Vince, I was there when this Rumble went down. It was the first PPV in Albany, and it would take 14 years before I'd see a 2nd one. Anyway, I can't recall what the sitch was with Mr. Perfect and/or Bret Hart that left them out of the Rumble. However, I do remember seeing Roddy Piper win his first championship with the then-WWF, beating the Mountie to win the IC title. Ric Flair got help from the most unlikely of sources to win the title and the Rumble, and the last memory of that night, sadly, was a disabled fellow accusing Flair of cheating, which clearly was not the case.

Thanks. That must have been a cool experience to see it live. As a side note, my ancestors lived in Troy, NY from 1850-1855.
