Battle for the vacated WCW World Heavyweight Championship!
27 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

To start off SuperBrawl VIII, the former TV Champ, Booker T., confronted Rick Martel, for his title. Martel was beaten, and that's when Perry Saturn came in. But Booker T. pinned him with the 1 2 3! It was over.

Next, the Disco Inferno fought La Parka. The Disco Inferno won when La Parka hit his head on his own chair.

Then, there was a special added match unadvertised. This is between Brad Armstrong with a one-loss record against undefeated wrestler Goldberg! Goldberg won with his trademark maneuvers, the Spear and the Jackhammer!!

After that was a Title Vs. Mask Match for the WCW World Cruiserweight Championship between Juventud Guerrera and Cruiserweight Champion, Chris Jericho. Guerrera would've won the title and kept his mask on his face, if Jericho hadn't grabbed the rope from the 450 Splash while the referee wasn't looking. Then Jericho grabbed him in his Lion Tamer submission hold. He ripped the mask from Guerrera, revealing his face.

The next match was between the now deceased British Bulldog and Steve "Mongo" McMichael. The Bulldog won by submission, but Mongo said he didn't give up.

Then, SuperBrawl VIII continued with a contest for the WCW United States Heavyweight Championship between the "Canadian Crippler" Chris Benoit and US Champion, "Diamond" Dallas Page. Page had achieved victory, thanks to the Diamond Cutter.

The next match was a non-disqualification match between Randy "Macho Man" Savage, representing the New World Order (nWo), and the "Total Package" Lex Luger. When Luger had done the Torture Rack on the Macho Man, the now dead Miss Elizabeth attacked him in the eyes. Just then, the entire nWo attacked BOTH men. Then when Luger did the Torture Rack a second time, "Hollywood" Hulk Hogan, the leader, pulled back his henchmen and said he was glad that Savage lost.

The following bout was for the unified WCW World Tag Team Championship between the Outsiders, Kevin Nash and Scott Hall with Dusty Rhodes, and the Steiner Bros., Rick and Scott with Ted DiBiase. During the match, when the Steiners were doing their trademark pose, Scott had DOUBLE-AX-HANDLED HIS OWN BROTHER, RICK!!! That was one of the most horrible moments in the history of professional wrestling. Mercifully, it was over when Scott Hall used the Outsider's Edge on Rick.

The next bout was the Main Event of SuperBrawl VIII for the vacant, undisputed WCW World Heavyweight Championship between Sting and Hulk Hogan. When Sting used his Stinger Splash on Hogan, he accidentally creamed Referee Charles Robinson, replacing him with Nick Patrick. Later, when Sting used the Scorpion Death Drop, Hogan kicked the ref in the gut. The whole nWo attacked Sting, but the Macho Man Randy Savage attacked Hulk Hogan with a spray can, knocking him unconscious. Sting had pinned Hogan! At that moment, Sting was the undisputed Heavyweight Champion of the World!!
