The two WWF Championship bouts at this event came about as a result of Lex Luger and Bret Hart being declared co-winners of the 1994 Royal Rumble. The plan was to have one man face off against reigning WWF Champion Yokozuna while the other wrestled “suitable competition” in a separate bout earlier on the card. The person who emerged from the first WWF Championship bout as WWF Champion would then face off against the other wrestler (regardless of whether he won or lost) in the second WWF Championship bout of the evening. Approximately one month prior to the event, a (kayfabe) coin toss was won by Lex Luger, granting him the opportunity of having the first title shot. Had Bret Hart won the coin toss, Lex Luger’s first match would have been against Crush instead.
