Treading water
12 June 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

1st Match: Johnny B. Badd vs Brian Pillman. This match had a lot of promise, two guys I like starting a PPV, guys that have proved that starting a show with them is a good idea. What happened here? First off, the match goes to a time-limit draw at 20 minutes. Not only that, but the whole match is just rest holds, and double KOs. It reminds me of Orton/Edge at Vengeance '04, a match that's nothing but rest holds and it feels like an eternity. Pillman goes heel way later than he should've, to no reaction whatsoever, and the match is in sudden death for an additional 9 minutes. There are a few high spots, but they're few and far between. To say this is a bad start to a PPV is an understatement. Rating: 1/5

2nd Match: Sgt. Craig Pittman vs Cobra. 80 seconds of nothing. You know what I love when I pay $60 for a PPV, nothing matches that are only there to fill a time-slot. Rating: None.

3rd Match: The Renegade vs DDP, WCW World TV Championship. This match is only good because DDP oversells everything like Michaels/Hogan from SummerSlam '05. At least DDP wins, which means that Renegade will slowly disappear because I'm really sick of his "Discount Warrior" gimmick. Rating: 2/5.

4th Match: Harlem Heat vs Bunkhouse Buck and Dick Slater, WCW World Tag Team Championships. An OK match, but there's no real high point. The match just exists to be there. It's not bad, it just goes through the motions to fill time. The sad thing is, this is the best match so far. Rating: 3/5.

5th Match: Ric Flair vs Arn Anderson. This has all the makings of a Match of the Year contender. Fantastic chemistry between 2 veterans, great storytelling, great back and forth action, and then Brian Pillman screws Flair out of the victory. What the hell was that?!? Was one of these face's winning clean too much to ask? The first 99% of this match is near flawless, and then the ending happens. Rating: 4.5/5

6th Match: The Hulkamaniacs vs The Dungeon of Doom, WarGames. Real question: Who was watching this in 1995 and actually thought Hogan would lose this? Answer: Nobody. This match is so predictable it hurts. The remnants of the Cartoon Era taking on 4 of the biggest faces in WCW at the time, even if they shot Hogan in the head they still would'nt have had a chance in hell of winning. So Hogan and company win, to the surprise of no one, and then Big Show comes down and wrenches Hogan's neck off. A completely anticlimactic end to a bad PPV. Rating: 1.5/5

Final Rating: 4 out of 10. If it hadn't been for Anderson and Flair putting on a near classic, this show would've scored a lot lower. WCW is seriously treading water right now. I think they've only had one above average show this whole year. Please tell me WCW gets better as soon as possible.
