5.0 out of 5 stars Please ignore the other review.
I feel that justice must be done, the other review by that Jab fellow is actually of the 1999 Royal Rumble (which was far from boring and the match between The Rock and Mankind is unmissable), the 1998 Royal Rumble was one of the greatest ever, with Shawn Micheals on killer form and all 3 "Faces of Foley" made appearences.

3.0 out of 5 stars Austin Earns His Title Shot
Right, let's take a look; The Rock vs. Ken Shamrock has an entertaining conclusion, but id a bit boring, and Vader's battle with Goldust pretty much sucks. There's some other pre-Rumble rubbish as well, but the HBK/Undertaker Casket Match looks ever so slightly like it was signed as a kind of spoof of Undertaker's terrible casket match with Yokozuna at the '94 Rumble...

4.0 out of 5 stars Royal Rumble 1998, 20 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: WWF: Royal Rumble 1998 [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Match 1:
Goldust vs. Vader

Not a bad start, not a great start. There were good spells in this match and Vader always gets the crowd going. Devastating finish to the match.

Match 2:
Six Man Tag Team Match
Max Mini, Nova & Mosaic vs. El Torino, Battalion & Tarantula

A somewhat unique match, in which all of these competitors are all...shall we say, vertically challenged? (midgets). However, I really enjoyed watching these little guys go at it. Max Mini is the world's smallest ever athlete yet his abilities know no bounds. All 6 guys seize the opportunity at the rumble. Very enjoyable.

Match 3:
Intercontinental Championship
The Rock (c) vs. Ken Shamrock

These guys have definitely had better matches than this one. Not terrible, but their match at Wrestlemania XIV is strides above. Controversial ending.

Match 4:
Tag Team Championships
New Age Outlaws (c) vs. Legion of Doom

Again, not a terrible match but nothing too exciting. LOD dominate throughout most of this one. Yet again, another controversial ending.

Match 5:
The Royal Rumble Match

Not bad at all. Great entertainment in this one and it's always good to see some of the midcard superstars getting some decent ringtime in a rumble match unlike the present day rumbles. Definitely worth a watch. Only flaw in this one is the predictable ending.

Match 6:
Casket Match for WWF Championship
Shawn Michaels (c) vs. Undertaker

Thoroughly enjoyable match. Both men can be credited for their wide range of skills in all departments making this a very open, balanced and unpredictable match. Another surprise ending which in my opinion, spoils this match a little. But still, a highly entertaining match, a must watch.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Fine Event, 29 Oct 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: WWF: Royal Rumble 1998 [VHS] (VHS Tape)
All in all, the 1998 Rumble was a fine event. The championsip match is highly watchable and the New Age Outlaws as usual prove very entertaining against the LOD. There are of course exceptions, most notably the six man midget match (an obvious time filler and excuse to wheel Sunny out as guest referee) and "The Artist Formally Known As Goldust", as good an indicator as any that Vince Mcmahon's federation was suffering a distinct lack of ideas on the character front. The Rumble match itself is excellent from start to finish even if the outcome is slightly predictable. Cactus Jack and Terry Funk provide some amusing moments early on and its nice to see 30 recognisable wrestlers as opposed to the 10 or so unknowns who were required to fill the slots the previous year. Overall this event is vey good indeed - by no means perfect but definately worth a look.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great PPV in all, 16 July 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: WWF: Royal Rumble 1998 [VHS] (VHS Tape)
It was'nt the best PPV ever, but it was good. It starts off with Vader v Goldust in the lamest match of 1998. Then a load of dwarfs fight in a pretty boring match with the only possible move being the dragon screw. Then it gets better. The Rock v Ken Shamrock is excellent if you like a bit of action. LOD v Outlaws is just as good. Then we get on to the Royal Rumble. Good, but not the best. It ends in a great title fight. HBK v Undertaker in a casket match with an explosive ending. Overall 4/5

3.0 out of 5 stars Austin Earns His Title Shot, 20 April 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: WWF: Royal Rumble 1998 [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Right, let's take a look; The Rock vs. Ken Shamrock has an entertaining conclusion, but id a bit boring, and Vader's battle with Goldust pretty much sucks. There's some other pre-Rumble rubbish as well, but the HBK/Undertaker Casket Match looks ever so slightly like it was signed as a kind of spoof of Undertaker's terrible casket match with Yokozuna at the '94 Rumble. It's far better than the Yokozuna match anyway, and it's a pretty good match. This is the bout were HBK gets thrown akwardly onto the casket and injures his back which causes his retirement a few months later. tHen, there's the Rumble itself. This is Stone Cold's moment of glory, in which he demolishes all opponents, last eliminating his bitter enemy, The Rock. The Rumble also includes the entrance of all three faces of Foley, which is funny! A good PPV, any Stone Cold, HBK, Mankind or Undertaker fan should click it and buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Royal Rumble 1998 - arguably the greatest PPV ever?, 30 Oct 2001
This review is from: WWF: Royal Rumble 1998 [VHS] (VHS Tape)
I was recommended Rumble 98 as I am a huge fan of the annual PPv, and I was not disappointed!!
There is as ever matches before; the intercontinental title is between The Rock (champion) and Ken Shamrock, the culmination of a rivalry with a controversial ending. Vader v Goldust opens the event and is a matchup of two heavyweights, but unfortunately is a bit short and one-sided. The tag team titles are on the line as champions the New Age Outlaws take on the Legion of Doom, all I can say is if you are an LOD fan you do not want to miss out on this one! There is a totally pointless but entertaining match between 6 mexican dwarves, but Sunny referees so there is something to watch.
The WWF title is on the line as Shawn Michaels (champion) and The Undertaker go head to head in a casket match, the match ends brilliantly but the HBK and the deadman never really get any wrestling going, but it is real classic action from 2 of the best superstars in WWF history.
As for the rumble, this features stars that are still around today such as Stone Cold, Steve Blackman, Mick Foley and all five members of the Nation of Domination. There is the now-departed Kurrgan, Headbangers, Jeff Jarrett, Marc Mero and Sable, DOA and the late Owen Hart among many others. The end is a little predictable but the journey to the end of the rumble is brilliantly entertaining.
Well 1998 was recommended and I gladly appreciate it, if you are a fan of the dark side of WWF that it was then, then go for this. And look out for the NWO shirts too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Royal Rumble 1998, 25 Jun 2004
This review is from: WWF: Royal Rumble 1998 [VHS] (VHS Tape)
The whole event was a bit dissapointing until the Rock vs Ken Shamrock match for I.C championship,this match fast and powerful,Shamrock ruled the match until the Nation of Domination came and got the win for The Rock.
Shawn Michaels(CH) vs Undertaker in a Caskit match
This match started slow but really picked up after about 10 minutes,Undertaker ruled the match for most of it until Triple H interfered and got Michaels the win, But the ending is brilliant!! Undertaker BURNS in HELL!!!!!!!!!!!
