On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (January 22, 1995) – WWF Royal Rumble 1995

Royal Rumble
On this day in Pro Wrestling history on January 22, 1995, the World Wrestling Federation aired their annual ‘Royal Rumble’ event LIVE on PPV from the Sun Dome in Tampa, Florida.

With only a total match-time of 38 minutes and 41 seconds, this was by far the shortest Royal Rumble match in WWF/E history.

That was only possible because they shortened the intervals, so another wrestler entered every 60 seconds.

Below are the results from the PPV:

• WWF Intercontinental Championship
Jeff Jarrett def. Razor Ramon (c)

• The Undertaker def. Irwin R. Schyster

• WWF World Heavyweight Championship
Diesel (c) wrerstled Bret Hart to a draw

• Vacant WWF Tag Team Championship
1–2–3 Kid & Bob Holly def. Bam Bam Bigelow and Tatanka

• Shawn Michaels won the 30-man Royal Rumble match
