Trivia

The "I respect you" strap match between "The Loose Cannon" Brian Pillman and "The Taskmaster" Kevin Sullivan was Pillman's last match in WCW and was designed as an inside-joke for "smart fans." The "match" lasted about 33 seconds at which point Pillman said over the microphone "I respect you, bookerman!" and walked away laughing. The whole thing was planned out ahead of time by Pillman and Sullivan, who was the booker (head decision maker) for WCW at the time. However, they did not let anyone else in WCW, including the office, know what they were doing. They were going for realism, which ended up backfiring after Pillman did a "worked-shoot" (not actually real but acting like it was) promo where he asked for his release from WCW and received it before Sullivan realized the office wasn't in on the joke.

Please don't let this be a rerun of '95
25 August 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

1st Match: Public Enemy vs The Nasty Boys, Falls Count Anywhere Street Fight. The show certainly starts off on a high point with this. It might've been to just copy ECW, but I still enjoyed it. There are chair shots, tables broken, trash can lids, and all out chaos. It might just be a bunch of spots, but this is the best WCW match I've seen in like 7 months. Here's the bad news though, this is the match of the night, and we still have 2 and a half hours left. Rating: 4.5/5

2nd Match: DDP vs Johnny B. Badd, winner gets the WCW World TV Title and the rest of DDP's money. The match is decent, this is like the 6th meeting between the two though, so it's all been done before. The most noticeable thing about the whole match is the ref's count is terrible, he has the slowest 3-counts since Teddy Long. I'm not joking, it takes like 6 seconds for him to count to 3, it's that noticeable. Maybe he was a new ref, but good lord is it bad. Badd wins, cool, put him in another feud please. Rating: 2.5/5

3rd Match: Sting and Lex Luger vs Harlem Heat, WCW World Tag Team Championships. Can they just pull the trigger on Luger already and make him just a heel or face, he's changed sides like 4 times in the past 3 shows. The match itself is nothing special, no real action to speak of, and then the Legion of Doom come out and screw Harlem Heat out of the win. Great! That was so worth my time! Rating: 2.5/5

4th Match: One Man Gang vs Konnan, WCW US Heavyweight Championship. This is terrible, neither guy's styles fit, and One Man Gang just lumbers around doing nothing. He also doesn't do Konnan any favors by not taking any of him moves well. It's just a mess, and it completely kills the crowd that was already dead to begin with. Rating: 1.5/5

5th Match: Kevin Sullivan vs Brian Pillman, "I Respect You" Strap match. Pillman quits in 90 seconds and walks out of WCW. Pointless. Rating: None

6th Match: Kevin Sullivan vs Arn Anderson. A boring way to "make up" for Pillman just leaving. An impromptu match with nothing to it, until Flair has both guys become friends again. Again, pointless. Rating: 1.5/5

7th Match: Sting and Lex Luger vs The Road Warriors, WCW World Tag Team Championships. So after 5 straight minutes of stalling by Luger, this boring match starts. There's no highlight, because the match was dead from the start. And to top it all off, it ends in a double countout, so the whole match is just a waste of time. Stop booking matches this way! Rating: 1.5/5

8th Match: Randy Savage vs Ric Flair, Steel Cage match for the WCW World Heavyweight Championship. An OK match I guess, I'm not really a fan of Steel Cage matches, because I can only count on one hand the amount of great ones I've seen, and this isn't one of them. The only interesting part I guess is Miss Elizabeth turning on Savage and helping Flair win the title again. So Savage had it for a month, lost it to Flair, who then lost it to Savage 2 weeks later, who then lost it to Flair 2 weeks later. You know what I love, pointless title reigns that serve no purpose. Rating: 2/5

9th Match: Hulk Hogan vs Big Show, Steel Cage match where the only way to win is escape. Of course Hogan gets top billing, why wouldn't he, he practically owns the company. Another bland cage match, with no interesting spots, or brutality, just the usual escape spots that fail. The only neat part is Big Show no selling 3 Hogan leg drops, other than that, this is just Hogan winning with no suspense or excitement. Rating: 1.5/5

Final Rating: 4 out of 10. There's only one stand out match on this show, the rest are either matches that have been done to death, or just bad matches. Please WCW, get your stuff together, I can't take another terrible year like '95.
