Winners- Konnan and Tygress * ( The Wilson and Tygress interactions were beyond awful and were an absolute embarrassment. It was uncomfortable watching Douglas throw punches at Tygress and seeing him sell for Tygress’ shitty offense was quite sad. The Konnan/Douglas interactions saved this from being all time awful, but man this was not good. )

David Flair has two doctors with him and says after the match, he will have the DNA he needs to prove Buff Bagwell is a liar.

DNA Match- Buff Bagwell vs. David Flair

Flair is busted open and back in, Bagwell hits the Blockbuster. The ref finally sees the blood and the match is over.
Winner- Buff Bagwell 1/4* ( Flair was basically doing his fathers’ mannerisms in a poor fashion and there was zero flow to this match. The ending is hilarious as the ref had no idea how the match was supposed to end so everyone looked lost. This was a disaster. )

After the match, Lex Luger comes out and hug, only to have Luger clothesline him. He dumps Bagwell to the floor and he sends Bagwell into the post. Bagwell has a busted mouth and Flair grabs some of his blood.

Scott Steiner complains that people are talking about Goldberg and not him. Steiner says tonight he is going to beat Booker T.

Kickboxing Match for Commissioner of WCW- Mike Sanders w/Perfect Event vs. The Cat w/Ms. Jones
Before the match, Sanders claims he has been training and he promises an ass kicking.
Round 1: Cat fires away with jabs and he catches Sanders with a high kick. Sanders is up at 7. Cat sweeps the legs of Sanders and he gets up at 8. They spare and time runs out in the first round.

Cat nails Sanders and heads outside to brawl with Douglas. The ref counts him out.
Winner by Count-Out- Mike Sanders DUD ( This was so bad. This was a horribly worked kick boxing match that dragged on and on and ended in a complete bullshit finish when it should have simply been The Cat kicking Sanders’ ass. Just a complete joke. )

Kronik says they get paid tonight where Goldberg competes or not. Kronik reminds him that if Goldberg doesn’t compete, he is out of WCW for good.

They slug it out and Awesome hits a flying shoulder block, forcing Vampiro to bail. Suicide plancha to the floor by Awesome and Vampiro sends him into the railings to come back. Awesome backdrops Vampiro into the crowd and Awesome follows out. They brawl in the crowd and Vampiro attacks Awesome with someone’s cane. A fan throws a head butt at Awesome so Awesome and Vampiro beat him up. Well that’s good. They go back to ringside and Vampiro hits a clothesline off the announce table. They have a chair fight in the ring and Vampiro superkicks a chair into Awesome for 2. Chops in the corner by Vamprio and Awesome hammers away in the corner to come back.

He goes for a superplex but Awesome blocks and hits the Awesome Bomb off the top for 3.
Winner- Mike Awesome * ( Poor Mike Awesome tried his hardest but my god Vampiro was awful. He was botching stuff left and right and it was embarrassing how poor his performance was. Awesome tried his hardest to make Vampiro look marginally decent but he’s not a miracle worker. )

Hugh G. Rection says he came back to make a point, win, lose, or draw.

WCW US Championship- Lance Storm © and Jim Duggan w/Major Gunns vs. Gen. Rection
Storm claims Rection’s never say die attitude is propaganda and primises to give him the beating of his life. They play the Canadian National Anthem.

Elix Skipper comes out on the apron but Major Gunns nails him with the Canadian Flag to prevent interference. Duggan goes to nail Rection with the 2x4 but misses and Rection hits the side Russian leg sweep. Rection goes up and hits No Laughing Matter (which he overshoots) for 3!!!
Winner and NEW WCW US Champion- General Rection ** ( After the stretch of crap preceding this match, this felt like an Undertaker/Michaels classic compared to everything else before it. It had overbooking with a purpose and General Rection overcame the evil Canadians to win the US Championship and the freedom of Major Gunns. This was good booking and one of the very few highlights of this show. )

Jarrett nails Sting with a guitar for 3.
Winner- Jeff Jarrett ¼* ( The crowd could not have cared less about the idiotic story of Jarrett trying to play mindgames by going to Stings’ past. The endless Stings were cheesy and this whole match is Vince Russo at his absolute worse. It’s not hard to have Sting and Jarrett have a good match, let them do their thing. The minimal amount of wrestling they got to do keeps this from DUD but holy crap this is one of the most ridiculously overbooked matches I have ever seen. )

Winner by DQ and Still WCW World Heavyweight Champion- Booker T *** (HOLY CRAP GOOD WRESTLING!!!! I enjoyed the story of Booker standing up to and hanging with Steiner who was acting like a bully and playing just a great, dominant heel. The finish sucked but it played to Steiner’s character and compared to the finishes on this show, I really have no right to complain about the finish here. )

Video package for Kronik/Goldberg airs.

Goldberg escapes a suplex attempt and he spears Clark through the table for 3. Adams attacks from behind and hits a full nelson slam for 2 as I guess this is an elimination match. Spear to Adams and Goldberg hits the Jackhammer for 3.
Winner- Goldberg * ( They only had three minutes, Goldberg squashed WCW’s most dominant tag team, there were two pin falls in a non-elimination match, thank god this show is over. )



The 411: In a year of terrible PPVs and booking for WCW, this show somehow topped them all. That middle stretch of the show featured some of the sloppiest wrestling, horrendous booking, and business embarrassing moments I have ever seen in one show. This show does not have any redeeming value and it is a shame that some great talent on this show had to endure such horrible booking and were given complete garbage to work this. Avoid this show at all costs, it is one of the all-time worst PPVs in history.
 
Final Score:  2.0   [ Very Bad ]  legend
