Rightful winner: Bret "Hit Man" Hart (18).
However, since the referees didn't see Steve Austin being thrown out of the ring (they had their hands full with getting Mankind out), he was judged as the winner, and was to be given a title shot at Wrestlemania XIII. However, instead of that, a "final four" match was setup at In Your House XIII.

Televised in its entirety 1997-03-01 on DSF. In the US, partly aired as Monday Night Raw 1997-03-03, and WWF Superstars 1997-03-09.
Between these two matches, German ring-announcer and commentator Carsten Schaeffer, with help of Billy Gunn, awarded a lucky winner with a DF1 digital receiver for the combined DSF/DF1 competition that had run through the Deutschland Xpress Tour.
Here The Honky Tonk Man arrived, apparently helping out in the American commentator position.
In the pause that now followed, we were informed about the most recent developments in the WWF championship ranks. In the arena, one could hear that through the commentators' microphones, Honky Tonk Man was singing (or whatever).
Ahmed Johnson was interviewed by Carsten Schaefer, and being asked if he would accept Faarooq's challenge for a match at Wrestlemania XIII. Ahmed accepted, dedicating the match to his German fans, but he said that this time, he wouldn't be alone.
