United States Championship
Jeff Jarrett (W/Debra) (C) Vs Steve McMichael
McMichael wins the title after Eddie Guerrero accidentally costs Jarrett the match. This isn't the match I would have chosen to start the show, but the crowd went nuts for the title change so, who am I to say?
*1/2 out of 5
Alex Wright cuts a laughable, nonsensical promo.
Raven Vs Stevie Richards
Raven wins with a DDT. This was mostly Richards getting his ass kicked in uninteresting ways. It was no disqualification, but it wasn't all that hardcore.
*1/4 out of 5
The Ultimo Dragon (C) Vs Alex Wright
Wright wins the title with a German Suplex. Despite that I'm angry over a goof like Alex Wright winning the title from The Dragon, this was actually a good match for the most part, aside from the slow start. Can't complain too much.
**3/4 out of 5
Chris Jericho (C) Vs Eddie Guerrero
Jericho retains. I'd love to say that this was the great match you and I were expecting, but it isn't. It's decent at best with a shocking amount of sloppiness. Everyone has bad days and I know these two are capable of much more.
**1/2 out of 5
Psychosis, Silver King, Villano IV & Villano V Vs Juventud Guerrera, Super Calo, Lizmark Jr. & Hector Garza
Psychosis's team wins. Aside from one really cool spot outside the ring, this was a rather tame affair. I didn't find it to be all that exciting for a spotfest.

The guys from Dinner & Movie reveal they are with the nWo, and throwing a party for them. They insult DDP, so, he nails one of them with a Diamond Cutter on the set. Awesome!
Ric Flair & Curt Hennig Vs Syxx & Konnan
Hennig and Flair win after Hennig pins Konnan with a fisherman's suplex. This match was OK. It was basically here to provide the question whether Hennig is a Horsemen or not. Hennig and Flair are better enemies.
*1/2 out of 5
DDP & Lex Luger Vs Scott Hall & Randy Savage
Nash announces he's putting the tag team titles up for grabs. This is now for the tag team titles. Savage and Hall win after DDP inadvertently delivers a Diamond Cutter to Luger. That was a really weird finish. The match itself wasn't bad. DDP played the face in peril for most of it.
**1/4 out of 5
We get a really awesome ending with Sting interrupting the nWo's party from the rafters. A crow comes down to the ring and just stares at the nWo. I'm not gonna spoil everything, but it's pretty cool.
Well, this show is memorable for a couple of reasons. The ending is awesome and it proved why WCW was ruling the wrestling world at the time. It has a couple of solid matches as well. It's definitely above average.
