Non-Televised Match
Owen Hart def. Barry Horowitz via Pinfall (8:32)

Match #1
Razor Ramon def. "Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase via Pinfall (7:30)
Notes: A very "changing of the guard" feel to this match. Two men from different eras going at it here. And, of course, the new guy gets the win.

Match #2 - WWF World Tag Team Championship
"The Steiner Brothers"
(Rick & Scott Steiner)
def. "The Heavenly Bodies"
(Tom Prichard & Jimmy Del Ray)
w/James E. Cornette

Notes: Rick pinned Del Ray. The Steiners, in their Michigan colors, were successful in front of their mother, sister, and Michigan crowd.

Match #3 - WWF Intercontinental Championship
Shawn Michaels
def. Mr. Perfect
via Countout (11:17)
Notes: Michaels rolled into the referee from outside the ring, and Diesel threw Perfect into the steel post to ensure the countout.

Match #4
Irwin R. Schyster def. 1-2-3 Kid via Pinfall (5:43)
Notes: Way to go, Irwin. Beat that kid down. In the Kid's first PPV match, no less. Ha ha ha.

Match #5
Bret "Hitman" Hart def. Doink the Clown
w/Jerry Lawler
via DQ (8:57)
Notes: Hart was supposed to wrestle Jerry "The King" Lawler, but Lawler came out on crutches and had Doink fight in his place. When Bret had Doink in the Sharpshooter, Lawler attacked him with a crutch to get the DQ. WWF President Jack Tunney made Lawler wrestle Bret, since Lawler's leg wasn't hurt. Bruce and Owen were in attendance to cheer on Bret.

Match #6
Jerry "The King" Lawler def. Bret "Hitman" Hart via DQ (6:33)
Notes: Lawler was in the Sharpshooter, and he tapped out, and the decision was originally a submission victory for Bret. But the referee reversed the decision and DQed Hitman for not releasing the hold from Lawler.

Match #7
Ludvig Borga def. Marty Jannetty via Submission (5:15)
Notes: Borga won the battle between the has-been and the never-was. Take your pick on who's who. Jannetty was at least an IC champ. What the hell did Borga ever do?

Match #8 - Rest in Peace Match
The Undertaker def. Giant Gonzales
w/Harvey Whippleman
via Pinfall (8:03)
Notes: Paul Bearer came down with a black wreath for Gonzales, and then he laid out Whippleman and reclaimed the urn. Not soon after, Gonzales was laid to rest.

"The Smoking Gunns"

(Billy & Bart Gunn)
def. Bam Bam Bigelow &
"The Headshrinkers"

(Samu & Fatu)

Notes: Tatanka pinned Samu. Quite a melee here, but nothing major happened in this match.

Match #10 - WWF World Heavyweight Championship
Lex Luger
def. Yokozuna
w/Mr. Fuji, James E. Cornette
via Countout (17:57)
Notes: Luger knocked out Yokozuna, but the fell out of the ring and was too heavy to be thrown back in. Before the match, the Japanese national anthem was sung. Then Randy "Macho Man" Savage came out with singer Aaron Neville, and Neville sang the U.S. national anthem.
