Your hosts are Eric Bischoff, Steve McMichael & Bobby Heenan
Ric Flair steals Bischoff's headset and says he's coming for Arn Anderson. That was great!
Lex Luger Vs Randy Savage
If Luger loses, he has to leave WCW. Both are faces, but Luger's motivation is ambiguous. Lex Luger wins by submission with the torture rack after taking advantage of interference by The Big Show. This was somewhat of a strange match. There was far too much stalling at the start and it had some really weird spots. It was obvious nobody would lose clean here and that's exactly what happened.
Eddie Guerrero Vs Dean Malenko
YES! YES! YES! I'm so pumped for this. For some reason, Disco Inferno appears before the match starts and dances on the stage ramp. Eddie wins with some kind of roll-up. I have mixed feelings on this match. Both had Counter after counter, move after move. Eddie's sick top rope plancha to Dean on the floor was amazing, but I was far too distracted by the idiotic commentary. Bobby Heenan is a caricature of himself. I also didn't appreciate how they showed Hogan arriving backstage right in the middle of the match. It took me right out of the moment.
Hulk Hogan says he had to do a little soul-searching. He credits a young fan going for a double lung transplant operation for his inspiration. On his way out, Hogan gets attacked by an old woman in attendance. It turns out, it's The Taskmaster, Kevin Sullivan. The Giant comes down and messes up Hogan's already injured neck before The Dungeon of Doom shaves Hogan's mustache. The American Males & The Nasty Boys try to save Hogan, but they all get choke slammed by The Giant.
Thoughts: I hated this entire storyline. Hogan vs The Dungeon of Doom lasted WAY too long.
Arn Anderson Vs Ric Flair
Flair wins by DQ after Brian Pillman interferes and double teams Flair with Anderson. This was a solid match between these two, as to be expected. It was a hard-fought battle and a great choice to end the show. Flair still acted like a heel at times, begging for mercy and doing heel tactics. That's the great thing about Flair, though. He can be a babyface and still be the dirtiest player in the game
Next week, Ric Flair faces Arn Anderson inside a steel cage!
The show was not bad overall. They gave us a good main event that delivered. Now that I think about it, Luger is more of a tweener than a babyface. His feud with Savage was just lacking something, though. They tried to build it up as something big, but I wasn't really buying into it. Hogan's god awful feud with The Dungeon of Doom continued. They did book The Giant really strongly and he looked like a beast. Too Bad I didn't care. When you interrupt a Dean Malenko vs Eddie Guerrero match just to show Hogan's face for a couple of minutes, you're gonna annoy me. If you have the WWE Network, it's worth a watch
