User Reviews

I hated this PPV!
5 April 2016 | by (victoria b.c canada) – See all my reviews


Live from Huntington Beach, CA; The Beach

Attendance 9,500

Your hosts are Tony Schiavone & Bobby Heenan

This PPV takes place on an actual beach! I kinda like the atmosphere.

United States Championship

Sting (C) Vs Meng (W/Col. Robert Parker)

Sting retains the title after pinning Meng with a sloppy roll-up. Roadwarrior Hawk saves Sting from a beatdown after the match. This is NOT a way you wanna start your show. The match only got tolerable when Sting was on offense. Other than that, it was mostly the pits.


Television Championship

The Renegade (W/Jimmy Hart) Vs Paul Orndorff

The Renegade retains the title with a back suplex. Referee, Nick Patrick fails to realize Orndorff's shoulders were up during the count. Basically, Orndorff got screwed. This match was terrible! The Renegade was extremely sloppy during this match, especially with his dropkicks. He's a poor man's version of The Ultimate Warrior. To make matters worse, the crowd HATED The Renegade and booed him every chance they had.


Kamala (W/Kevin Sullivan) Vs "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan

Kamala wins with help from The Zodiac. We've gone from bad to worse now! All I kept thinking during this match is why I'm wasting precious minutes watching this! The Zodiac drills Duggan with a freaking clock! a clock! I don't give the DUD rating very often, but this one is worthy of it.


Diamond Dallas Paige (W/The Diamond Doll & Max Muscle) Vs Dave Sullivan

This storyline is reminiscent of George Steele and Miss Elizabeth, only with Dave Sullivan being infatuated with The Diamond Doll. DDP wins with a Diamond Cutter. Yet, another poor match from this PPV! Nobody gave a damn about this storyline, nor should they.


Tag Team Championship (Triangle Match)

Harlem Heat (C) (W/Sister Sherri) Vs The Blue Bloods Vs The Nasty Boys

In one of the strangest finishes I've ever seen, Harlem Heat retains. This was a weird match for the most part. They weren't able to get into a proper rhythm at all. The finish made no sense and made Harlem Heat look very weak. Sadly, this has been the best match of the show so far.


Lifeguard Match

Ric Flair Vs Randy Savage

This is basically a lumberjack match. Savage wins with a flying elbow drop from the top. While this isn't their best match by any means, it's still Savage and Flair. I still thoroughly enjoyed this match, even if it wasn't their best outing. Savage and Flair can have a solid match with their eyes closed


WCW Heavyweight Championship (Steel Cage Match)

Hulk Hogan (C) (W/Dennis Rodman & Jimmy Hart) Vs Big Van Vader

Hogan wins by exiting the cage. Ric Flair berates Vader after the match for losing to Hogan. Vader turns face by beating on Flair and Arn Anderson. Vader challenges Flair and Anderson to a handicapped match. This was a pretty disappointing cage match. It wasn't terrible by any means, just rather basic and unimpressive. I felt Hogan beat him a little too easy as well, but that's Hogan for you. Vader's face turn wouldn't last very long because he'd leave for the WWF shortly after this.


This is one of the worst PPV's I've ever seen! That's saying something since WCW had quite a few stinkers. The beach setting is charming at first, but that wears off quickly once you realize how crappy the matches on the PPV are. The only match that is truly solid is the lifeguard match, and even that is nowhere near Savage and Flair at their best.
