Arguably the greatet moment of the match is when Flair dumps the Bossman (or whoever) and is alone in the ring, and Brain starts screaming that Flair has won while Gorilla chastises him.
The then buzzer goes, the new IC champ Piper comes running out like a maniac, crowd explodes, Flair sinks to his knees to start begging for mercy.
The timing was perfect.
Heenan's commentary that whole match is great. When the Barbarian comes out he says (paraphrasing)....when I managed him he didn't even like me, he isn't a nice guy, he is called the barbarian he isn't a barber on his days off....classic
Agreed when Piper came out and when Savage came out and got his hand on Jake Roberts those pops were huge from the NY crowd. Biggest pop might be when Hogan got eliminated. I will have to rewatch.

I could watch Rumble 1992 every day. Love it and Heenan's commentary made is so much better. I think it was Perfect when he came in and Heenan was praising him up and down, then he starts attacking Flair and Heenan is calling him so many names and saying things like "I didn't like him anyway". So funny.
Royal Rumble '92 and SummerSlam '92 are my all time favorite PPVs. The Mountie was such a bitch (he was just as shit when he was part of the Rougeau Brothers and the Quebecers), it was a glorious Piper moment. I've always thought The Mountie's stick was stupid as fuck, I mean, I know you obviously wouldn't be able to literally shock someone with it, but, did they really need to make it so obvious that it was just a sound they blared over the speakers from somewhere backstage? Fuck The Mountie, HE DIDN'T GET HIS MAN THAT DAY.
Oi, don't knock The Mountie, The Mountie was very cool and he did often get his man ... apart from those times when he didn't (IE that day and The Big Boss Man for example) haha
Don't worry Heff, we can still have a nice Thanksgiving. I bought us a nice big vegetarian turkey. It'll be delicious!
