Royal Rumble ’95



Arnold Furious: We’re in Tampa, Florida. The WWF was struggling in 1995. No one had kicked the company up the ass yet and the only major change the company faced was its title situation. Shawn Michaels’ Kliq was beginning to dominate. Diesel had the world title and Shawn was in line for the Rumble victory, but it was a company lacking in big star names. Vince McMahon opted to build his own. The title match sees Bret Hart challenging Diesel. Bret never really lost the WWF title, thanks to his brother Owen, and Diesel beat Backlund before Hitman could get a re-match. The pre-show is hosted by Todd Pettengill and Stephanie Wiand, who are both truly awful at their jobs. A highlight of the pre-show is Man Mountain Rock. I love that guy! We also have a slew of pre-WrestleMania celebrities. Lawrence Taylor is at ringside and Pamela Anderson is one of the guest celebrity stars. Pammy was a big selling point by the time WrestleMania rolled around, as she married Tommy Lee in between and became a major star for a while. Of course she was already a Baywatch babe, but as anyone knows; if you pair up two big celebrities they become even more famous. Coliseum Video shows her arriving at the arena, greeted by the entire locker room, complete with porn star music. Hosts for the main show are Vince McMahon and Jerry Lawler.
