Yes, you're exactly right about the Harley Race vs. King Haku match at Royal Rumble '89. Race was the face by default. There was an article hyping this match also in an old WWF Magazine around this time. I've watched the Race-Haku match a ton of times. It's not perfect but I like it, mostly for the mystique around it due to it being edited off of the VHS release. I also noticed the line that Gorilla mentioned about "A hush has fallen over The Summit". I also thought the line he said about Heenan taking an 85% cut of each of his wrestlers' pay was hysterical along with Jesse's reaction to it. It kind of seemed like Gorilla and Jesse were mostly burying Race during the end of the match. There was way too much filler on the rest of the show, especially with umpteen segments of Rumble participants. The "Super Posedown" was a waste of time. The opening 6-man tag was good. The women's match was kind of boring and lead nowhere following this show since the Women's Title was abandoned a short time later, as Sherri would a few months later morph into the "Queen". I thought it was cool that the legendary Hall of Famer "Big" John Studd was the Rumble winner, which was the crowning moment of his WWF career, even though he left shortly after Wrestlemania V. I also liked Demolition starting the Rumble and the advancement of The Mega-Powers as they began to explode a few weeks later, planting the seeds for Wrestlemania V. I give the '89 Rumble a B+, mostly for the Race-Haku match, the opening 6-man, and the Rumble.
