One memorable match can't save an awful show

King of the Ring: Semi-Finals

Hunter Hearst Helmsley (W/Chyna) Vs Ahmed Johnson

Hunter wins with the Pedigree. He advances to the finals. I didn't care for this match at all. It wasn't boring or anything like that, just pretty mediocre. Hunter wasn't good enough to carry a match at this juncture.

*1/2 out of 5

King of the Ring: Semi-Finals

Mankind Vs Jerry 'The King' Lawler

Mankind advances to the finals after winning with the mandible claw. This match gets marks, simply for Foley's crazy bumping. Most of the match is Mankind getting his ass kicked by Lawler. It went on too long.

*3/4 out of 5

Steve Austin attacks Brian Pillman from behind and sticks his head in a toilet. '

Goldust (W/Marlena) Vs Crush (W/The Nation of Domination)

Goldust wins with a DDT. This was a pretty boring match. It felt like a filler match and that's exactly what it was. Mediocre stuff all around.

*1/2 out of 5

Sycho Sid & The Legion of Doom Vs Owen Hart, The British Bulldog & Jim Neidhart

The Hart Foundation win after Owen Hart pins Sid with a sunset flip. I was excited about this match initially, but they didn't deliver very well. It moved too slowly for my liking. I'm surprised that Sid was pinned clean.

*1/2 out of 5

King of the Ring

Mankind Vs Hunter Hearst Helmsley (W/Chyna)

Helmsley wins the King of the Ring after a pedigree to Mankind. I'm never fond of Triple H accomplishing anything big. Never have been, never will be. That said, this match accomplished a couple of things. It made Mankind look like a warrior for never giving up and helped get him more over.

**1/4 out of 5

Bret Hart announces that he's coming back at In Your House: Canadian Stampede. He tries to do some color commentary for the Stone Cold and Shawn Michaels match, but he's forced out by WWE officials.

'Stone Cold' Steve Austin Vs Shawn Michaels

Both men get disqualified after they attack referees. This is the match that saves this entire PPV. If it wasn't for this match, this PPV would one of the worst of all time. I think this match is as good the match they had at Wrestlemania 14, or at least pretty close to it. As good as this match is, the finish sucks.

**** out of 5

WWF Championship

The Undertaker (C) (W/Paul Bearer) Vs Farooq (W/The Nation of Domination)

The Undertaker wins with a tombstone. After the match, Ahmed Johnson turns heel by delivering a Pearl River Plunge to The Undertaker. Well, I expected a lot worse. It's not a good match, but I did expect worse. It was better than I remembered.

** out of 5

There is one good match on this entire show! Triple H Vs Mankind is OK, but that's about it. Everything else is completely forgettable. I have to give this PPV a big thumbs down.

3/10
