Live from Macon, GA

Your hosts for hour number one are Tony Schiavone & Larry Zbyszko

The American Males Vs Ric Flair & Arn Anderson (W/Miss Elizabeth & Woman)

Flair and Anderson win after Flair capitalizes on a DDT to Bagwell by Anderson. This was OK for an opener. Bagwell and Riggs were protected in defeat and presented as threats to Flair and Anderson, which is good.

**

Arn Anderson says he's never met a football player he couldn't handle, and that Flair has never met a woman he couldn't have. He says Debra McMichael is next on Flair's list. Flair cuts one of his patented promos about women, Kevin Greene, Randy Savage and Steve McMichael. Miss Elizabeth seems unphased by Flair's pursuit of Debra and says Flair can have anything he wants.

Thoughts: I don't like how Miss Elizabeth and Woman were being treated at this juncture. Miss Elizabeth always had this innocence about her in the WWF, and I feel WCW tried to destroy that. It's kind of degrading.

Steve McMichael and Kevin Greene are shown working out in preparation for their match against Flair and Anderson at the Great American Bash. I honestly don't give a rat's ass about this feud.

Steve Doll Vs The Mauler (W/Col. Robert Parker)

Steve Doll is Steven Dunn of Well Dunn from the WWF, and The Mauler is best known as Blake Beverly as a member of the Beverly Brothers. Scott Hall comes in through the crowd and interrupts the match.

3/4*

"You People know who I am, but you don't know why I'm here. Where is Billionaire Ted, where is the Nacho Man? That punk can't even get in the building. I go where I want, whenever I want. And where oh where is Scheme Gene? Have I got a scoop for you. When that king doll Look-Alike, when that weatherman wannabe comes out here later tonight, I got a challenge for him, for Billionaire Ted, for the Nacho Man, and for anyone else in the WCW. Hey, you wanna go to war? You want a war? You're gonna get one"

Thoughts: This changed the game completely. With Scott Hall's appearance, this had the wrestling world talking. It was really shocking at the time, because nobody expected him to show up in WCW. The promo itself isn't all that memorable, but the sight of Scott Hall in a WCW ring was. The last words of Hall's "You want a war? You're gonna get one" are chilling because we all know what ensued. I just wish the crowd wasn't so dead for it.

Sgt. Craig Pittman (W/Teddy Long) Vs Diamond Dallas Paige

DDP wins with the Diamond Cutter. This was a really quick match! Not much I can say about it, other than it gave DDP some more momentum.

1/4*

We get a short video of WCW reminding us how "crazy" Randy Savage is.

The Shark (Earthquake) is offended that Kevin Sullivan and Jimmy Hart have abandoned him and thrown him out of the Dungeon of Doom. He says he's gonna win the WCW title from The Giant tonight and eat Jimmy Hart for dessert.

Hulk Hogan hangs around with a bunch of B-list celebrities and does a lot for charities. How touching!

It's time for Hour number two!

Your hosts are Eric Bischoff & Bobby Heenan

WCW Heavyweight Championship

The Giant (C) (W/Jimmy Hart) Vs The Shark

The Giant wins with a chokeslam. Big Bubba Rogers shaves The Shark's head after the match. This was an atrocious match that was thankfully short. The crowd didn't care and neither did I.

DUD

Television Title

Lex Luger (C) Vs Maxx

Maxx is Max Muscle, DDP's former bodyguard. Luger wins with the Torture Rack. This was a power vs power match. Those matches usually suck and this one easily falls under that category.

*

Lex Luger says he wants to get revenge on The Giant for the chokeslam through a table. He also wants every big man WCW has to offer to prove a point to The Giant.

Bobby Walker Vs Brad Armstrong

Walker pins Armstrong with a flying shoulderblock from the top. I have no idea who Bobby Walker is. The only memorable thing about this match is Walker almost slipping twice on the top turnbuckle.

*

Steven Regal Vs Alex Wright

Regal pins Wright with a jackknife roll-up. This match was hard- hitting and technically OK, but pretty uneventful.Wright was pretty unproven at this juncture.

*1/2

William Regal calls Gene Okerlund a miserable little toad. He also issues challenges to Sting & The Giant. Sorry it's not more detailed. IMDb has a word limit.

Scott Steiner Vs Sting

The match ends in a no-contest after Luger and Rick Steiner get involved. The Steiner's brawl with Lex Luger and Sting afterwards with officials and preliminary wrestlers trying to break it up. This was a pretty decent match before the abrupt ending.

**1/2

Scott Hall shows up at the announcer's table. He says Bischoff has a big mouth and "we" are sick of it. He says WCW is a joke. He wants three of WCW's very best and mentions Macho Man & Sting as possible opponents. He says "We" are taking over.

Thoughts: This was a great way to end the show. It gave WCW a huge shot in the arm. WCW was filled with stale story lines at this juncture and Scott Hall's appearance really revitalized things. Everyone knows Kevin Nash is the other guy, but back then you didn't know what was going on.

7/10 ranking overall.
