1st Match: Alex Wright vs Brian Pillman. A great start to the show, two high flyers going' at it, and the crowd is 100% into it. A great mix of technical wrestling and acrobatics. Rating: 4/5
2nd Match: Dave Sullivan vs Diamond Dallas Page, Arm Wrestling contest. This exists only to fill time, at least it's short and some-what entertaining. Rating: 3/5
3rd Match: hacksaw Jim Duggan vs Sgt. Craig Pittman. No idea who Pittman is, but I'm not really impressed by him here. Duggan's alright, but his gimmick's gotten really old to me. The match ending in a DQ also doesn't help. Rating: 2.5/5
4th Match: Dick Slater and Bunkhouse Buck vs Harlem Heat. Not much to this match either. It's less than 10 minutes, and Booker's entertaining, but there wasn't much to keep me invested. Rating: 2.5/5
5th Match: Arn Anderson vs The Renegade, WCW World TV Championship. Despite Renegade being an Ultimate Warrior clone, I like him here. There's not much to his gimmick, he just no-sells a lot, but I still found it entertaining for some reason. Rating: 3/5
6th Match: The Nasty Boys vs The Blue Bloods, WCW World Tag Team Championships. The Nasty Boys thrive in brawls like this. Even though Regal and the other guy are more technical wrestlers, the sheer insanity of this match is a good counter balance. Harlem Heat interfere at the end, but the Nasty Boys still win, so it's a good ending. Rating: 4/5
7th Match: Sting vs Meng, WCW US Heavyweight Championship. A surprisingly good match, Meng isn't all that impressive to me, but Sting elevates his performance for both of them to shine here. Rating: 3.5/5
8th Match: Ric Flair vs Randy Savage. A grudge match through and through. Both guys brawl all over the ringside area, and put up with a lot of abuse. Had this been a No DQ match, this probably would've gotten a higher rating, but what I'm really surprised with was that Flair didn't need interference to win.Sure he cheats to win, but it makes sense within the context of the match. A great match to end the show on. Rating: 4.5/5
Final Rating: 7 out of 10. Giving Hogan the night off and allowing other wrestlers to highlight the show was a great idea here. WCW has managed to drag it's way up from the mediocrity from earlier this year.
