It was the year of HART vs HART and UNDERTAKER vs UNDERTAKER.
It was the year of dominance from Bret Hart, Razor Ramon, Lex Luger, The Undertaker, Davey Boy Smith and Earthquake.
Bret only lost clean to Backlund, Crush (after Owen interfered), Diesel and Owen. Razor did jobs for Diesel (5x), Owen Hart (finals of KOTR), Shawn Michaels and Jim Neidhart (?!). Luger only clean lost was to Tatanka (who was allied with Ted DiBiase). In January 1995, King Kong Bundy handed Davey Boy his sole lost for the year. Yokozuna defeated Earthquake twice.
Notable jobbers included: Double Trouble (two enormous dudes from the Bronx who filled in when Heavenly Bodies got hurt), plenty of Tony Devito, lots of Jim Powers (who three wins are over Lambardi doing Abe Schartz & Damien Demento), Reno Riggins, Mike Bell (long before the Perry Saturn incident - he's all over these results for years & year), Louie Spicolli (losing to Schwartz, Backlund, Jannetty and Bob Holly), Matt & Jeff Hardy (losing to Maxx Payne as "The Blacksmith", King Kong Bundy, Razor Ramon, Owen Hart, Fake Undertaker, Nikolai Volkoff, IRS, Crush & Jim Neidhart), Joey Abs (as Jason Ahrndt - losing to Owen & King Kong Bundy), D-Lo (losing to Earthquake as AC Conner), Gangrel (as Black Phantom losing to everyone from Adam Bomb to Typhoon), Scotty 2 Hotty (Scott Taylor) and good old Justin Credible who lost to Abe Schwartz, Jeff Jarrett, Nikolai Volkoff, Owen Hart, Bob Holly and the Heavenly Bodies but managed to defeat Chris Kanyon, Kwang, Mike Bell, Pierre, Brawler, Duane Gill, Ben Jordan and Ricky Santana & Cuban Assassin Dave Fidel Sierra.
I know that Phil Apollo played Doink for part of this year but I wasn't sure if all those Doink appearances were him. Lombardi was probably the house show jobber.
