The Steiner Brothers come out and interrupt the broadcast. Scott Steiner says he considers Sting a friend. He's here to make sure Sting doesn't attack Rick Steiner again.
Glacier Vs Hardbody Harrison
Glacier wins in just over a minute with a spin kick to the head. This was a short squash match to put over Glacier.
The Amazing French Canadians (Jacques Rougeau & Carl Ouellet) (W/Col. Parker) Vs The Renegade & Joe Gomez
The French Canadians win. At least this wasn't a total squash. Gomez & The Renegade managed to get in some offense. At the end of the day, it's still a glorified squash.
Next, is an interview with Arn Anderson. He says the perception of Hulk Hogan is that he couldn't be beat. Arn says he destroyed that myth by beating Hogan twice in a row. Arn says Ric Flair told him years ago that the toughest fight he ever had was against Roddy Piper. Arn says he took it with a grain of salt until he watched the passion, the heart, and the guts Piper had with every match. He says Hogan gave Piper his best shot, but he couldn't take him out. He says in Charlotte, NC,the Four Horsemen are gonna be watching Piper's back.
The Faces of Fear (Meng & The Barbarian) Vs Robert Gibson & Scotty Riggs
Meng & The Barbarian win. Riggs nail Meng & The Barbarian with chairs in the head, but it barely phases them. They all did fine, it's just that the match had little to no heat behind it.
Kevin Sullivan Vs KC Sunshine
Kevin Sullivan completely squashes Sunshine.
Dean Malenko (C) Vs Billy Kidman
Malenko wins by submission with the Texas Cloverleaf. This was a sweet little match. Kidman got a chance to strut his stuff, and he looked good in defeat. I'm glad this got some time.
Your hosts are Mike Tenay, Tony Schiavone & Bobby Heenan
Jeff Jarrett Vs Big Bubba Rogers (W/Jimmy Hart)
Jarrett wins by dropkicking the megaphone in Bubba's face. Jarrett wasn't working as the Flair wannabe. This match was kinda overbooked as well.
Rick Steiner and Scott Steiner are in the ring. Rick is calling out Sting. Sting appears from the rafters and looks on. Rick Steiner challenges Sting to a match. Sting nods his head yes and leaves.
Eric Bischoff, Scott Hall, Kevin Nash, Syxx, and Vincent invade the announcer's table and scare off the commentators. Eric Bischoff is gonna take over play-by-play.
Eddie Guerrero Vs Squire Dave Taylor
Eddie wins with a frogsplash. This was a quick match that seemed like a glorified squash to me. The nWo's commentary was admittedly entertaining.
Arn Anderson Vs Jim Powers (W/Teddy Long)
Anderson wins with a DDT. Powers got in more offense than I expected, so I guess that's something.
Chris Beniot Vs Lord Steven Regal
Beniot wins. This was a decent match ruined by poor camera work. It was really annoying and ruined a bit of the effectiveness.
Arn Anderson, Chris Beniot, Steve McMichael & Debra all speak about the unity of the Horsemen. They question Beniot whether Woman is a member of the Horsemen. Beniot reassured them she is. Debra rips Woman because she wears poor perfume.... And people wonder why I dislike Debra.
Lex Luger Vs Rocco Rock (W/Johnny Grunge)
Lex Luger wins with the torture rack. The matches have really sucked tonight for the most part. This was another glorified squash.
Rick Steiner (W/Scott Steiner) Vs Sting
Rick and Sting brawl for a while until Sting hits a Scorpion deathdrop on him. After Rick Steiner gets up. Sting hands Rick Steiner the bat and turns his back to Rick. Rick goes to hit him, but Scott Steiner stops Rick. Sting walks up towards the nWo and points his bat at them before leaving back into the crowd.
Thoughts: Sting is the best part about Nitro every week, not the nWo. People can disagree with that all they want.
This was a below average show. The nWo is sporadically entertaining. Other times, they are too much. Tonight, they were a bit of both. I crave wrestling, and the only good match I got was Billy Kidman Vs Dean Malenko.
