Received an official VHS release in the USA (catalogue number T7080), however the title was misprinted on the cover as "WCW World War 3 '96". As a result of this error, the official VHS of WCW World War 3 1995 is often mistaken as being WCW World War 3 (1996) 1996 - a different event. See more »

Hulk Hogan is with Sting and Randy Savage. Hogan is back to wearing the red and yellow attire and calls Sting and Randy Savage his only true friends.
Johnny B Badd (C) Vs Diamond Dallas Paige (W/The Diamond Doll)
Kimberly is sick of DDP's crap, so the winner gets The Diamond Doll's services. Badd retains the title and wins the services of The Diamond Doll with a slingshot leg drop. You can't ask for more when it comes to openers. It wasn't all Badd this time because DDP was vastly improving in the ring. These two just seem to click when they wrestle. The melodrama with Kimberly/DDP/Badd is slightly silly, but that's wrestling for you. I'd fight for Kimberly's services too.
Taped Fist Match
Big Bubba Rogers Vs Hacksaw Jim Duggan
Big Bubba is The Big Bossman. V.K Wallstreet (I.R.S) interferes and hands Bubba a chain. Bubba drills Duggan with it and knocks Duggan out to win the match. This match is the definition of awful. If I wanted to watch a match of nothing but punches, I'd watch boxing. Because of all the punches, this match is extremely boring to watch. Both men were past their prime at this point anyway.
Nakano and Hokuto win when Nakano hits a leg drop from the top. This match was nothing but action. It was non-stop right from the outset, featuring one spectacular move after another. It was very entertaining overall.
United States Championship
Kensuki Sasaki (C) (W/Sony Onoo) Vs Chris Beniot
Sasaki retains the title with a brainbuster. I'd say this match was just above average. I found Sasaki's offense to be somewhat boring and it kinda dragged the match down a bit. Whenever Beniot was on offense, the pace really picked up. The crowd was dead for most of the match.
Randy Savage Vs Lex Luger (W/Jimmy Hart)
Luger wins by submission with an arm hold. Luger keeps the hold applied after the match until Sting comes down and convinces Luger to break the hold. This was a pretty boring match that ended rather abruptly. Most of it consisted of boring brawling. Luger getting a clean win was rather surprising.
Ric Flair Vs Sting
Sting wins clean by submission with The Scorpion Deathlock. Another really good matches from these two, what else is new? These two can wrestle in their sleep and probably get at least ** stars from me. There is one thing that annoys me, though. Flair keeps going for the chop, despite that it NEVER works on Sting.

I'm not a fan of battle royals so I'm not looking forward to this. I'm expecting a bit of a train wreck. There are three rings to hold all the wrestlers. Randy Savage wins the Battle Royal to become the new WCW Champion, but Hulk Hogan was never officially eliminated. Hogan, like the selfish jerk he is, complains incessantly about it to the officials. The issue will be resolved on Nitro. This was a complete waste of time. This Battle Royal was done to end the controversy about the WCW Title, yet they go and create more. It was hard to pay attention because of the Three Screens at times and it lacked action.
Overall, this is a pretty good show if you cut the Battle Royal. Three matches of *** plus is nothing to sneeze at. But the crap at the main event is one of the reasons why WCW went out of business.
Hogan is a jerk.
