Eric Bischoff, Scott Hall & Kevin Nash are at the announcer's table talking about how The Outsiders got screwed out of the tag team titles at nWo Souled Out by The Steiner's. The Outsiders had the match won, but Nick Patrick got knocked out and Randy Anderson took over and counted the three. Eric Bischoff brings in the referee, Randy Anderson who took over for Nick Patrick and counted the three. Bischoff fires Randy Anderson. He also makes The Steiner's hand over the tag team titles. The Steiner's get the last laugh by destroying the titles.
The Steiner Brothers Vs The Faces of Fear (Meng & The Barbarian)
The Steiner Brothers win. This was a pretty average match with nothing overly special about it. You could have worse ways to start a show, that's for sure.
The Giant Vs Roadblock
The Giant wins easily with a chokeslam. The Giant says he's still alive. He says what doesn't kill him, pisses him off more. He challenges Hogan to put the WCW title on the line later tonight. He vows to become champion again.
United States Championship
Eddie Guerrero (C) Vs Jeff Jarrett
Debra comes out with Steve McMichael. Debra wants McMichael to nail Guerrero with the briefcase, but McMichael nails Jarrett instead to cause the DQ. This was going decent while it lasted. These two could probably have a really good match if they were given time.
Tony Schiavone goes to show video of Hulk Hogan's loss to Roddy Piper, but it gets edited out. Eric Bischoff comes out with the tape and warns Schiavone never to pull a stunt like that again.
The Ultimo Dragon (W/Sonny Onoo) Vs Billy Pearl
The Dragon wins with a tiger suplex. This was decent for a glorified squash match.
The Four Horsemen are back on track. The only thing they can't agree on is Debra's fondness for Jeff Jarrett.
Lex Luger Vs Ron Powers
Luger wins pretty quickly with the torture rack. Luger says it's great The Giant is at war with the nWo. He says it's time WCW starts trusting someone to be the leader. He's all ears when it comes to that.
Your hosts are Tony Schiavone, Mike Tenay & Bobby Heenan
Arn Anderson & Steve McMichael (W/Debra) Vs The Amazing French Canadians (W/Col. Rob Parker)
Anderson and McMichael win after McMichael nails Jacques Rougeau with his briefcase. This was just to reestablish the solidity of the Four Horsemen. The match itself was mediocre.
The Outsiders Vs Devon Storm & Ace Darling
The Outsiders win with ease. I'm getting tired of all these squash matches.
Kevin Sullivan (W/Jimmy Hart) Vs Joe Gomez
Sullivan wins in 43 seconds. Sigh.
Hollywood Hogan and Eric Bischoff are out next for a promo. Eric Bischoff lies about how Hogan dominated The Giant at nWo Souled out. Hogan says that everybody has a failure to communicate. He says nobody is in his league. He says he dominated The Giant with olympic wrestling moves. He says The Giant, Roddy Piper, and Randy Savage are all hasbins. He says for all his loyal fans that bow down to him, he'll face The Giant later tonight. Sting and Randy Savage appear in the crowd. Bischoff and Hogan claim Savage can no longer work for WCW, but he may be able to join the nWo. Hogan says he's gonna go to the back and do some pushups so he looks nice and beautiful for his match against The Giant tonight. He says he'll beat up The Giant 9 days a week for free. He poses to end this segment. Meh. This was a typical Hollywood Hogan promo. He said nothing new.
Dean Malenko Vs Jerry Flynn
Malenko wins easily by submission with the Texas Cloverleaf. Another squash match. This is one of the reasons I get annoyed at Nitro's.
It's announced that Hulk Hogan will face "Rowdy" Roddy Piper at Superbrawl for the World Heavyweight Championship.
Chris Beniot (W/Woman) Vs Hugh Morrus
Morrus wins after Kevin Sullivan interferes. Jacqueline makes her WCW debut as well. Not much of a match, but at least it had somewhat of a noteworthy ending.
Jimmy Hart doesn't trust Jacqueline and tells Kevin Sullivan to stay away from her. Jacqueline objects and insults Woman and Debra.
Hollywood Hogan says nobody tells the nWo what to do. He says he'll take on Roddy Piper and The Giant in a handicap match if he has to.
"Hollywood" Hulk Hogan (W/Eric Bischoff, Ted Dibiase & Vincent) Vs The Giant
The match ends in a DQ when the nWo gets involved. The Outsiders run out and double team the Giant until Lex Luger runs down to make the save. Luger and The Giant staredown The Outsiders as the show goes off the air. This was somewhat of a hot ending if nothing else. The match is what you probably expect from Hogan and The Giant. It was too short to really matter.
This episode is pretty weak. It features way too many short matches and the story lines weren't exciting enough.
