Non-Televised Match
Buck Quartermaine def. The Brooklyn Brawler

Match #1 - WWF Intercontinental Championship
Jeff Jarrett
w/The Roadie
def. Razor Ramon
via Countout (11:45)
Notes: The Roadie took out Razor's leg, and Razor couldn't get back into the ring and was counted out. This didn't sit well with Double J, so he challenged Razor to another match, and Razor accepted.

Match #2 - WWF Intercontinental Championship
Jeff Jarrett
w/The Roadie
def. Razor Ramon
via Pinfall (6:18)
Notes: -TITLE CHANGE- Razor's leg gave out when he was attempting to deliver the Razor's Edge, and Jarrett capitalized and got the pinfall with the small package.

Match #3
The Undertaker
w/Paul Bearer
def. Irwin R. Schyster
w/Ted DiBiase
via Pinfall (12:20)
Notes: During the match, DiBiase brought the Druids down. They tried to help IRS, but 'Taker still got the pinfall. The Druids beat down 'Taker, and then King Kong Bundy got himself some of 'Taker. IRS grabbed the urn from Paul Bearer, and Dibiase and his Corporation ran off.

Match #4 - WWF World Heavyweight Championship
Bret "Hitman" Hart
DRAW Diesel
Notes: Shawn Michaels attacked Diesel and prevented him from getting the win. This should have been a DQ, but Hebner made the match continue. When Bret slapped the Sharpshooter on, Owen came down and got involved. Again, the match continued. However, when Hebner got knocked down, Owen Hart and Bob Backlund attacked Bret while Michaels and Jeff Jarrett attacked Diesel. Hebner recovered and stopped the match.

Match #5 - WWF World Tag Team Championship
Bob "Sparkplug" Holly &
1-2-3 Kid

def. Tatanka &
Bam Bam Bigelow

via Pinfall (15:45)
Notes: -TITLE CHANGE- In the tournament final, the 1-2-3 Kid pinned Bam Bam to win the vacant championship. Bam Bam was pissed after the match and shoved Lawrence Taylor after LT laughed at him.

Match #6 - Royal Rumble Match
Shawn Michaels def. (See Below) (38:39)
Notes: Bret Hart jumped Owen Hart on his way to the ring, and Owen was quickly eliminated. Bret also jumped Backlund, but Bob lasted longer than Owen. When Bob was on his way back after being eliminated, Bret jumped him again. Bulldog ended up throwing Michaels over the top rope at the end, but only one of Michaels' feet hit the floor. Bulldog's music hit, but the bell never rang. Michaels knocked him over and won the Rumble.

*Entrants were supposed to come down in 1:00 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.
