The 411: This was a step down from the greatness that was the original Clash of the Champions. Still, this was a terrible follow up, with some decent matches across the show and some good angles that help build toward the Great American Bash that was coming up. The main issue is that there are matches on that show that are given way too much time and it causes the show to drag a bit and this is going to be a problem on the next couple of Clash shows. I'd say if you are bored this show is worth a glance otherwise there are better shows on the horizon than this one.
