Decent enough, 7 May 2017

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

1st Match: The Nasty Boys vs Harlem Heat, WCW World Tag Team Championships. So for some reason this is a handicap match for the first half. Not sure why, but it turns into a regular tag match after that. The Nasty Boys win, which is a feel good ending, and the match had a good pace to it. A decent start. Rating: 3/5

2nd Match: Kevin Sullivan vs Brutus Beefcake. Not much to say about this match, it's short, but it's better than some of Sullivan's other matches. It's watchable, that's about it. Rating: 2.5/5

3rd Match: Wahoo McDaniel vs Dick Murdoch. So this is a legend's match, complete with black-and-white filter. It's a bit distracting, but I appreciate the respect for people who paved the way for the wrestlers of today. It's worth at least one watch. Rating: 3/5

4th Match: The Great Muta vs Paul Orndorff, IWGP Heavyweight Championship. The best match so far, not as good as Muta's match against Austin from the previous year, but still good technical wrestling match. I'm not sure why Orndorff was chosen for this, but it was a good match-up. Rating: 4/5

5th Match: Arn Anderson vs Alex Wright, WCW World TV Championship. Another solid match for me. Wright has some good moves, and even though he loses, he showed a lot of potential. I don't think he ever made it big, but you can see glimmers of stardom from him here. Also, Anderson DDTs him to hell for the finish, I thought that was pretty sick. Rating: 4/5

6th Match: Meng vs Hawk. A nothing match that ends in a double count-out. Awesome. At least the match is 5 minutes long, but I was lookin' forward to seein' my first Road Warrior match, and this wasn't a good example. Rating: 1.5/5

7th: "Totally Not Big Bossman" vs Sting, "Lights Out" match. Basically a No DQ match. Sting of course has the crowd worshiping him the whole match, and it's not completely one-sided. Pretty good for being 10 minutes. Rating: 3.5/5

8th Match: Hulk Hogan and Randy Savage vs Ric Flair and Vader. Talk about a star-studded main event. Sure Hogan and Savage win, but I liked just how chaotic the match was. Also, the beatdown of Savage's dad after the fight was pretty low, even for Flair and Vader. Rating: 3.5/5

Final Rating: 6 out of 10. It took WCW a couple of tries, but this is the best PPV of 1995 so far. The long interview segments are still there from last year, but there are still some good matches. Not a great show, but decent enough.
