Royal Rumble ’93
Arnold Furious: 1993 must have been a worrying year for Vince McMahon. Not only was he facing increasing pressure from the US government over steroid allegations, but also his talent roster was getting thin. Going into the Royal Rumble event there were only four realistic winners. Those being Ric Flair, who won it the previous year but was on the outs, Randy Savage, the former champion, The Undertaker and Yokozuna. Savage was winding his career down and Taker was about to become embroiled in a feud with Giant Gonzalez. The lack of depth was further demonstrated by Razor Ramon securing a PPV title shot after mere months in the company. It’s not like he was setting the world on fire, either.
