Madusa shows up at the commentator's table with the WWF Women's Championship. She grabs a trash can and dumps the Women's Championship into the trash can. She says she was known as Alundra Blayze in the WWF, but she's now known as Madusa because this is where the big girls play.
Thoughts: I have mixed feelings on this. On one hand, it provided a memorable moment that we'll remember forever. On the other hand, it's disgusting disrespect. Not only that, but Madusa's delivery sounded so forced and it was obvious that Madusa was coerced into doing it.
For those that care, William "Refridgerator" Perry shows up as well.
Ric Flair Vs Eddie Guerrero
Oh, hell yeah! Give them some time, please. Ric Flair wins by submission when Eddie Guerrero passes out from the Figure Four. This was a little disappointing, I expected much more from these two. I did like the finish, however. It protected Eddie in defeat and made him look like a warrior.
Gene Okerlund comes down to interview Ric Flair and Arn Anderson. Arn says he respects Paul Orndorff, but Orndorff had to suffer the consequences for sticking his nose in their business. (The Four Horsemen delivered a spike piledriver to Orndorff on the concrete the previous week) The Taskmaster (Kevin Sullivan) comes out with Jimmy Hart. He complains about Brian Pillman insulting The Dungeon of Doom last week. He warns Arn Anderson to keep Pillman on a leash. Flair tries to play peacemaker, but Arn Anderson says there will be a problem if The Dungeon of Doom starts anything with Pillman.
Thoughts: This was nothing more than two heel factions bickering over something minor.
Sgt. Craig Pittman visits the commentator's table and asks Bobby Heenan to manage him. Heenan says he's retired from managing, but he'll get somebody else to help him. Pittman warns Heenan that there will be hell to pay if he doesn't get help soon.
Lex Luger (W/Jimmy Hart) Vs Marcus Bagwell (W/Scotty Riggs)
Luger wins with the Torture Rack. Afterwards, he joins Gene Okerlund for an interview. He says he's the uncrowned WCW Champion and he has Randy Savage's number. The match was a glorified squash.
Sting Vs Earl Robert Eaton
Sting wins with The Scorpion Deathlock. This one wasn't anything to write home about. Eaton is a good worker, but I don't have much else to say about the match.
Gene Okerlund asks Sting about the Triple Threat Triangle match at Starrcade. He's a little miffed that Luger hasn't given him the credit he deserves. He says he's a 5 time world champion and he'd like to make it 6.
WCW Heavyweight Championship
Randy Savage (C) Vs The Giant (W/Jimmy Hart & The Taskmaster)
The Giant has the match won, but Hulk Hogan runs down and causes the disqualification by attacking The Giant with a chair. Hogan goes absolutely nuts and even hits the referee and security people with a chair. The Giant comes out and wants more of Hogan, but Hogan runs down and nails him and Kevin Sullivan in the head with chair shots. Hulk Hogan wants "his" title shot against Randy Savage. Savage says if he's still the WCW champion after Starrcade, Hogan can have a shot.
I don't think anybody expected a stellar main event between these two. That being said, I expected worse. There were a couple of cool moments, such as The Giant kicking out of the flying elbow drop. The Giant also threw a pretty impressive dropkick for his size.
