Street Fight (Falls Count Anywhere)
Public Enemy Vs The Nasty Boys
The Nasty Boys win. This street fight was a little bit too repetitive for my liking. There were too many of the same stunts going on for my liking. I also didn't care for the finish and found it to be somewhat anti-climatic.
Johnny B Badd (W/The Diamond Doll) Vs Diamond Dallas Paige
The Diamond Doll is on the line here as well, as well as 6 Million dollars. Johnny B Badd wins with a tombstone piledriver. This is ANOTHER excellent match between these two. Every time these two wrestle, they seem to create instant magic together. It's filled with great near-falls and several exciting spots. Plus, you get an added bonus by getting to look at Kimberly (The Diamond Doll)
Tag Team Championship
Sting & Lex Luger (C) Vs Harlem Heat
The winner of this match faces The Road Warriors for the titles later tonight. Sting and Luger retain, thanks to interference from the Road Warriors. They get praised often by wrestling fans, but most Harlem Heat matches I see end up being boring. This is one of them.
United States Championship
Konnan (C) Vs The One Man Gang
Konnan wins with a somersault splash. This was a terrible match that the crowd was completely dead for! OMG had way too much offense for my liking. As a result, it really ruined any chance this match had at being quality.
"I Respect You" Strap Match
Kevin Sullivan (W/Jimmy Hart) Vs Brian Pillman
In order to win this match, the loser has to say "I respect you" to the opponent, it's basically an I Quit match with a strap. Pillman gives up on purpose and just walks off on Sullivan when the match has just begun. This was a really dumb finish. making this match almost somewhat pointless. I realize both are heels, but come on!
Arn Anderson comes out and is gonna have a strap match with Kevin Sullivan, now!
Kevin Sullivan (W/Jimmy Hart) Vs Arn Anderson
Before the match can finish, Ric Flair comes out and talks sense into both guys, claiming Hogan and Savage are more important. Anderson and Sullivan put their differences aside. It's a bit of a shame, because I was starting to get into the strap match. The crowds were begging to cheer Flair and Anderson, even though they were heels.
Tag Team Championship
Sting & Lex Luger (C) Vs The Road Warriors
The match takes forever to get going because Luger is too scared to get in the ring. The match ends in a double countout after all four brawl with each other on the outside. Boy, was this boring! There were multiple occasions where I kept looking at my phone because of the lack of excitement in this match. The dysfunction of Sting and Luger is/was starting to wear very thin.
WCW Heavyweight Championship (Steel Cage Match)
Randy Savage (C) (W/Miss Elizabeth) Vs Ric Flair (W/Woman)
Ric Flair becomes a 13 time world champion after waffling Savage with Elizabeth's shoe. Miss Elizabeth turned heel and is in cahoots with Ric Flair. This cage match is pretty disappointing. When Flair and Savage are in a match together, I automatically expected more from the two. It just felt like they seemed unsure of what to fully do with all the time they had and neither seemed truly motivated. As disappointed as I am, it is an above average cage match.
Hulk Hogan runs into the cage and gives Arn Anderson and Ric Flair a couple of shots with the chair. I didn't like Miss Elizabeth's heel turn at all. Elizabeth should have been like Ricky Steamboat, a face for the rest of her career. Her being with Flair made no sense.
Hulk Hogan Vs The Giant (W/Jimmy Hart & Kevin Sullivan) (Steel Cage Match)
This is part 2 of the steel cage. Hogan wins by exiting the cage. After the match, Hogan fends off the ENTIRE Dungeon of Doom with his fists and a steel chair with a bad eye. Loch Ness (Giant Haystacks) wants to get in the cage, but The Dungeon of Doom won't let him. I've seen Hogan act like Superman on many occasions, but this was ridiculous! Not only does he beat The Giant, but he becomes a one man wrecking crew by beating up The Dungeon of Doom. By the way, the cage match was pretty awful.
Yet, another crappy PPV from WCW! It's filled with illogical twists and turns like WCW was known to do, the usual chaos, and mediocre matches. The only worthwhile thing on this PPV is the match between Diamond Dallas Paige and Johnny B Badd.
