WWF TITLE MATCH
Sycho Sid defeated Shawn Michaels w/Jose Lothario to win the WWF Heavyweight title!: Sycho Sid smashed Jose Lotherio with a WWF camera and then got hit with an HBK superkick. Shawn Michaels went to check on his mentor at ringside, who was clutching his chest (heart attack). Sid capitalized and pulled Michaels back into the ring, leading to the referee getting knocked out. Sid then smashed the camera over the back of Shawn Michaels. Sid tossed Michaels into the ring, powerbombed him, and scored the pinfall to win the title! Jose Lothario was carried out on a stretcher..
