Hollywood Hogan and Eric Bischoff start the show. Bischoff says the nWo is declaring war on anybody associated with WCW. He blames Bret Hart for losing his title. He says he'll beat him from one end of Venice Beach to the other and if he has to stoop as low as to go to Canada, he'll do the same thing. As a Canadian, that's great heel heat. Hogan calls out the Macho Man. Savage comes out. Hogan says he was wrong to attack Savage. To make amends, Bischoff has made Hogan and Savage Vs Sting and Luger on Nitro next week. He says Savage should thank Bischoff. Hogan had illusions of grander. He says there is a pecking order, but Macho dropped the ball. He wants Savage to apologize for not living up to Hogan's expectations. Macho apologizes for not decking Hogan sooner and drills Hogan. He also drills Bischoff and escapes up the entrance way. Well, that's Macho's face turn.
Kidman Vs Prince Iaukea
Mortis wants to join The Flock. Raven says he has to get rid of that ridiculous costume and start to be himself. Kidman wins with the Shooting Star Press. What I saw of it was good, I'll say that.
Meng Vs Hugh Morrus
Oh, yay! Meng wins with the Tongan Death Grip. He gives the death grip to The Barbarian (Because why not?) and almost takes Jimmy Hart's head off with a kick. Fun aftermath

United States Title
DDP (C) Vs Mortis
DDP wins with the Diamond Cutter. Van Hammer and The Flock carry Mortis to the back. Actually, a decent match. The crowd was red hot for DDP. Raven nails Mortis with the evenflow DDT on the ramp after.
**1/4 out of 5
Steve McMichael Vs Jim 'The Anvil' Neidhart
The match ends in a no-contest after The British Bulldog comes out and brawls with McMichael. Not really clear whose face and who's heel.
Buff Bagwell Vs Chris Adams
Bagwell wins with the Buff Blockbuster. This was a mediocre match that nobody gave a damn about.
*1/2 out of 5
Chris Jericho (C) Vs Chavo Guerrero
Jericho wins with the Lion Tamer. Jericho tries to take Juventud Guerrera's mask off after, but Juvi fights him off. I thought this match was OK at best. Not really exciting.

The British Bulldog Vs Sick Boy
The Bulldog wins with a running powerslam. McMichael runs out and brawls with Bulldog. Next!
*1/4 out of 5
Chris Benoit Vs Raven
Benoit and Raven is interrupted by The Flock. DDP saves Benoit. This was pretty fun while it lasted. Benoit and Raven have good chemistry with each other.
**1/4 out of 5
Goldberg Vs Glacier
Goldberg destroys Glacier, much to delight. Glacier sucks, so I loved this.
1/4* out of 5
Ric Flair Vs Lex Luger
Luger and Flair ends in a no-contest after Savage interferes. Hogan and the nWo run out and attack Savage and Luger until Sting makes the save. Sting and Luger battle the nWo to end the show. Luger is such a bore, but this match was decent. Hot ending too.
**1/2 out of 5
Overall, this was a decent show. It had a hot beginning, hot and cold middle, and a hot ending. Savage was in the midst of a face turn, but Sting's novelty was slowly starting to wear off. Sting is one of my all time favorites, but this was over 2 years Sting had been feuding with the nWo.
