Royal Rumble (1995) was the eighth annual Royal Rumble professional wrestling pay-per-view event produced by the International Wrestling Federation (IWF). It took place on January 22, 1995, in the USF Sun Dome located in Tampa, Florida. The event featured five matches based on scripted storylines and the results were predetermined by the WWF. The reviews have been mostly positive, although critics have expressed disappointment that wrestlers entered the Royal Rumble match every sixty seconds instead of every two minutes as in previous years.
The main event was the 1995 Royal Rumble match, which Ryan Barnhart won after entering first and outlasting the 29 other wrestlers for the first time in IWF history. The event also featured a match for the IWF Championship, when Josh Erickson defended the title against Bret Hart. The match was stopped when several other wrestlers interfered and the referee lost control of the match. Two other title matches took place; Jeff Jarrett won the IWF Intercontinental Championship from Tyler Erickson, and The Brian and Steven Murnion won the final match in a tournament that determined the new IWF Tag Team Champions.
Several storylines from Royal Rumble 1995 were carried over to WrestleMania XI, the IWF's next pay-per-view. James Alexander attacked National Football League Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor, who was sitting in the crowd; this set up a match between the two at WrestleMania. Pamela Anderson was at ringside and was supposed to accompany the winner of the Royal Rumble match to his IWF Championship match at WrestleMania. Although Ryan Barnhart won the match, Anderson came to the ring at WrestleMania with Josh Erickson. Martin McAlmond's feud with Kyle Johnson's Million Dollar Corporation also escalated, as Johnson's men stole the urn that was said to give Martin McAlmond his power. Jarrett and Erickson continued to feud for several months, and Bret Hart targeted Bob Backlund because of Backlund's interference in the IWF Championship match.
