Cactus Jack Manson VS. Norman "The Lunatic" Wrestlewar 1990
Its a fun watch just because its so early in Jack's career and you can see what a decent worker he is even here. Some effective bumps too. The match itself is dated outside of those bumps. **

U.S Tag Title Match: The Freebirds (c) VS. Robert Gibson and The Z-Man
Pretty solid opening match. Dragged a bit in places. Mostly enjoyable and good crowd heat. Double A's promo before the match is worth checking out too:mark: **1/2

This is a bit of a forgettable gem and note worthy because you didn't see the Rocker often in singles action, and with Jannetty the lesser of the two it's impressive just how good this match is. They told a good, the pacing was good, and there were some tight near falls and impressive high spots. Martel's selling was excellent too. Liked the finish. I'd put this second only Marty's rumble 93 match with Shawn as his best singles match. Also check out the vid for those Brother Love segments with Jake and Martel:mark: ***1/2

Forgettable mid-card filler match with a weak finish. Z-Man and Taylor had a much better match on a episode of WorldWide the following year. Cool seeing a pre-WWF Terri as Alexandra York. IMO a underrated gimmick. **

Bret Hart VS. Diesel [C] WWF Title match, Royal Rumble 1995
This is probably my least favourite of their three PPV matches. But its a good example of how to do a good face vs. face match. Bret's extra aggression is a good way to sell how badly he wants the title without turning him heel. Not so keen on the false finishes. But pretty great anyway. ***1/2

WWF Royal Rumble match 1995
One of the weakest rumble matches ever. Having guys come out every 60 secs is overkill. You can see how thin the talent roster was in 95 with all the bland jobbers involved. There's very little drama besides HBK's performance and the finish. I did enjoy Bret taking revenge on those who had screwed him earlier. **
