Piper is awesome!
4 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

Hour one.

Live from Charlotte, NC

Your hosts are Tony Schiavone & Larry Zbyszko

Roddy Piper opens the show. He says he's done a lot of things wrong, and he's surprised people cheer for him.He says the last time you saw him, the nWo was attacking his knee. Piper hops around on his leg to show he's fine. He says he has 6 kids and he has to win this fight as a loud "Hogan sucks" chant breaks out. He says his 7-year- old son questioned Piper on how he's gonna face Hogan with one leg. Piper says that didn't stop Bo Jackson. He says when he had a boxing match with Mr. T, they wanted Piper to take a dive for him. He says he doesn't take dives for anyone. He points out a guy with a "this is nWo country" sign on it. Piper says he has nothing against the nWo. He's not with WCW or the nWo. He trashes the guy in epic fashion. He says he's sick of hearing about Hulk Hogan, but he truly is a superstar. He's not taking this fight lightly. Piper calls Hogan out, but he doesn't show up.

Thoughts: Piper is magic on the microphone. He really is one of the best talkers ever. This was a great segment.

Mr. Wallstreet Vs Mike Enos

Wallstreet wins with a Samoan Drop. Ted Dibiase comes out and gives Wallstreet a contract. This was a sly nod to Dibiase's former partnership when Wallstreet was I.R.S in the WWF.

1/4*

Next, is a video. Chris Beniot is out with Woman at a restaurant. They drink wine together and taunt Kevin Sullivan.

Hugh Morrus Vs The Renegade (W/Joe Gomez)

Morrus wins with a moonsault off the top. This match isn't worth recapping.

* Kevin Sullivan storms out. He chastises Tony Schiavone for playing the video of Chris Beniot and Woman at the restaurant. He says it's all about ratings. Schiavone says he's just doing what he's told. Sullivan says that video affected somebody in his family really bad. The next time that happens, he wants Schiavone to show it to him.

Kevin Greene comes out for an interview with Mean Gene. Kevin Greene says he's still bothered that Steve McMichael souled him out for a couple bucks. He says the nWo is crap, and he's gonna rename Hollywood Hogan "choking Hogan" because he's gonna have his fist down Hogan's throat.

Cruiserweight Championship

Dean Malenko (C) Vs Jimmy Graffiti

Malenko wins with a small package. This was an entertaining match. Graffiti was booked pretty strong in this match, and that made things better. This is what happens when you book your undercard properly.

***1/4

The Nasty Boys Vs Meng & The Barbarian (W/Jimmy Hart)

Meng & The Barbarian win after The Barbarian nails Brian Knobbs with the megaphone. This was a chaotic brawl, and not a very good one at that. The Outsiders made a brief appearance during the match.

*1/4

Ric Flair comes out for an interview. He brings out Roddy Piper. Flair endorses Piper and offers The Horsemen to be in his corner. Piper politely turns the help down.

Hour two.

Your hosts are Tony Schiavone, Mike Tenay & Bobby Heenan

Chris Jericho Vs Bobby Eaton

Jericho wins with a missile dropkick off the top. This was a nice win to build some momentum for Jericho.

*

Arn Anderson (W/Steve McMichael & Debra) Vs Sgt. Craig Pittman

Anderson wins with the DDT. I'm not sure why McMichael needed to interfere. Pittman was strictly an enhancement talent at this juncture.

Arn Anderson and Steve McMichael condemn Woman for not being there. They are questioning her loyalty. I have to say, Debra is one of the most annoying people I've ever seen.

Diamond Dallas Paige Vs Jeff Jarrett

DDP wins with the help of Scott Hall. DDP tells Scott Hall & Kevin Nash to leave him alone after the match. I was somewhat looking forward to DDP nailing Jarrett with the Diamond Cutter, but oh well. The match was pretty decent.

**1/2

Roddy Piper calls out Hulk Hogan, but he gets Eric Bischoff instead. Some fan hilariously throws a drink right in Bischoff's face. I don't condone that, but I can't stand Bischoff so I found it funny. Bischoff says he is Piper's only friend because he's trying to protect Piper from himself. Bischoff says Piper is no Hulk Hogan. His 24 inch pythons are gonna squash Piper like a grape. Bischoff calls Piper a gimp and walks away. Piper nails Bischoff from behind and threatens to bash his head in with a chair. The nWo comes running out. Kevin Greene, Arn Anderson, and Steve McMichael come out to help Piper.

Thoughts: This was a really hot ending. Piper was fantastic as the aggressive face that wanted Hogan. Bischoff was Bischoff. It was nice to see somebody other than the nWo get the upper hand for once.

This was a decent show for the most part. It's amazing how someone like Roddy Piper can enliven a show so much. There was solid story advancement with DDP as well as others.

6/10
