In response to the comments about whether an Undertaker-Razor Ramon match was ever considered for WrestleMania XI, it appears that the source used by James Dixon in Titan Sinking was a shoot interview with Scott Hall.  When I check Dixon’s notes, the interview comes from an “unknown source,” so yes, it looks like that story is quite dubious.

Men on a Mission’s post-match attack on the Smoking Gunns on The Action Zone is shown.

What the World Was Watching: Royal Rumble 1995

A limousine pulls into the backstage area and Pamela Anderson walks out.  She goes to her locker room as WWF wrestlers, led by Dink of all people, hoot and holler.  What?  You expected respectful manners out of a group of wrestlers?

Vince McMahon and Jerry Lawler are on the mic and they are live from Tampa, Florida.  What is hilarious about the opening is that Vince tries to introduce the Spanish announce team and Hugo Savinovich just stays seated with his back to the camera.
