- Royal Rumble 1995: Lawrence Taylor was Diesel’s guest sitting in the front row and was pushed by Bam Bam Bigelow..
- February 1995: Bam Bam Bigelow continues to insult and mock Larence Taylor challenging him to a match at Wrestlemania..
- April 2, 1995: Lawrence Taylor faces Bam Bam Bigelow at Wrestlemania XI. Everyone expected a fluff match with lots of shoving and perhaps a token bodyslam or two. Instead, it turns out to be one of the most impressive matches by a non pro wrestler in years. Taylor and Bigelow hold nothing back as they trade devastating and high risk moves. Taylor finally prevails and pins Bigelow after a grueling and highly entertaining 11 minutes and 42 seconds. However, Taylor pays the price with what appears to be a real injury, a dislocated shoulder.
