Pretty hard to watch!, 8 June 2016

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

'Hour one.

Live from Pensacola, FL

Your hosts are Tony Schiavone & Larry Zbyszko

Eric Bischoff, Ted Dibiase & Vincent come out and remove Schiavone & Zbyszko from the announcer's table. So our hosts for the night are gonna be Eric Bischoff & Ted Dibiase.

Television Championship

Steven Regal (C) Vs Psychosis

Regal wins with the Regal Stretch. This was a great little match almost RUINED by Bischoff's commentary. He went on and on about Hogan and Piper. Not only was it disrespectful, but very distracting as well. I was able to let it go and watch this show stealer.

***3/4

Big Bubba Rogers Vs Chavo Guerrero Jr.

Bubba wins with the Bossman slam. Chavo got in some offense to make this slightly competitive. Once again, the commentary annoyed me.

*1/4

Masa Hiro Chono Vs Chris Jericho

Jericho wins by DQ. Chono's offense was really dull to watch. Jericho wasn't able to do much with this one. That's not his fault.

*

Ric Flair, Arn Anderson, Steve McMichael & Debra comment on the absence of Chris Beniot and Woman. This segment was ruined by Debra. She's beyond annoying.

Dean Malenko Vs David Sammartino

Davis is Bruno Sammartino's son. Malenko wins. This match was too short to really amount to much. They basically traded some moves and it was over before you know it.

*

Hour two.

Your hosts are Tony Schiavone, Mike Tenay & Bobby Heenan

Ice Train (W/Teddy Long) Vs Jerry Flynn

Ice Train wins by submission. This isn't worth recapping.

3/4*

Syxx & The Outsiders are out next. They issue a challenge to The Faces of Fear later tonight.

Rey Mysterio Jr. Vs Bobby Eaton

Mysterio wins with a frankensteiner from the top. Eaton dominated most of the match until Mysterio hit a move at the end. This match was mediocre at best

*1/2

We get another video of Chris Beniot & Woman taunting Kevin Sullivan

Kevin Sullivan (W/Jimmy Hart) Vs Arn Anderson

Sullivan wins after Dungeon of Doom members interfere. This was an intense brawl while it lasted. I'm kinda shaking my head at the result, though.

*1/2

Sting Vs Rick Steiner (W/Scott Steiner)

nWo Sting and the real Sting both come out. Sting delivers the Scorpion deathdrop to the nWo Sting and throws Rick Steiner his baseball bat before leaving.

Hollywood Hogan comes out. He calls out Roddy Piper. Hogan says he started his career in Pensacola, FL, and considers it his hometown. Hogan says he was beating up Andre the Giant when he started. Hogan rips on Ric Flair. He says with Piper's bad hip and Flair's bad arm, he could beat both of them up at the same time. Hogan asks Elizabeth to kiss him on the cheek. Elizabeth kisses him on the cheek. It turns out, Roddy Piper isn't here tonight. Hogan talks some more trash and poses to end this pointless segment.

The Outsiders Vs The Faces of Fear (W/Jimmy Hart)

The match ends in a no-contest. Big Bubba Rogers comes out and turns on the Dungeon of Doom. He's now with the nWo. Many more nWo and WCW wrestlers come out. Scott Norton joins the nWo as well. Sting comes out and does nothing until WCW wrestlers start attacking him. Sting shoves them all away and leaves as Nitro goes off the air.

Thoughts: This was kind of a decent ending. It's too bad the show was so boring for the most part.

After a great match between Regal and Psychosis, it all went downhill after that. This episode is a snooze fest with WAY too much nWo.

3.5/10
