United States Heavyweight Championship (No Disqualification)

Eddie Guerrero (C) Vs Dean Malenko

Syxx comes down with a camera and tries to steal Eddie's title. Eddie manages to stop him, but Dean drills Eddie with the camera to win the title. This was a damn fine opener! You really can't go wrong with two of the greatest wrestlers ever going out there and putting on a clinic. They told a great story in the ring with some wonderful psychology. If you love action, you'll get plenty of that as well. Rick Steiner was ambushed during the match.

****

The Ultimo Dragon (W/Sonny Onoo) Vs Psychosis

The Ultimo Dragon wins with a tiger suplex. Uncensored is starting off with a bang! This is another excellent match. These guys flew all over the place and delivered some amazing high-flying manuevers. One of the best things about WCW was the Cruiserweight division.

***1/2

DDP is out for an interview. Okerlund asks if it bothers DDP that Savage won't acknowledge him. DDP says the fans know who he (DDP) is. DDP tells Savage to snap into a Diamond Cutter. Randy Savage shows up at the announcer's table. Savage says he misjudged DDP and that he respects him. Randy Savage pulls out an adult magazine. He taunts DDP about DDP's wife Kimberly being the centerfold. Kimberly shows up with her dress having nWo all over it. Savage attacks DDP from behind. He spray paints nWo all over him. Miss Elizabeth spray paints nWo on the other side of Kimberly's dress. Elizabeth says Kimberly should be thrilled that the nWo loves her. Savage says DDP is the man.

Martial Arts Match

Mortis (W/James Vandenberg) Vs Glacier

Mortis is Chris Kanyon. Glacier wins. After the match, Wrath comes down to the ring and assaults Glacier. Believe it or not, this was actually a pretty good match! I'm being serious. I didn't expect much at all from these two and ended up being pleasantly surprised.

***1/4

Strap Match

Buff Bagwell Vs Scotty Riggs

Bagwell wins. This is the first stinker of the night. This was a boring strap match that featured nothing exciting about it what so ever. If you wanna see a really good strap match, watch Stone Cold face Savio Vega in a Caribbean Strap Match.

*1/2

Tornado Match

Harlem Heat (W/Sister Sherri) Vs Public Enemy

Harlem Heat wins after Steve McMichael screws Public Enemy over. This was a repetitive match that featured many of the same weapons used over and over. It got stale very quickly. It also went way too long.

*3/4

Television Championship

Prince Iaukea (C) Vs Rey Mysterio Jr.

It initially goes to a time limit draw, but Mysterio manages to convince Iaukea to put more time on the match and restart it. Iaukea wins. They were trying to legitimize Prince Iaukea, but it kinda backfired. There were boring chants scattered throughout the match. It wasn't boring, but it was average.

**

Three Team Match

Team nWo (Hollywood Hogan, Randy Savage & The Outsiders) Vs Team Piper (Roddy Piper, Chris Beniot, Jeff Jarrett & Steve McMichael) Vs Team WCW (Lex Luger, The Giant & Scott Steiner)

It's an elimination style match. The last man standing wins. If nWo wins, they can wrestle for any title any time they wish. If WCW wins, nWo will be forced to give back all their tltles to WCW, and can't wrestle for 3 years. If Piper's team wins, Roddy Piper will face Hollywood Hogan in a steel cage down the road. Hollywood Hogan is the last man standing to give team nWo the win, thanks to Dennis Rodman. This was a trainwreck of a match. That's all I'm gonna say.

*

Sting comes down from the rafters and ATTACKS the nWo. He gives Hollywood Hogan the Scorpion Deathdrop to end the show. The ending to the show is very redeeming. The crowd had waited for Sting to do this for a long time. They went crazy for Sting. An amazing ending to an entertaining PPV.

7/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

1. WCW U.S. Heavyweight Title Match: Dean Malenko Vs. Champ-Eddie Guerrero - Match was good. Eddie Rocks, shame that Malenko won U.S. Title (his biggest reign in WCW) 7.5/10

2. Psychosis Vs. Ultimate Dragon - These two wrestlers were on the TOP 8/10

3. Martial Arts Match: Technically hardly beaten Chris Kanyon (Mortis) Vs. The most protected and hated Glacier - Poor Kanyon had to job to this idiot Glacier, that no one cares about. BLAH! 3/10

4. Strap Match: Buff Bagwell Vs. Scotty Riggs - Long and nothing special. Bagwell and Riggs are average performers. Heel won, huh. 6/10

5. Public Enemy Vs. Harlem Heat - Tornado match - ordinary bout. 6.5/10

6. WCW World Television Title Match: Rey Mysterio Jr. Vs. Champ-Prince Iaukea - Good but maybe a bit too long. 8/10

7. Three Team Match: Piper/Jeff Jarrett/Chris Benoit/Steve Mcmichael Vs. Hogan/Nash/Hall/Macho Vs. Scott Steiner/Lex Luger/Giant - Maybe you'll be surprised but that was a good main event!! Sting's appearance and final turn on NWO was breathtaking. Biggest crowd reaction from the moment that NWO was created. 9/10
