7 Things You Should Know About WWE Royal Rumble 1994

3. Yokozuna Won An Awful Casket Match For The WWE Title

The Casket Match had a lot of hype because there was only one of them televised at Survivor Series 1992 when Undertaker beat Kamala. This was the first time with the WWE Title on the line and there was a thought that Yokozuna was scared of Undertaker, so there was a feeling there might be a title change. They had a decent back and forth match that was fine for a couple of big guys at least in the early going. We didn't expect it to be a technical classic. It looked like Yoko might win, but then Undertaker came back and dominated Yoko. When Undertaker tried to give Yoko a Chokeslam it looked awful because he could barely lift him up, but a jumping DDT was effective. Just when it looked like Undertaker was going to win, the interference started. Undertaker did his best to fight everybody, but he wasn't able to completely stop all of them. Yoko ended up grabbing the urn from Paul Bearer and attacked Undertaker with it. When the urn was opened, there was green smoke coming out of it. Vince McMahon proclaimed on commentary: €œIt would appear that the power of the urn is escaping.€ That was their way of saying that Undertaker was losing his ability to fight back. It took several heels to slow down Undertaker. Here's a listing of all of them: Crush, Kabuki, Tenryu, Bam Bam Bigelow, Adam Bomb, Jeff Jarrett, Samu, Fatu (Rikishi) and Diesel. It was 10 men counting Yokozuna, who looked absolutely gassed. Nobody helped Undertaker. When the match was over and Undertaker was in the casket, more smoke emerged from the casket and he did a promo (that was shown on the video screen) saying that it wasn€™t going to be the end of the Undertaker. The fans cheered for a lot of it, but it was still really cheesy.
