A couple of cool things can't save an average show
Live from Columbia, SC
Eric Bischoff gloats about Hogan not having to face Sting. J.J Dillon says he's gonna do whatever it takes to make Sting Vs Hollywood Hogan. Eric Bischoff vehemently refuses on Hogan's behalf. Sting comes out and shoves a Hogan t-shirt in Bischoff's mouth and kicks him. What a cool way to start the show.
Glacier & Ernest Miller Vs Psychosis & La Parka
La Parka and Psychosis pick up the surprising victory. The Ultimo Dragon comes out and complains that La Parka cheated. He gets beaten up by Sonny Onoo, Psychosis, Silver King, and La Parka. Well, that ends the Glacier experiment.

The Ultimo Dragon Vs Silver King
The Dragon wins with a sleeper hold. This wasn't too bad. The Ultimo Dragon is one of my favorites and I'm glad he's getting featured like he is.
Scott Hall & Randy Savage come out. Hall says you can't have a party without the nWo. He says the nWo is the reason everybody paid to get in, and everybody watching at home. He says DDP is the newest member of the nWo, but he doesn't come out. He says Lex Luger is in a slump. The crowd chants 'Macho sucks'. He says he's gonna hit Luger with the big elbow tonight and face him in a match.
Gene Okerlund acts like a complete moron during his interview with DDP. He asks if he hit the Diamond Cutter on Luger on purpose. DDP says Okerlund is ridiculous. DDP says he and Luger are stand up guys and he'll straighten it out with Luger.
Chris Beniot Vs Jeff Jarrett
Jarrett wins. This was fast paced and fun to watch, but if you blink, you'll miss it, because it was over that quickly. Not a fan of Jarrett getting the win either.
*1/2 out of 5
Meng & The Barbarian Vs Wrath & Mortis
Meng & The Barbarian win. It looks like the push of Wrath and Mortis is over. Mortis would be repackaged as Chris Kanyon and Wrath would move into tag team with Bryan Adams.
*1/2 out of 5
The Four Horsemen are out. Ric Flair wants an answer from Curt Hennig. Hennig says he's not ready to join the Horsemen. Arn Anderson makes his return. He says he almost overcame neck surgery, but somebody slapped him in the back and he realized his career was over. He officially announces his retirement. He says Curt Hennig is a special talent and offers him his spot in the Four Horsemen. Hennig accepts and joins the Four Horsemen. That was really emotional. Arn Anderson cut one hell of a promo. Seeing Flair get emotional was hard to watch.
United States Title
Steve McMichael (C) Vs Eddie Guerrero
McMichael wins with a tombstone piledriver. It's sad to see Eddie lose like this, especially to someone like McMichael. Oh, well. Better days were ahead for Eddie.
*1/4 out of 5
Rey Mysterio says his knee is really bad and that Konnan wants to end his career. He's gonna see Dr. James Andrews to see what's wrong with his knee. Konnan comes out and threatens to hurt Mysterio's other knee. The Giant walks out and scares Konnan away.
Chris Jericho (C) Vs Yugi Nagata
Jericho wins with the Walls of Jericho. This wasn't too shabby for the time that it got. The crowd was dead silent for it, though, and Bischoff's commentary was distracting.
*3/4 out of 5
Harlem Heat, The Steiner Brothers, and Buff Bagwell & Scott Norton get into a brawl.
Alex Wright (C) Vs Dean Malenko
Malenko wins by DQ after Eddie Guerrero and Jeff Jarrett attack Malenko. I can't believe WCW gave Alex Wright a push. The match itself was OK.
*3/4 out of 5
'Macho Man' Randy Savage Vs Lex Luger
Luger wins by DQ after Scott Hall interferes. DDP comes out to help, but Luger ends up putting him in the torture rack. This was an awful main event. It featured Luger getting his ass kicked in very uninteresting fashion. Luger didn't turn heel by the way.

Well, aside from the cool start to the show and Arn Anderson's promo, this is an average show. Take it or leave it.
