I was watching this on the WWE Network and was wondering what the point was of the masked knights.

More to the point, was it ever explained in the build toward the PPV? I mean, why did Lawler choose masked unknowns to be on his team, rather than go with guys who were already on the roster?

I think it was just to have unknowns job to the Harts to build towards Owen vs Bret. Meant probably more if it was Lawler than Michaels.

Remember that the roster at the time was really, really weak. Three masked dudes had more credibility than who they actually were (was it Glen Jacobs, Valentine and ???)

Horowitz was the other.

Some people say it was Jeff Gaylord and not Jacobs.

Yea it was Jeff Gaylord, not Glen Jacobs.

Terry Funk was scheduled to be one of the Knights. But he actually walked out instead of doing it.

Lawler getting pulled really killed the gimmick of the whole match anyway.  Not that it was great to begin with, but Michaels walking around with knights made no sense at all.
