Winner and Still NWA US Champion- Barry Windham *** ( Good opening match. Windham turned up the aggression and was beginning to thrive in his new role as a heel. Armstrong being put in the Figure-4 for like four minutes and not tapping drove me nuts though. )

The Rock Ní Roll Express declares they are back and no tag titles are safe as long as they are around.

We see a contract signing aboard a ship called ďThe BlackhawkĒ for Ric Flair and Lex Luger at the Great American Bash.

The Four Horsemen arrive to the building and they warn Lex Luger that he still has to make it to Baltimore for the match at the Bash.

Lex Luger arrives to the building and the Horsemen attack him!!! They lay him out in the parking lot and Luger is busted open. This angle would play into the finish at Great American Bash 88.

Winners and Still NWA US Tag Team Champions- The Fantastics ***1/2 ( Very good tag match. Before becoming the Bushwackers in the WWF, the Sheepherders were awesome, dirty heels and The Fantastics were masters of baby face selling, so this came out extremely well. )

Precious is upset and walks away from Williams and Jimmy Garvin.
Winners- Jimmy and Ronnie Garvin ** (This match wasnít good. It was mostly dull stuff with the camera and announces focusing more on Sullivan and his piece of paper, so the match took a backseat. The stuff after the match was better than the match itself. )

Winners by DQ- Dusty Rhodes and Sting *** ( This was a fun main event but this didnít have the heat of the tag match of the first clash and the finish was very flat. )


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.
 
Final Score:  6.0   [ Average ]  legend
