Telvision Championship

Lex Luger (C) Vs The Lochness Monster (W/Jimmy Hart)

The Giant comes out and attacks The Lochness Monster before the match can even start. Lochness is unable to get back to the ring, therefore, Luger wins by countout. Luger celebrates like he's won the Stanley Cup and brags about his win over at the announcer's table.

Thoughts: This was a really weird way to start the show. I don't know if The Giant is turning face or it's just a case of The Giant feeling threatened by the presence of another Giant. Luger is actually showing some personality here in his tweener role.

Hulk Hogan and Randy Savage come out for an interview with Tony Schiavone. Hogan says The Mega Powers are on fire and he and Macho Man are gonna go all the way to the top together. Hogan says he's the dirtiest player in the game, now. Savage says The Mega Powers are like Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid. Hogan says he doesn't care what Sullivan conjures up in the Dungeon, he's gonna take them all down.

Thoughts: Savage comparing The Mega Powers to Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid was kinda weird.

The Steiner Brothers Vs Public Enemy

The Steiner's win with a bulldog off the top. This was surprisingly somewhat fun! The Public Enemy had a lot of agility for their size and meshed well with The Steiner's. I also liked that they incorporated some hardcore stuff into their match as well.

**1/4

Arn Anderson (W/Woman) Vs The Booty Man

The Booty Man is Brutus Beefcake. The Booty Man wins with a running knee lift, thanks to a distraction from The Diamond Doll. I can only imagine how embarrassing and frustrating it was for Arn to lose to somebody like The Booty Man at this stage in his career. I think it's a disgrace and one of the reasons I detested WCW at times.

*

The Roadwarriors Vs The Nasty Boys

Roadwarriors win after Animal waffles Knobbs with a shoulder pad. This was basically a brawl with a lot of punching and mayhem. The booking for the tag team division is so confusing. You don't know who is heel or face. Roadwarriors are slapping fan's hands on the way out, yet cheating to win a match. The Steiner's act like faces, yet come out and attack The Nasty's.

*1/4

Texas Torndado Match

Ric Flair & The Taskmaster (W/Woman) Vs Hulk Hogan & Randy Savage

Then match ends in a DQ when Brian Pillman, Arn Anderson, Ze Gangsta (Zeus) and The Booty Man interfere. The match was non-stop action, but it wasn't all that exciting, if that makes sense. Maybe it's because I'm sick of tag matches between these four.

**

Sullivan, Flair, and Arn Anderson comment on the doomsday cage match at Uncensored. Sullivan says this is his last chance to end Hulkamania. He went out and got Ze Gangsta because Ze Gangsta had Hogan's number in the 80's. Flair says after they put Hogan and Savage in the hospital, he'll bring Elizabeth to see Savage.

Thoughts: It never truly dawned on me how ridiculous Hogan's superman act was. I thought John Cena was bad, but Hogan has him beat in that area by a mile. How nice of WCW to remind us of the laughably bad feud between Hogan and Zeus.
