2. Kings Court w/ The Undertaker: Lawler opens the segment laughing about his attack on Roddy Piper to allow him to stay on as the host of Kings Court. Lawler taunts Piper by saying that he put the Hot Rod in his place and Lawler proved that he is a man of his word. Lawler proceeds to say that he has the perfect guest for the newest edition of Kings Court and that is the NEW WWF World Champion the Undertaker and Paul Bearer! Bearer and Taker slowly make their way down to the ring as the crowd makes it clear they are happy to see a new champion. Lawler isn’t all that impressed as Taker steps into the ring. Lawler sarcastically gives Taker props for winning the championship and asks what he will do now as champion. Bearer tells Lawler that the Undertaker put Luger’s reign to rest and they are open to any man to step forth and challenge for the gold. However, for any man who dares to challenge the Undertaker, they will need to be assured they will meet their maker. Undertaker steps forward and says “If you wish to be a champion, be warned that it may be your very last wish.” Lawler slowly takes the microphone away and is clearly nervous to hear that news.

6. Bam-Bam Bigelow Interview: Jim Ross conducted an interview with Bam-Bam Bigelow who proved he was a tougher man against Razor Ramon last night at WrestleMania X. Bigelow starts off by telling Ross that he showed the WWF that Ramon is nothing more than a fraud. He believes Ramon will never show his face in the WWF again out of embarrassment that he was beaten so easily. Ross doubts that will be the case, but he also asks Bigelow what he has in store now. Bigelow tells Ross that while he was the victor last night, he is upset over what happened at the end of the night. You see, the Undertaker won the WWF World Championship and Bigelow is none to pleased to see a man he dominated for six months hold a championship that belongs around his waist. Bigelow finishes off by saying “Hey Dead Man… you’re a deadman walking. The Beast is coming for that gold!”

Hogan wants to apologize to all the WWF fans for letting them all down and losing to the snake Ric Flair and his mysterious masked man. Hogan tells us that he isn’t going to rest into he gets Flair in the ring and beats him like the punk that he is and finding out who the mysterious masked man. Hogan knows that Flair isn’t in the building because he is celebrating the victory, which is fine by him. Hogan finishes off saying that once the celebration ends, Hogan will bring Flair back down to reality and truly prove who the better man really is!

Luger knows that he has a rematch clause but he says that the Undertaker is a freak of nature and feels no pain. Luger believes the only way he can beat the Undertaker and reclaim his championship is by putting him six feet under. Ross appears to be confused and asks what Luger is meaning. Luger looks at Ross after thinking for a moment. Luger responds that the only way he can beat the Undertaker is by beating him at his own game. “Ross, I mean I’d have to beat the Undertaker so badly I could put him in a casket and be done with him. That’s how I would be able to get my belt back.” Ross asks if Luger is issuing a challenge to the new champion to a casket match, but Luger thinks in the ring before leaving shaking his head confused as to what he is thinking about.
3. IRS defeated PJ Walker in 2:06 following a lariat.
4. Carlos Vega Vignette: A video promoting a new talent named Carlos Vega is shown. Vega is sitting in a leather chair, smoking a cigar as the video begins. Vega tells us that he was the man that brought Razor Ramon into the Cuban thug life, but Razor put them to shame at WrestleMania.

6. Bret Hart Interview: Vince McMahon introduces Bret Hart for an interview. Bret is in a good mood after beating Ted DiBiase at WrestleMania X to reclaim the Hart Family house and free his family from being under control of the evil DiBiase. Bret admits that beating DiBiase and having him locked in the Sharpshooter was one of the best feelings he has ever felt. Ross notes that the British Bulldog appears to have some issues with DiBiase considering his wife Diana was also a victim of DiBiase’s actions. Bret tells Ross that while he got some measure of revenge on DiBiase, he supports Bulldog in his quest to take care of DiBiase for his own sanity. Hart finishes off saying that DiBiase is going to learn that you don’t mess with the Hart Family.

DiBiase describes his venture with Diana and notes how soft her skin was and how wet her lips were. Ted says that part of him misses that and knows that every time that Bulldog kisses her now, Diana will have a lasting memory of DiBiase. McMahon reminds DiBiase that Bulldog is coming for Ted, but DiBiase isn’t fazed. DiBiase tells Vince that he is going to put the dog to sleep and take his trophy wife too! Ted finishes off the segment with his trademark laugh.
6. Crush defeated Jeff Erickson in 2:55 with the Kona Vice.
7. Steiner Brothers Interview: We hear comments from the former WWF World Tag Team Champions Rick and Scott Steiner. They keep it short and simple.
