On this day in Pro Wrestling history on May 9, 1994, the World Wrestling Federation held an untelevised overseas house show at the Castle Hall in Osaka, Japan.

This live event included matches on the road to the ‘WWF King of the Ring 1994’ PPV.

The main-event was a legitimate Royal Rumble match, although with 18 participants instead of 30, which was won by The Undertaker.

The interesting thing about The Deadman entering and winning the Rumble was that he was on a hiatus from WWF TV at that point, after he was officially written off TV in January 1994 when he lost a casket match to Yokozuna at the annual Royal Rumble pay-per-view, and wouldn’t return to the World Wrestling Federation until SummerSlam in August. However, he wrestled a few dark-matches during his time away from the television product, including traveling overseas with the roster for this so called ‘WWF Mania Tour’.

Below are the complete results from this House Show:

– The 1-2-3 Kid defeated WWF Tag Team Champion Fatu

– WWF World Heavyweight Champion Bret Hart & Randy Savage defeated Owen Hart & Adam Bomb

– The Undertaker defeated Jinsei Shinzaki (later known as Hakushi)

– WWF Women’s Champion Alundra Blayze defeated Bull Nakano

– Genichiro Tenryu wrestled Yokozuna to a double count-out

– The Undertaker won an 18-man Royal Rumble

This wasn’t the only untelevised house show Royal Rumble in WWF/WWE history though, as there have been several ones back in the day, but the most famous ones were actually the 12-man Royal Rumble on October 4th 1987 (Winner: One Man Gang), because it was the very first time that they have tried the actual ‘Royal Rumble’ concept, as well as the 30-man MSG Royal Rumble on January 17th 1994 (Winner: Owen Hart) … and of course this one from Japan.
