SUNDOME / TAMPA, FL
Hosted by Vince McMahon, “Rowdy” Roddy Piper & Honky Tonk Man
Earthquake (w/ Jimmy Hart) vs. Randy Hunter
• Earthquake wins with the sitdown splash [1:42]
– Randy Hunter is working a really subtle child molester gimmick tonight
– Dino Bravo cuts an insert promo during the match to once again really hammer home the point, if you don’t get it already, that the Royal Rumble is every man for himself, and even friends can turn on eachother
– The crowd chants for Hogan, but he ain’t showing up to a Superstars taping. He’s got ice cream bars to pose for. Get real, Tampa, Florida.
– After the match, Earthquake hits Hunter with the sitdown splash again, and Hunter has to be taken away on a stretcher
