Gorilla Monsoon and Roddy Piper are in charge of commentary, broadcasting live from Miami, Florida. According to profightdb.com, the show drew a crowd of 16,000. On pay-per-view the show drew a buyrate of 2.4, the equivalent of 440,000 buys. This was an increase over the previous year’s show, which drew a 2.0 buyrate (260,000 buys).
Since the Gulf War had commenced days earlier, the WWF plays the national anthem for the crowd. Piper is also amped up, wearing a yellow ribbon around his arm for the troops watching the show from the Middle East.
