Bobby Eaton & P.N News Vs 'Stunning' Steve Austin & Terry Taylor (W/Lady Blossom)
Eaton and News win. Austin sprays everyone with hairspray after the match. This was absolutely terrible. NOTHING happened. There were no big stunts, no imagination and everybody played it safe. A waste of talent for everyone involved.
The Diamond Studd (W/Diamond Dallas Page) Vs The Z-Man
The Diamond Studd is Scott Hall. The Studd wins with a back suplex with a bridge. This was a mediocre match. Hall was still green and his Studd gimmick was going nowhere. They both worked hard, but the results weren't there.
*3/4 out of 5
Oz (W/The Great Wizard) Vs Ron Simmons
Oz is Kevin Nash, in one of the most ridiculous gimmicks you'll ever see. Simmons wins with a flying shoulder tackle. Good lord, was this terrible! It moved at a snail's pace and Nash didn't look like he knew what he was doing in there. There were several times Nash blew his spots. Poor, JR had to call this with a straight face. It was just a horrendous outing from these two.
½* out of 5
Richard Morton (W/Alexandra York) Vs Robert Gibson
This is the battle of the Rock & Roll Express. Morton had turned heel to join The York Foundation. Alexandra York is Terri Runnels. Morton wins after drilling Gibson with a computer. This was agonizingly slow. 90% of it features Morton working on the leg of Gibson's. It became brutally boring after a while. It's a shame, because I was looking forward to this.
*1/2 out of 5
Six-Man Tag Team Elimination Match
Dustin Rhodes & The Young Pistols Vs The Fabulous Freebirds (Michael Hayes, Jimmy Garvin & Badstreet)
Dustin Rhodes is the last man standing after he pins Badstreet. This is another match that felt like it went on too long. Eliminations didn't happen all that quickly, and when they did, they were quick and sudden. Overall, it was average.
**1/4 out of 5
The Yellow Dog (Brian Pillman under a mask) Vs Johnny B. Badd (W/Teddy Long)
The Yellow Dog wins by DQ after Teddy Long tries to unmask The Yellow Dog. This was another disappointing match. I expected an entertaining, high-flying contest. It didn't move slowly or anything, it was just rather unexciting.
** out of 5
Eric Bischoff tries to interview Missy Hyatt while she's in the shower, but she sends him away. Sleazy E strikes again!
Big Josh Vs Black Blood
Big Josh is the original Doink the Clown, and Black Blood is Billy Jack Haynes under a mask with an executioner type gimmick. Big Josh wins after Dustin Rhodes interferes. Yet, another stinker on this show. The only time the crowd came alive is when the lumberjacks were brawling with each other.
* out of 5
El Gigante Vs The One Man Gang (W/Kevin Sullivan)
Sullivan and The OMG are dressed so over the top. El Gigante comes out with midgets. Yeah, this PPV can kiss my ass. El Gigante wins. This was an absolute disaster. I was surprised to see Gigante do moves like suplexes and stuff, but this was really, really bad.
3/4* out of 5
Russian Chain Match
Sting Vs Nikita Koloff
Nikita Koloff wins. Wow. I didn't expect that! This match was alright, I'd consider it to be barely above average. Nothing really outstanding happens, but it keeps your attention. Considering how bad this show is, that's all I can really ask for.
**1/4 out of 5
WCW World Heavyweight Title (Steel Cage Match)
Lex Luger Vs Barry Windham
There are loud "We want Flair" chants. He left WCW at this juncture. Luger wins the title with a piledriver. Luger turns heel after the match and joins Harley Race. Well, this was a decent main event. I felt Luger was a bit lazy at times, but overall, I didn't mind it. Luger winning was obvious.
**1/2 out of 5
Steel Cage Match
Arn Anderson & Paul E. Dangerously Vs Rick Steiner & Missy Hyatt
Dick Murdoch & Dick Slater kidnap Missy Hyatt before the match begins and take her to the back. Rick Steiner wins anyway after pinning Paul E. with a clothesline. Well, this was a harmless way to end the show. Not a good match by any means and the kidnapping of Missy was weird, but eh.
* out of 5
This is simply put a terrible PPV. There is not one match that stands out on this show. The only thing noteworthy is Lex's heel turn. It's a groan fest. Unless you're a die-hard wrestling fan like myself, stay far away from this.
