Sting shows up at the announcer's booth and claims he's gonna solve the problems between Randy Savage & Sting later tonight.
United States Championship
Sting (C) Vs The Shark
The Shark is a man of a thousand aliases, including, Earthquake, Avalanche, John Tenta, and Golga. His time as Earthquake in the WWF is by far the most relevant. Sting wins in just over a minute with a flying cross-body from the top turnbuckle. Thank you, Sting! I truly appreciate that you ended this match so quickly. I had feared this would go 10 minutes or something. Sting dominated the outset, aside from a couple of moves from The Shark.
We get a recap of The Dungeon of Doom attacking Hulk Hogan. Kevin Sullivan dressed up as a woman to fool Hogan and The Giant came down and wrenched Hogan's neck. They also shave Hogan's mustache.
Sabu Vs Mr. J.L.
Mr. J.L. is Jerry Lynn under a mask. Sabu wins by submission with the Camel Clutch. This was kinda fun while it lasted. Sabu's reckless approach is always fun to watch. It was rather spotty and too short, but I still had some fun. There were loud Sabu and Hogan sucks chants
Gene Okerlund is with Sting, Lex Luger, and Randy Savage inside the ring. Savage questions why Sting is the only one that hasn't been choke-slammed. Sting says Savage is paranoid and insecure. Sting suggests that Savage face Kamala and Luger face Meng at Halloween Havoc. If Sting and Savage win their respective matches, Savage and Luger face each other on the same night at Halloween Havoc. Savage likes it, Luger doesn't. Sting calls Luger pathetic and says he's tired of sticking up and babysitting for Luger. Luger finally agrees to Sting's idea and it's official.
Chris Beniot arrives in a limo and these are his exact words. "WCW. Where the big boys play"
Big Bubba Rogers Vs Road Warrior Hawk
Disco Inferno shows up on the entrance way before the match and randomly dances. He has some amusing exchanges with Bubba and Hawk. I gotta say, it's weird seeing Hawk as a single's competitor. There are loud "LOD" chants as well. Bubba wins by count out after Hawk attacks Disco Inferno for being a pest. The Disco Inferno shenanigans were entertaining, but that's about it.
Hulk Hogan comes out in black attire, ditching the red and yellow. There are loud boos for Hogan! Okerlund tries to cover it up by saying it's because of Hogan's black attire. Hogan says he's gonna play Kevin Sullivan's game and says he'll beat The Giant just like he beat his dad Andre. He calls The Giant out, but Okerlund says there is a restraining order and The Giant can't come out. He heavily implies that the WWF is dying and Vince McMahon is choking on his own ego. He came to WCW for Hulkamania to grow. He says shaving his mustache is the equivalent of burning the American flag. The Giant is outside the building with The Dungeon of Doom in a monster truck, trying to get inside the building. Hogan leaves the ring to try to get to the Giant.
Thoughts: I'm not a huge Hogan fan, but I actually enjoyed this segment. Hogan's zany promo gave me a few chuckles and the black attire was some nice foreshadowing for Hogan's heel turn in 96. The Dungeon of Doom showing up in the monster truck was fun as well.
Steel Cage Match
Ric Flair Vs Arn Anderson
Arn Anderson pins Flair after he hits Flair with brass knuckles. This was a good cage match while it lasted. Anderson getting the pin was a tad surprising, but it was a welcome surprise. There weren't a ton of huge spots, but there was plenty of excitement from two of the best to ever lace their boots.
Ric Flair comes to the announcer's booth, brimming with intensity. He challenges both Pillman and Anderson to a match next week on Nitro. If he can't find a partner, he'll take them on in a handicapped match
