BONE CRUNCHING ACTION PACKED CARD
10 March 2002 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Twelve years has elapsed since this event took place but in my mind it is the most action packed card that WCW ever promoted.

There is an awesome tag match between the Steiner Brothers and Doom and an exciting main event between Lex Luger and Ric Flair. We even get a guest appearance from movie star Robocop. All the matches are superb.

The true WCW is now defunct. The WWF brought WCW in mid 2001 but the current WCW is not it's own organisation-the WWF can do with it what it wishes. Watching this card brings back great memories. I believe 1990-1992 were the best years for WCW as the emphasis was on technical wrestling rather than the soap opera type wrestling we see today. I strongly recommend any fans of the late WCW to see this card if they haven't already.
