(01.23.96)

Live from Las Vegas, NV (Caesar's Palace)

Tony Schiavone & Bobby Heenan

Public Enemy Vs The Nasty Boys

The match ends in a double disqualification. To their credit, they kept this a brawl. Tables and weapons got involved and it was kind of glorious.

*1/4

Eric Bischoff brings out Ric Flair and The Giant for an interview. Flair says losing the title meant nothing to him because tonight he gets revenge on Savage. The Giant says he's gonna get rid of Hogan and Savage forever after he's through with them.

Dean Malenko Vs Alex Wright

Malenko wins with a jackknife roll-up. They did some fancy stuff, but it just lacked spark. I also thought it was a bit sloppy at times, mostly from Alex Wright.

*3/4

The Taskmaster (Kevin Sullivan) (W/Jimmy Hart) Vs Disco Inferno

An Elvis impersonator comes out with a singing telegram, claiming Disco Inferno is at the wedding of Sister Sherri and Col. Parker and won't be wrestling tonight. Kevin Sullivan kicks the crap out of the Elvis impersonator.

Thoughts: Pardon my language, but what the fu****** was this for? This was so utterly pointless, it's not even funny. It's garbage like this that put WCW out of business. Also, why is Sullivan acting like face?

DUD

The WCW Tag Team Champions, Sting and Lex Luger come out for an interview. Luger says there is no controversy and he and Sting are the rightful tag team champion. The Road Warriors interrupt to a big pop. Animal says they want a title shot from Sting and Luger. Sting is all for it, but Luger says Road Warriors should wait their turn because they've been on the shelf. Luger says he knows Animal has a bad back and he wouldn't wanna end his career by putting him in the Torture Rack. Hawk says Luger is close to getting a beating.

Thoughts: The Road Warriors showing up is very cool. This segment worked well for the most part, teasing a dream match.

We get an update on Paul Orndorff's condition. He insists the attack by The Four Horsemen on him was premeditated. Despite his career threatening neck injury, he promises to get revenge on The Horsemen.

Brian Pillman Vs Eddie Guerrero

Pillman pins Eddie with a handful of tights. The match wasn't bad, it was far too short to really be anything special, though. This match is most famous for the Pillman/Heenan incident. Brian Pillman sneaks up behind Heenan and takes off his jacket. Heenan is legitimately startled and literally says "What the f*** are you doing?" Heenan was so flustered he left the table.

**

Hulk Hogan, Randy Savage and NFL player Kevin Greene come out for an interview. Most of the stuff they say isn't worth recapping.

Tag Team Championship

Sting & Lex Luger (C) Vs The Blue Bloods

The Blue Bloods are Steven Regal & Bobby Eaton. Sting and Luger retain when Sting makes Eaton submit with a Scorpion Deathlock. The slow start kinda hinders this match a little bit. It's a shame because it ended just when it was starting to get good.

*3/4

Brian Pillman says he's gonna teach Kevin Sullivan and everyone else a lesson in respect.

Mexican Heavyweight Championship

Konnan (C) Vs Psicosis

Konnan retains with a submission I'm not familiar with. This felt awkward from the outset. Nobody in the crowd knew how to react to it and it lacked spark. Konnan would see better days

*1/2

Col. Parker and Sister Sherri Martel are about get married at a Little White Chapel at a Drive-Up Window. Madusa shows up from Col. Parker's trailer and brawls with Sherri. It's as awful as it sounds.

Ric Flair & The Giant (W/Jimmy Hart) Vs Hulk Hogan & Randy Savage (W/Kevin Greene, Woman & Miss Elizabeth)

Miss Elizabeth made her return to wrestling after almost a four-year absence. Flair and The Giant win after Flair pins Savage with a foreign object. This main event was decent for the most part. Flair had to get some heat back after losing the title to Savage.

**1/2

Overall, this show isn't all that great. To be honest, it felt like a longer version of Nitro. If I was watching this back then, I'd be glad I didn't have to pay for it.
