Forget 'Age in the Cage' Eddie and Rey stole the show.

The Ultimo Dragon Vs Yuji Nagata (W/Sonny Onoo)

Nagata wins with an arm bar..... This was a rather tepid opener. Nagata's skill set is marginal at best and there wasn't that much Dragon could do with him. In keeps The Dragon's quest for revenge on Sonny Onoo going, but they picked the wrong winner here.

** out of 5

Chris Jericho Vs Gedo

Jericho wins with the Walls of Jericho. This was a decent match between the two. I'm super glad Jericho won. I would have flipped out if Gedo won. There was one really bad botch where Jericho tried a super frankensteiner from the top rope and ended up botching it, and landing straight on his head.

**1/2 out of 5

Cruiserweight Title

Eddie Guerrero (C) Vs Rey Mysterio

Mysterio wins the title by countering a Razor's Edge from the top into a hurricanrana. This match was everything it was advertised to be. Fast, furious, and extremely exciting. As much as I have gotten tired of him, Mysterio was incredible in the ring at this juncture and I definitely respect him. What a match!

****1/4 out of 5

Hollywood Hogan claims he won't wrestle Roddy Piper tonight until Sting is barred from the building.

Steve McMichael Vs Alex Wright (W/Debra)

If McMichael wins, Debra must leave WCW. Alex Wright wins after Goldberg costs McMichael the match. Goldberg receives McMichael's superbowl ring, then spears and Jackhammers Alex Wright. The booking of Goldberg was perfect here. He's neither heel or face. He's just a badass that will destroy everything in sight. The match sucked.

*1/4 out of 5

Jacqueline Vs Disco Inferno

Jacqueline wins after scooping up Inferno from behind. It wasn't a very good match, but I got immense gratification from watching Jacqueline beat up Disco. It kinda makes the T.V title look like a joke, but it was worth it. Jacqueline even gave him a DDT!

*1/2 out of 5

United States Title

Curt Hennig (C) Vs Ric Flair

Hennig wins by DQ after Flair hits the referee. Flair attacks Hennig some more after the match until officials, Konnan, and Vincent run down to yank Hennig out of there. Well, this was a tad disappointing. Don't get me wrong, it's an above average match, but I've seen what these two can do. They put on four star match on an episode of Raw in 93. The intensity was good, the execution was off at times.

**3/4 out of 5

J.J Dillon announces that Hogan WILL wrestle Roddy Piper tonight. Bischoff comes out to protest, but it doesn't do much good. Dillon says if Bischoff sees Sting tonight, it'll be in his nightmares.

Lex Luger Vs Scott Hall

Larry Zbyszko is the guest referee. Hall initially wins after Syxx interferes, but Zbyzsko sees the replay and restarts the match. Luger wins with the Torture Rack, but gets beat up by Bischoff, Hall, and Syxx after the match. The match itself was rather below average, but I loved Zbyszko putting Syxx in a choke hold and kicking some ass. The crowd ate it up as well.

*1/2 out of 5

Sudden Death Match (Last Man Standing)

'Macho Man' Randy Savage (W/Elizabeth) Vs DDP (W/Kimberly)

Hogan dressed up as Sting, screws over DDP to give Savage the win. This match was kinda underwhelming. There weren't many big spots and it was all pretty standard stuff. Both looked very strong in the match and were protected. I didn't expect a classic, but I expected more than I got. A decent, but disappointing bout.

**1/2 out of 5

Steel Cage Match

'Hollywood' Hulk Hogan Vs 'Rowdy' Roddy Piper

Piper wins with the sleeper hold. Piper gets tied up to the cage afterwards and beaten to a pulp. This was a brutal main event. It wasn't boring, just really bad. Both guys were well past their prime and it showed here. There were a couple of cool moments, such as Hogan and Piper fighting on top of the cage, and Savage jumping off the top of the cage with a double axe handle. A fan climbed the cage and got his ass kicked by Hogan and Savage.

*1/4 out of 5

Overall, the only reason to see this PPV is for the Cruiserweight title match. Believe me, you aren't really missing anything else. It's an average PPV and I think even that is being generous.

5/10
