:06:33)
Notes: Groan. "Julius Caesar" and "Cleopatra" came to the ring before the match to invite everyone to WrestleMania at Caesar's Palace. Lawler was eliminated but still helped eliminate Mr. Perfect from the outside. Giant Gonzales (oh God) came out and faced the Undertaker, and eliminated him. Savage was kind of an idiot when he went for a pin on Yokozuna. Yokozuna just threw him off and out.

*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.
