2. Hunter Hearst Helmsley defeated Bob Holly in 6:33 following the Pedigree.
3. Kings Court w/ Ron Simmons & Jack Tunney: Jerry Lawler welcomes everyone to the greatest talk show in entertainment history, Kings Court. Lawler notes that last night, there was a man who never once backed down from the supernatural that is the Undertaker, and by doing so, that man was able to defeat the Undertaker in the middle of the ring and stake claim in being the number one contender to the WWF World Championship. Lawler introduces that man, who is Ron Simmons. Simmons makes his way down to the ring on his own and tells Lawler that for months he had been talking about how he should be the WWF World Champion and his victory last night was him backing it up. Simmons demands that Jack Tunney smarten up and see that Ron Simmons deserves a chance because he has simply earned it. “I’ve beaten all the heroes and I’m gong to beat the biggest hero, Diesel, and take the WWF World Championship.” At this point, Jack Tunney makes his way down to the ring with a few officials to apparently have a discussion. Tunney notes that Simmons has been on quite a roll, but Tunney can’t just simply make Simmons the number one contender. However, what Tunney can do is allow Simmons to compete in the 1995 King of the Ring tournament and earn a shot at the championship at the 1995 SummerSlam pay per view event. Simmons is not happy about this and claims that if he were one of the “tall, muscular ‘white boys’ that he’d been given a shot by now.” Simmons thinks that Tunney and the WWF have a vendetta against him because Simmons beat up Hulk Hogan so badly that Hogan hasn’t been back to the WWF nor returned any calls. Tunney insists that’s not the case. Tunney tells Simmons he can take the opportunity or wait longer for a title shot. Simmons backs Tunney into a corner after grabbing the microphone from Lawler and gets in Tunney’s face. Ron tells Tunney that he’s adding fuel to his fire and that whomever he faces in the tournament will not be his responsibility. Simmons concludes that “I need to be the WWF World Champion. This movement will never end until I am the WWF World Champion.”
4. Fatu defeated Duane Gill in 2:06 following a top rope big splash.
5. Rick Steiner Interview: Jim Ross had a sit-down interview with Rick Steiner earlier in the day. Rick talks about losing the steel cage match to Scott Steiner last night and thus lost the WWF Intercontinental Championship. Rick tells Ross that in the past day he’s thought about his recent actions and taking his frustrations out on his brother for his knee injury. Rick regrets taking out his anger on his brother, but that mean streak led him to success, and he wants to continue that success. Later on in the program, Rick is facing Bret Hart for a spot in the King of the Ring, and he’s going to continue to have a mean stream and accomplish the ultimate goal of becoming the WWF World Champion.
6. Jeff Jarrett defeated Barry Horowitz in 4:11 following a jumping DDT.
7. Diesel Interview & Confrontation: Jim Ross conducted an interview with the WWF World Champion, Diesel in the ring. Ross puts over Diesel for his hard fought victory at the pay per view last night over King Yokozuna. Diesel tells Ross that Yokozuna wasn’t an easy man to defeat, but Big Daddy Cool is on a roll and it’s going to be a long while before this truck can ever be stopped. At that point, DiBiase comes down the aisle way and is cutting off Diesel. DiBiase enters the ring and tells Diesel that Diesel has something he has always wanted. Of course, that is the WWF World Championship. DiBiase notes that he has retired from professional wrestling, but he has changed his career into a managerial position. DiBiase tells Diesel that with his money, he’s creating a Corporation. “You can it the Million Dollar Corporation.” The goal, is to hold all the gold in the WWF. DiBiase’s first target… is Diesel. As DiBiase continues to speak, Lex Luger comes into the ring from behind with a steel chair and whacks Diesel over the back with it dropping Diesel to a knee. Luger continues to pummel Diesel with right hands, but misses a clothesline as Diesel ducked. Diesel drops Luger with a big boot and goes after DiBiase in the corner. Diesel has DiBiase by the neck, but Psycho Sid comes running down and attacks Diesel from behind. Sid drops Diesel with a chokeslam and signals for the powerbomb. Sid manages to pick up Diesel and plants the champion with a sickening powerbomb. DiBiase gets on the microphone and tells Diesel “look at what money can buy!” As Sid and Luger stand over Diesel to end the segment.
8. The Kamikaze Kid & Marty Jannetty on a 7-team battle royal in 8:41 when Jannetty last eliminated Rick Martel. Thus, Kid and Jannetty have earned a WWF Tag Team Championship match at the King of the Ring on June 25th.
9. Shawn Michaels defeated PJ Walker in 3:09 following Sweet Chin Music. After the match, a manly voice is heard over the speakers and seductively singing Michaels’ theme song. Michaels doesn’t know what to make of this as he headed backstage.
10. Owen Hart Interview: Todd Pettengill interviewed Owen Hart backstage, who appeared to be in a chipper mood. Owen told everyone that he was better than his brother and he proved that last night by pinning him right in the middle of the ring. Owen does note that he’s not completely satisfied because he wants to make Bret submit and he’s going to do that. Owen looks into the camera and says “I beat you Bret, but I want to embarrass you.”
11. The British Bulldog defeated Mark Thomas in 2:55 following a running powerslam. After the match, Hakushi came down to ringside and taunted Bulldog from the floor signaling that Bulldog may be his first target in the WWF. Bulldog suggested that Hakushi enter the ring, but Hakushi walked backstage.
12. Bam-Bam Bigelow Interview: Backstage, Todd Pettengill interviewed Bam-Bam Bigelow regarding his upcoming match with Jerry Lawler on Superstars to qualify for the King of the Ring pay per view. Bigelow tells Pettengill that a fake king like Lawler doesn’t worry him what so ever. Bigelow knows that Lawler is shaking in his boots because Lawler isn’t going to be handle the fire that Bigelow is going to bring this weekend on Superstars.
